Aung San Suu Kyi set to make history in Hague genocide case

The state of Gambia, acting on behalf of the 57-nation Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, will ask ICJ to take emergency measures to halt Myanmar's "ongoing genocidal actions". Legal experts said Suu Kyi would be one of the first national leaders to personally address the tribunal since it was set up in 1946 after World War II to rule in disputes between countries.

  • The move to amend the Citizenship Act, 1955, is a humanitarian obligation that the country has to fulfil to address the Partition’s fallout, BJP general secretary Ram Madhav has said.

    "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.

    “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.

    ​​​VHP joint general secretary Surendra Jain accused the Muslim parties of ‘never staying true to their word’ in the case, while the chief of the Nirmohi Akhara in Ayodhya, Mahant Dinendra Das, and chief priest of the Ram Janmabhoomi Temple Satyendra Das termed it a ‘ploy to disturb communal harmony’ in India.

    The All India Muslim Personal Law Board on Sunday asserted that 99 per cent of Muslims in the country want a review of the unanimous Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya dispute.

    The US House of Representatives on Tuesday passed the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act, which among other things, proposes that America redirects resources to address the mass internment of over 1,000,000 Uyghurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities in China.

    The petition — filed through Maulana Syed Ashhad Rashidi, the legal heir of the original plaintiff in the case — argued that the court had effectively granted a mandamus (judicial writ) to destroy the Babri Masjid and sought an immediate stay on the handover of the land.

    The spiritual leader, who was part of the Supreme Court-appointed mediation panel in the Ayodhya case, said the matter would have been solved long back, had one side not been insistent on building a mosque at the disputed site. He hailed the apex court verdict as a "very good decision to resolve the long-standing dispute".

    The minority panel chief said filing the review petition would send a message to the Hindus that they were trying to put roadblocks in the way of building the Ram temple. He also urged the Muslim side to accept the five-acre alternative land to be given for a mosque, saying they would be respecting the judiciary by doing so.

    "The board is firm on its decision to file a review petition in the Supreme Court and we have time till December 9 for doing so," All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) secretary Zafaryab Jilani said in a press conference. "Exercising our constitutional right, we are going to file a review petition in the Babri Masjid case during the first week of December."

    Influential Muslim voices were specially invited or consulted before the decision was taken. While four voices were strictly against filing of the review, everyone voted against the principle of accepting the land.
