The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court will pronounce its judgement on the 60-year-old Ayodhya title suits on September 24, a decision that may trigger a political fallout.
The date for pronouncement of the judgement reserved by a special full bench comprising Justices S.U Khan, Sudhir Agarwal and D.V Sharma on July 26, was conveyed to the counsels appearing in the four title suits relating to the disputed site at Ayodhya.
The court will be addressing three issues. One, whether there was a temple at the disputed site, prior to 1538. Two, whether the suit filed by the Babri committee in 1961 is barred by limitation. And third, whether Muslims perfected their title through adverse possession.
Nothing to worry: PM
“There is nothing to worry,” Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said about the fallout of the court verdict. “I am aware of it. The situation has to be faced. We should wait for the decision of the court,” he said at an Iftar hosted by him at his official residence.
