The Akhil Bharatiya India Hindu Mahasabha has filed a caveat in the Supreme Court to prevent opponents in the Babri Masjid dispute from obtaining exparte relief without its knowledge.
he caveat will ensure that no interim order is passed by the court without hearing the Mahasabha, which was a party to the case before the Allahabad High Court.
Generally, a party winning a case files a caveat before an appellate court apprehending an appeal by the aggrieved party. The Mahasabha also plans to file an appeal against the high court order on the title suits pertaining to the Babri Masjid at Ayodhya.
The Mahasabha president Swami Chakrapani said he will also file an appeal against the high court order. The caveat was filed to ensure that no order was passed in the meantime without hearing them.
Chakrapani said he wanted the matter to be settled by the Supreme Court. “The Muslims should give up their claim to the
land they have received to enable us to build a temple on the site,” he said. The high court had on September 30 held that since no party could prove a clear title to the property, it had to be shared equally by the Sunni Waqf Board, Ram Lalla and Nirmohi Akhara.
Though all three parties were to get one third each, the court ruled that the portion with the makeshift temple (constructed after the demolition of the Babri mosque in 1992) should go to the deity too.
The high court had stated that according to belief, Lord Ram was born at the site below the central dome of the Babri Masjid where the makeshift temple stood.
The court had also said that the structure demolished in 1992 was a mosque. The judgment has left the ground open for another round of legal battle before the apex court.
With no clear victory to either of the parties, all three had been expected to approach the Supreme Court against the high court judgment.
