Allahabad HC dismissed plea to offer namaz at disputed Ayodhya site

Sabrangindia 21 Dec 2018

Justices DK Arora and Alok Mathur of the Lucknow bench of the high court passed the order on the petition of Al-Rahman Trust, which had requested the court to give permission to offer namaz at the disputed site.


Allahabad HC
 
Lucknow: The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court rejected a petition seeking permission to offer namaz at the disputed site in Ayodhya on Thursday while imposing a fine of Rs. 5 lakh on the petitioner saying the appeal was filed for "cheap publicity".
 
Justices DK Arora and Alok Mathur of the Lucknow bench of the high court passed the order on the petition of Al-Rahman Trust, which had requested the court to give permission to offer namaz at the disputed site.
 
The court directed District Magistrate Faizabad to realise the fine amount if it is not deposited by the Trust.
 
The Supreme Court had on October 29 adjourned the Ram temple-Babri Masjid land dispute case to January. The court is hearing a batch of petitions challenging a 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict that ordered a three-way division of the land in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, on which the Babri Masjid stood before Hindutva activists demolished it on December 6, 1992.
 
The High Court divided the land equally between the Nirmohi Akhada, the Sunni Wakf Board and the representative for the deity, Ram Lalla, or the infant Ram. The clamour to build a Ram temple at the disputed site is rising in the extreme Hindutva factions.
