New Delhi, January 4: Supreme Court is scheduled to take up a batch of petitions for hearing in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case today. The matter is listed before a bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice SK Kaul. 


 

The apex court on October 29 had fixed the matter in the first week of January before an appropriate bench, which will decide the schedule of hearing. 

Various Hindutva organizations have been demanding an ordinance on early construction of Ram temple at the disputed site. 
The hearing today assumes importance as Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday suggested any decision on an ordinance on Ram temple in Ayodhya can happen only after the completion of the judicial process.

Earlier, a three-judge bench, by a 2:1 majority, refused to refer to a five-judge constitution bench the issue of reconsideration of the observations in its 1994 judgment that a mosque was not integral to Islam.

The matter had arisen during the hearing of the Ayodhya land dispute. On the 27th of September, the apex court had declined to refer to a five-judge constitution bench the issue of reconsideration of the observations in its 1994 judgment that a mosque was not integral to Islam. The issue had arisen when the three-judge bench was hearing the appeals filed against the Allahabad High Court's verdict.
