The Ayodhya title dispute has reached the Supreme Court with the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha filing a caveat to pre-empt any orders being passed without hearing it. The Mahasabha said it will file a petition challenging the September 30 verdict of the Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court.

In its caveat filed last week through its national president Swami Chakrapani, the Hindu Mahasabha has requested the court not to pass orders on any appeal against the high court judgment without hearing it.

The organisation’s general secretary Indira Tiwari said Mahasabha was not in favour of any compromise on the issue and wanted a legal solution to the dispute.

“We want only legal solution. We are against any type of compromise as we are in favour of constructing a grand

Ram temple in Ayodhya,” she said.

Terming the moves towards resolving the issue through reconciliation as a “drama”, Tewari said that the Mahasabha has neither approached any of the Hindu litigants in the case nor has it been approached by any of them.

While holding that the place where the makeshift temple of Lord Rama currently existed belonged to Hindus, the HC

had ruled that the 2.77 acre disputed land in Ayodhya be equally divided into three parts between Ram Lalla, Nirmohi Akhara and the Sunni Central Wakf Board.

The Wakf Board has already declared its decision to challenge the HC verdict in the SC.

Uttar Pradesh unit president of the Mahasabha Kamlesh Tewari said in Lucknow that it had been done to ensure that the Mahasabha’s veiwpoint is heard in case if some other party reached the court on the issue.
