Rare that a five-member Bench of SC has remained unanimous on a major case: Experts

New Delhi, Nov 9 (UNI) The country seemed to have heaved a sigh of relief on Saturday as the first twelve hours have passed off peacefully with general cautioning and restrains from all quarters since the delivery of the historic judgement on Ayodhya land dispute.

Legal experts also it is rare that in a five judges bench of the Supreme Court, there is a complete 'unanimity' on all vital points and more importantly the verdict has able to resolve India's longest running dispute for centuries.

"This judgment has resolved the longest running legal dispute of India....It is very rare that in a five judges bench of the Supreme Court, there is a complete unanimity on all vital points," counsel Aman Sinha said.

Mr Sinha represented All India Arya Samaj in the litigation.

"All five Judges need to be congratulated and commended for having adjudicated a dispute which was the oldest legal dispute," said Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who had represented the Centre and the Uttar Pradesh government in the title dispute.

The first recorded incidents of communal violence related to Ayodhya dispute was in 1853 and first court case perhaps came in 1859. In 1885, Nirmohi Akhara in a Suit No. 61/280 of 1885 filed in the Court of the Faizabad Sub Judge against the Secretary of State for India then based in London.

However, Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board's Zafaryab Jilani said he was "dissatisfied" with the verdict and added - "The verdict has lot of contradictions"," senior advocate Jilani said.
