The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday extended till May 31 the status quo on the implementation on its September 30 order on the Ayodhya title suits.


While extending the status quo, a special Lucknow full bench of the court comprising justices SU Khan, Sudhir Agarwal and VK Dixit reserved its order on three review petitions filed by local lawyer M Ismail Farooqui.

Farooqui had moved petitions seeking review in the judgement on the suits of Rajendra Singh, Nirmohi Akhara and Bhagwan Ram Lala Virajman.

The court had earlier extended the status quo till February 15.

In its September 30 order, the court had provided three months time for filing the appeal while directing that the judgement shall not be operative for three months from that date.

The court had ruled by a majority verdict that the disputed land in Ayodhya be divided equally into three parts among Hindus and Muslims and that the place where the makeshift temple of Lord Ram exists belongs to Hindus.

The next sitting of the full bench will take place on April 28.

A local saying in Kashi is that no one is “chela” (disciple), everyone is a “guru” (the teacher or boss). It is not uncommon to hear people greet each other with a “ka guru” or “ka raja”, which roughly translates to “hello boss”, “hello king”.
