Ayodhya dispute: Ample proof of temple ruins at disputed site, contends counsel for Ram Lala

Ayodhya dispute: Ample proof of temple ruins at disputed site, contends counsel for Ram Lala

New Delhi, Aug 14 (UNI) Counsel for Ram Lala Virajman, one of the parties in the Ramjanambhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute, on Wednesday contended in the Supreme Court that various travelogues and sketches of foreign travellers show that they had identified the place in Ayodhya where the public attached a certain divinity.

"We are relying on the various travelogues, sketches of foreign travellers to show that they had identified the place in Ayodhya where the public attached a certain divinity," CS Vaidyanathan told the five-judge Constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.

Mr Vaidyanathan further submitted that there is archaeological evidence to show the existence of temple ruins. If the mosque was built on the ruins of the temple, then Shariat law does not recognise it as a mosque.

He also told the apex court that the claim to the disputed place is based on faith and belief of people and that it cannot be bifurcated or trifurcated.

Mr Vaidyanathan submitted to the apex court that various facets of a valid mosque are absent. The fact that the structure was on ruins of temple at Janmasthan means that it is not a valid mosque as per Shariat law itself.

Mr Vaidyanathan will continue his submissions on Friday.

Today was the sixth day of the daily hearing of the title dispute case.

The other four judges on the bench are Justices S A Bobde, Ashok Bhushan, D Y Chandrachud and S A Nazeer.

On August 6, the Supreme Court had ordered a daily hearing on a day-to-day basis to ensure speedy justice in the case.

The apex court is hearing a batch of petitions challenging the 2010 Allahabad High Court trifurcation of the disputed site at Ayodhya.
