SC Deferes Ayodhya Case Hearing to March 14
The Supreme Court has adjourned the politically-sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case to March 14 since documentation and translations are yet to be complete. The bench, comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice S. Abdul Nazeer, however, made it clear that it would first hear the petitioners in the case and then intervenors like Subramanian Swamy and Shyam Benegal. The Ayodhya Sadbhavna Samnvyay Maha Samiti had made a proposal to the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on the dispute. In a letter Samiti president Amarnath Mishra has proposed that the dispute site be given to the Hindu parties, while a mosque can be built on the land "that will be made available by the Nirmohi Akhara".
