Ayodhya dispute: On the SC’s decision of the Modi government, the Congress asked- Why exactly just two months before Lok Sabha elections?
- New Delhi: Just before the Lok Sabha election, the Ram Temple in Ayodhya is in the headlines. The Babri Masjid dispute is in the spotlight. The Sant Samaj, Hindutva organization, VHP, RSS and Shivsena are demanding law from the Modi government. Meanwhile, the central government has taken such a step which the opposition parties have reacted strongly. The government has appealed to the Supreme Court that it wants to return the land surrounding the disputed land in Ayodhya to its original owners. Therefore, the court should withdraw its order to maintain status quo on the whole ground.
The government has said in its petition that the ground that sits in Allahabad High Court and now pending in the Supreme Court, it is only 0.3 acres. But the court has ordered a total of 67.7 acres of land to maintain the status quo. The entire land was acquired by the Central Government in 1993. Now the government wants to return the disputed 0.3 acres and return the rest of its original owners. The courts give it permission.
Congress has raised questions on this move of the government. Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi asked, “How did the government suddenly wake up after being asleep for 16 years, just two months before the Lok Sabha election?”

Questioning the government’s destiny, Singhvi cited the 2003 judgment of the court, under which the status quo on the entire land, including the undisputed land, will remain till the final decision comes in the whole matter. He said, “The Supreme Court’s decision is absolutely clear, but before the elections, there is a question arising on the government’s move to bring changes in that decision.”
Actually, in the judgment of the Supreme Court in Aslam Bhure versus Indian Government case in 2003, it was believed that it is necessary to maintain the status quo on the whole land. So that the decision of the land in which the dispute of the disputed land came in, does not make it difficult to reach that place. That is not to say that the side which eventually receives the land, can not reach the ground due to the fact that it has been constructed around it.
The Government argues that it is wrong to stop the entire land due to this only. The government has said that it is ready to leave the place to give way to the disputed land. Apart from this, the rest of the land should be returned to its original owners.
How much is Ayodhya’s disputed and unnatural land, and why is the dispute happening?
If the Supreme Court accepts the request of the government then it will be possible to return the non-disputed land to its original owners. In such a situation, 67.4 acres of land will be returned to its original owners, out of which 42 acres of Ram Janmabhoomi Trust will be given. Apart from this, the rest of the land is mostly of Hindu parties. The direct impact of returning land will be that the construction of the temple will start in the area related to the disputed area. If it is understood in the meanings then at the place of the proposed temple’s birth place, i.e. where the claim of birth of Lord Rama is made or where the disputed structure of Babri Masjid was present before December 6, 1992, except for the temple Will be built.
