Ayodhya dispute: SC to hear appeals from December 5

The next date of hearing the batch of pleas challenging the Allahabad High Court's order in Ayodhya land dispute case is fixed as December 5. An earlier apex court order had ordered that the papers be translated and digitised because it proceeds with its final hearing in the matter.

The apex court fixed the matter for further hearing on December 5.

It has also been put forward by the top court that the parties that have participated to translate the evidence into English within 12 weeks exhibit of paper work.

At this point, the court asked the warring parties what they were doing the past seven years the appeals against the September 2010 Allahabad High Court judgement in the title dispute were pending in the Supreme Court.

Dow slips 100 points as tensions with N.Korea escalate
The MSCI World index slipped 0.1 percent, extending Thursday's 1.1 percent drop, its biggest one-day slide since May 17, as U.S. Late in the afternoon, Trump told reporters that his "fire and fury" warning to North Korea may not have been tough enough.

"What's the hurry? Service (of notice) is not complete". While the minority community appellants were represented by senior advocates Kapil Sibal, Rajeev Dhavan and Anoop George Chaudhari, Nirmohi Akhara was present through senior advocate Sushil Jain. "I know what documents I have to rely on and I will get them translated", Mehta said.

There were near acrimonious scenes during the hearing as several advocates attempted to speak simultaneously and commented on each other.

Countering the prevalent perception that the mosque was built by Mughal emperor Babur, the board said it was actually constructed by his minister Abdul Mir Baqi, a Shia Muslim, out of his own funds. It also supported construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site where a makeshift temple exits at present. The affidavit, filed by Syed Waseem Rizvi, chairman of Uttar Pradesh Shia Central Waqf Board, disputed the claim of Sunni Waqf Board, saying the Babri Masjid site was its property and only it was entitled to hold negotiations for an amicable settlement of the dispute. "Shia Board, having the jurisdiction and authority of superintendence over Shia Waqf, has come out with an appeal to this Court that in lieu of the one-third share of the land, they will be given land elsewhere for the Mosque".

Interestingly, the Special Leave Petition - which challenged a 1946 decision of the Faizabad Civil Court - said the Babri Masjid demolished by Hindu Karsevaks in 1992 was built by demolishing a Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. But the parties to the dispute could not agree to the suggestion.
