SC to hear Ayodhya pleas on August 11
The Supreme Court has posted to August 11 petitions relating to the dispute over ownership of 2.7 acres of Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi land.

Appeals challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict on the disputed land will be heard by a three-judge bench. The matter was mentioned before Chief Justice J S Khehar on July 21 by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy who sought early adjudication of the decades-old dispute.

The CJI had assured Swamy of early listing and the case has now been posted for next week. "We are going to list the main matter soon. We will take a decision on it, " the CJI had said.


Apart from starting hearing on the vexed issue, the apex court is also slated to deliver its verdict on the constitutional validity of triple talaq.


The Ayodhya issue has been pending in the SC since 2010 after Allahabad HC divided the land equally between 'Ram Lalla', Nirmohi Akhara and Sunni Wakf Board.


Swamy said the main appeals against the HC order were pending in the apex court for the last seven years and they required urgent hearing. He has filed a separate petition seeking enforcement of his right to worship at the site.


In 2010, the Lucknow bench of Allahabad HC had ruled a three-way division of the 2.77 acres at the disputed site in Ayodhya. The three-judge bench, by a 2:1 majority, had said the land be partitioned equally among three parties, 'Ram Lalla', Nirmohi Akhara and Sunni Wakf Board.
