NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to soon list appeals related to the dispute over ownership of 2.7 acres of Babri Masjid-Ramjanambhoomi land.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy in his petition had sought an urgent hearing of the case.
“We are going to list the main matter soon. We will take a decision on it,” said the court bench of chief justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud.
As recently as March-end, the top court refused to give an early hearing to the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case, on Swamy’s plea.During that hearing, after the court’s refusal, Swamy said he was not happy. “So don’t be happy,” the top court had said.
On March 21, the apex court said that fresh attempts must be made by all parties to end the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute through a negotiated settlement. The Chief Justice had offered to mediate between both parties in the Ayodhya case and also said he was willing spare any other sitting SC judge for the purpose
