On August 5, while all attention will be on Ayodhya with the first bricks for the construction of the Ram temple to be laid, a special CBI court will continue hearing on the Babri Masjid demolition case. Some of the leading players of the temple movement may be present in Ayodhya on the day but, as accused in the demolition case, their fate will soon be decided by the court.
With one case reaching finality in the apex court, the focus has shifted to the other case. The case of demolition, which began after December 6, 1992. The Supreme Court in its title suit judgement had also observed that the demolition of the mosque was a criminal act.
Last year, on November 9, a Supreme Court bench headed by the then Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi, had brought to an end the long-standing title suit over the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute. In a unanimous verdict, the bench ruled in favour of the Hindu litigants and ordered that the disputed 2.77 acres of land be handed over to a trust to be set up by the Centre for construction of a temple.
