  • Five review pleas filed were filed against the apex court's November 9 judgement. One petition was filed by the Muslims parties and one by a group of intellectuals. The Nirmohi Akhara, which was ousted as the sebait, or a caretaker, and instead given a single-member representation in any trust or body which would be set up to build a Ram temple at the site, had also filed a review of the ruling.

    Hindu Mahasabha and a group of intellectuals moved the Supreme Court on Monday seeking review of its verdict in the Ayodhya dispute for disparate reasons.

    The Centre is duty-bound to set up a new trust for the development of Ayodhya and construction of a Ram temple within three months as per the directive of the Supreme Court, Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said.

    According to Google 2019 Year in Search report, netizens in India searched for a variety of topics, seeking information on Article 370, exit poll, black hole and 'Howdy Modi' event.

    Settling the fractious issue that goes back more than a century, the Supreme Court on November 9 backed the construction of a Ram temple by a government trust at the disputed site in Ayodhya and ruled that an alternative five-acre plot must be found for a mosque in the Hindu holy town.

    So far, eight witnesses have deposed against Singh in the court. The agency is lining up four key witnesses for their deposition in court this month. These include the assistant and chief investigating officers of the case. These officers will have to testify the veracity of the statements of witnesses, who had deposed against Singh over his involvement in the Babri Masjid demolition case.

    Four separate fresh review petitions have been filed by Maulana Mufti Hasbullah, Mohd Umar, Maulana Mahfoozur Rehman and Mishbahuddin, who were party to the earlier litigation.

    In the early hours of the day, life went on as normal in different parts of the city with school children and morning walkers taking to the streets and shops and businesses opening at their usual time. This year the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has decided against observing 'Shaurya Diwas'.

    The commission's report, tabled in the Gujarat Assembly on Wednesday by BJP leader Pradeepsinh Jadeja, gave a clean chit to then chief minister Narendra Modi-led state government for the worst riots in the history of the state where over 1,000 people, mainly of minority community, were killed.

    "I have been informed that Mr Madani has indicated that I was removed from the case because I was unwell. This is total nonsense. He has a right to instruct his lawyer AOR Ejaz Maqbool to sack me which he did on instructions. But the reason being floated is malicious and untrue," senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan added on the social networking site.

    Advocate Rajeev Dhavan who represented the Sunni Waqf Board and other Muslim parties in the Ayodhya title dispute case on Tuesday claimed th...

    “I feel the people who want to go for a review are doing this just to do politics and remain in the media spotlight. They are not exercising a legal right but pursuing a personal agenda,” Iqbal Ansari, whose later father Mohd Hashim Ansari was one of the oldest litigants, told ET from Ayodhya.
