AYODHYA LAND DISPUTE: SC DECLINES TO REVISIT ITS 1994 JUDGMENT AND REFER IT TO LARGER BENCH

The Supreme Court on September 27, 2018 declined to refer the 1994 Ismail Farooqui judgment that mosques are not integral to Islam to a larger constitution bench. In the majority verdict, the apex court bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said that the present case on Ayodhya land dispute shall be decided on its own facts and the Ismail Farooqui judgment would have no impact on it. Justice Ashok Bhushan, who read out the majority judgment on behalf of himself and the CJI, said that the court has to find out the context in which the five-judge had delivered the 1994 judgment.
