Ayodhya (Uttar Pradesh) [India],Nov 20 (ANI): In a big push for the construction of a Ram Temple in Ayodhya, a litigant in the Babri Masjid case, Mohammad Iqbal Ansari, has said that he does not have any objection to an ordinance for the construction of the temple.
"We have no objection if an ordinance is brought for the construction of Ram Mandir. If bringing an ordinance will be good for the country, bring it. We are law-abiding citizens, we will obey every law," he told ANI.
Ansari's remark comes amidst demands for urgent pronouncement of a decision in the case by a section, including Hindu seers in Ayodhya.
On October 29, the Supreme Court had adjourned the title suit till January 2019 to fix the date of hearing in the matter. The top court adjourned the matter which challenged the Allahabad High Court ruling of 2010.
The Court in its 2010 verdict had suggested a division of the disputed land in Ayodhya into three parts- one for each of the parties - the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
The Babri Masjid, built by Mughal emperor Babur in Ayodhya in 1528, was on December 6, 1992, razed to the ground allegedly by Hindu activists, claiming that the mosque was constructed after demolishing a Ram Temple that originally stood there. (ANI)
