Ayodhya dispute: Supreme Court dismisses all petitions filed for reconsideration of verdict

The Supreme Court gave its verdict on the Ayodhya issue on November 9 last month, against which many others, including Muslim parties, filed a review petition.

The Supreme Court has dismissed all the petitions filed for reconsideration of the November 9 verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case in Ayodhya.

A five-member Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde dismissed these reconsideration petitions in the Chamber after brief consideration. Several Muslim parties, including Jamiat-e-Ulema and Muslim Personal Law Board, had filed reconsideration petitions against the decision of the Supreme Court in the case.

The Supreme Court had said in its decision that 2.77 acres of disputed land in Ayodhya should be given to the Hindu side and in Ayodhya itself, five acres of land should be given to the mosque. However, some parties involved in the trial did not agree with this and had filed reconsideration petitions against the judgment in the Supreme Court. 

A review petition was filed against the judgment by 18 such parties who were involved in the Ayodhya dispute case. Apart from this, some petitions were also filed on behalf of third parties. Apart from the Muslim side, the All India Hindu Mahasabha had also filed a review petition.
