Apex court declines to interfere in Ayodhya, HC to rule on Thursday

The Supreme Court of India has rejected the plea to defer the Ayodhya ruling by the Allahabad High Court, which is now expected to be handed down at 330pm on Thursday 30 September, which has again put states on high alert on high alert fearing potential violence, reported the Times of India and other papers.

The Supreme Court decision follows last week Thursday’s last-minute decision by the apex court to defer the 24 September High Court ruling, following a petition by a retired bureaucrat.

ALMT Legal partner Hitesh Jain said that the verdict would happen “100 per cent” on 30th September at 330pm.

“If Reliance [gas dispute] was big, Ayodhya will be one of the biggest decisions that will be pronounced by the courts in India,” Jain told Legally India, adding that Important issues like title and adverse possession would be examined.

States are now on high alert again for Thursday, following the government last week blocking bulk mobile phone messages and Karnataka declaring a two-day school holiday.

High Court is due to rule on 24 September on who owns the Babri site where a mosque was destroyed in 1992 by Hindu activists claiming the site was the birthplace of Hindu god Ram, which sparked sectarian violence causing 2,000 deaths,

The Hindu has prepared a detailed and fascinating analysis of the case’s legal history.

What do you think the High Court will decide, if anything?
