Will pass or­der as per lim­its of law: SC on tem­ple row

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City -

Find a so­lu­tion and come back to us. We are not averse to any so­lu­tion. We re­spect the sen­ti­ment of ev­ery­one on earth. Come up with some so­lu­tion and we will pass an or­der,” the bench said, post­ing the mat­ter for Oc­to­ber 18.

Se­nior ad­vo­cates Vikas Singh, Ajit Sinha and PS Narasimha told the bench that wor­ship­ping on for­est land was not an alien con­cept and some peo­ple even wor­ship the for­est it­self. They said the tem­ple could be con­structed on the same site but the bench said that it will pass an or­der per­mis­si­ble within the law.

In its April or­der, the SC has said, “We are not in­clined to in­ter­fere with the im­pugned or­der passed by the high court. The spe­cial leave pe­ti­tion is, ac­cord­ingly, dis­missed. How­ever, it is or­dered that the area shall be va­cated within two months. In case it is not va­cated within the stip­u­lated time, it will be treated as vi­o­la­tion of the or­der passed by this court. Let the par­ties re­port com­pli­ance im­me­di­ately af­ter two months.”

The apex court had ex­pressed con­cern over peo­ple giv­ing a po­lit­i­cal an­gle to its ver­dict when politi­cians and Dalit ac­tivists started as­sem­bling in Delhi to stage protests. It had then di­rected the Delhi, Haryana and Pun­jab gov­ern­ments to take steps to main­tain law and or­der.
