The Supreme Court now will commence hearing of the much awaited Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masid title dispute on January 29. The Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi has reconstituted the five-member bench, headed by him, after Justice UU Lalit recused himself on the first day of the hearing, earlier this month.
CJI Ranjan Gogoi has added Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice Abdul Nazeer in the bench. Hearing in this politically case. Earlier, Justice UU Lalit bowed out after an SC order of 1997 showed that he had appeared in a case related to the Ayodhya suit.
So now the bench will consist of CJI, Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer.
Earlier some of the religious organisations had expressed frustration after the hearing of the case was delayed post recusal of the SC judge. Many Hindu groups and some political parties have demanded Centre to bring Ordinance on Ayodhya.
However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made it clear that for now the government is waiting for the case to be heard in the apex court.
