Supreme Court to hear Ayodhya land dispute case today

Five-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court on Thursday said there will be no hearing in the case for the day, only the date and schedule will be decided. The new bench will be constituted on January 29. Further, Justice UU Lalit recused himself from hearing the case after advocate Rajeev Dhavan pointed out that Justice Lalit had appeared for Kalyan Singh in the matter, which means a new judge will be appointed for the case.

Various Hindutva organisations have been demanding an ordinance on early construction of Ram temple at the disputed site.

In a recent development, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had suggested that any decision on an ordinance on Ram temple in Ayodhya can happen only after the completion of the judicial process.

"Let the judicial process take its own course. Don't weigh it in political terms. Let the judicial process be over. After the judicial process is over, whatever be our responsibility as government, we are ready to make all efforts," the prime minister had said during an interview.
