You know the issue is too complex to solve when even the Supreme Court of India is trying not to face it.
The court adjourned the case of Babri Masjid-Ram Janmbhoomi land dispute to January 29. The court adjourned it after one of the sitting judges on the Constitution bench rescued himself from the case.
Justice UU Lalit took a step back from the case citing that Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhvan has pointed out that Lalit has already appeared as a counsel in another Ram Temple case. So, it would be inappropriate to include him in the hearing of a second case on the same issue.
Before this adjourning, it was Justice Ranjan Gogoi who adjourned the case and said that it will not be heard on Thursday. He cited that the court would only fix the schedule to hear a batch of petitions related to the matter.
The bench that was supposed to hear the case today constituted Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, Justices NV Ramana, UU Lalit, SA Bobde, and DY Chandrachud. Now the constitution bench will be reconstituted after Justice UU Lalit has opted out himself.
Dhawan, regarding justice Lalit opting himself out said, “I am just bringing it to your lordship's notice. We don't have any objection to him hearing the matter. It is entirely up to your lordships."
SC adjourns the matter to Jan 29. Justice Lalit recuses from bench following the submission of Sr Ad Rajeev Dhawan that he had appeared for Kalyan Singh in a contempt matter related to #BabriCase#Ayodhya#AyodhyaHearing
