Ayodhya row: SC grants three months for translating historic documents

Ayodhya row: SC grants three months for translating historic documents

The top court also directed contesting parties to translate their historical documents in English within 12 weeks. The board told Supreme Court that the documents are in 5 different languages and require time to be translated.

Filing an affidavit, the Shia Waqf Board on Tuesday said a mosque can be built in a Muslim-dominated area maintaining a reasonable distance from Lord Ram's birthplace in Ayodhya. "Maybe that Babar ordered Abdul Mir Baqi to build mosque, Mir Baqi (Shia) chose the site and having demolished the temple got the mosque built and dedicated it to the God, thereby creating a Shia Wakf".

Their stand was strongly opposed by the counsel for Lord Ram Lalla and the UP government which said that nearly seven years have passed since the judgement of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court and the contesting parties should have completed the translation work earlier. He also wanted to be made a party in the case, citing his fundamental right to worship at the site.

The Uttar Pradesh Government agreed to take up the translation work after the Bench told senior counsel Tushar Mehta and the state's Advocate-General Raghavendra Pratap Singh that it has to be done to expedite the hearing.

The Shia Waqf Board contended that the Sunni Waqf Board has no stake in the case since the mosque was Shia property.

While the bench was considering a framework completion the pleadings to commence the final hearing, Sibal stressed on following of the stipulated procedure by asking it not to circumvent the process.

Incumbent CJI JS Khehar constituted the special bench after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy approached the apex court on July 21 to seek an early hearing of the civil dispute between Hindu and Muslim organisations over ownership of the Ram temple-Babri Masjid land.

In 2010, the Allahabad High Court issued its judgement in the Ayodhya land dispute case, dividing the area of 2.77 acres among three parties - the Sunni Waqf board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
