Sacked from Ayodhya case, says Muslim parties' lawyer Rajeev Dhavan

"I have been informed that Mr Madani has indicated that I was removed from the case because I was unwell. This is total nonsense. He has a right to instruct his lawyer AOR Ejaz Maqbool to sack me which he did on instructions. But the reason being floated is malicious and untrue," senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan added on the social networking site.

  • Asked how he envisages the proposed Ram temple to be, Ravi Shankar said, "Which will bring peace in the country and establish brotherhood between both the communities. Work has started towards the realisation of the dream the country harboured for a long time of having a grand Ram temple."

    Former president of Vishva Hindu Parishad Pravin Togadia welcomed Supreme Court verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case in which the apex court bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi passed the construction of Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya and alloting a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.

    As the Supreme Court granted the entire disputed land in Ayodhya to deity Ram Lalla, here is the chronology of events that led to the judgement.

    The Uttar Pradesh Shia Central Waqf Board Wednesday said it would ask the government to give it the five-acre plot that the Supreme Court said should be allotted for building a mosque, if the the Sunni board rejects the offer.

    After the apex court's verdict on claering way for Ram mandir at the site in Ayodhya, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath plans to deliver several projects revolving around Ram Lalla's birth place including an ‘Eye Theme Park’, Shabri garden, Ashok Vatika and international museum by 2023.

    BJP Chief Amit Shah accused the Congress of stalling Ayodhya verdict and delaying the abrogation Article 370 that could solve the Kashmir problem earlier. In addressing the campaign ahead of Jharkhand elections, he added that the Centre has framed a defence policy that has protected the borders and freed the country of terrorism.

    The Vishva Hindu Parishad is set to felicitate the entire legal team that fought for Ayodhya case in the court that ultimately won themvictory to build Ram Lalla temple at the disputed site. The team was led by senior Supreme Court lawyer K. Parasaran. The VHP has also invited lawyers who fought the case in the high court and lower court.

    The apex court said Janma Sakhies, which have been brought on record contains a description of visit of Guru Nanak Devji to Ayodhya, where he had darshan of birthplace of Lord Ram. SC said there is no material to identify the exact place of Ram Janmabhoomi but the visit of Guru Nanak to Ayodhya depicted that pilgrims were visiting there even before 1528 A.D.

    In an unanimous verdict, the Supreme Court on Saturday paved the way for the construction of a Ram temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya, and directed the Centre to allot an alternative 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a new mosque at a "prominent" place in the holy town in Uttar Pradesh.

    A general advisory has been sent to all states and UTs asking them to deploy adequate security personnel in all sensitive places and ensure that no untoward incident takes place anywhere in the country, a home ministry official said. MHA has rushed 40 companies of paramilitary forces to UP to assist the state government in maintaining law and order.

    Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has given its nod to proceed with a review petition challenging the Supreme Court verdict.

    Members of the Nyas have since 1991 been running a workshop in Ayodhya's Karsewakpuram where craftsmen have carved stones and pillars to be used to build the temple. As per Nyas’ plan, the final structure will be 268 ft long, 140 ft wide and 128 ft high, and have 212 pillars.
