Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid case will be dealt as a land dispute, says Supreme Court

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday made it clear that it would deal with the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid case as a pure ‘land dispute’. The Apex court also said that it will not hear the case on a day-to-day-basis as 700 poor litigants are waiting for justice.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice S. Abdul Nazeer refused appellants’ plea for day to day hearing, saying “over 700 poor litigants are waiting for justice, we have to hear them”.
