Ay­o­d­hya row

The Hitavada - - THE OPINION PAGE -

Sir,

With Ay­o­d­hya hear­ing de­ferred by Supreme Court upto Jan­uary 29, it in­di­cates that the fi­nal rul­ing is un­likely be­fore polls. The case orig­i­nally started in 1950 in Faiz­abad court, then trans­ferred to Al­la­habad High Court which gave ver­dict in Septem­ber 2010 and is now in SC pend­ing for fi­nal ver­dict. A very long jour­ney. Peo­ple thought it would be fi­nalised be­fore the LS polls, tak­ing into ac­count the mount­ing pres­sure from VHP, RSS, Ma­hant lobby, Shiv Sena and also some BJP lead­ers.

How­ever, Prime Min­is­ter Mr. Modi cat­e­gor­i­cally stated that noth­ing sort of a leg­is­la­tion or or­di­nance would take place as the case is be­fore SC. Gov­ern­ment will­ing to wait for its ver­dict. With this devel­op­ment, due to one Jus­tice Lalit with­draw­ing him­self from the panel, it seems the ver­dict is bound to be de­layed for some more days. Let us hope it is am­i­ca­bly and legally set­tled very soon.
