Supreme Court to begin final hearing in Ram Janmabhoomi dispute today

The hearing comes seven years after the Allahabad High Court divided the 2.77 acre disputed land in Ayodhya equally between Ram Lalla Virajman, Sunni Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara. The High Court order had been challenged by petitioners, including BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, on the grounds that no prayer had been made to divide the land equally.

The Supreme Court is likely to start hearing appeals in the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid dispute from Tuesday, a day before the 25th anniversary of the demolition of the 16th century mosque by kar sevaks, with no adjournments allowed.
