The Supreme court on Wednesday concluded the hearing on the Ayodhya case. This politically sensitive case is a land dispute between Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid.

The hearing which was scheduled to end on October 18 was rescheduled to October 17, and the court is expected to announce a final verdict on the Ayodhya case before the Chief Justice leaves office on November 17.

The demolition of a mosque at Ayodhya which is believed by many Hindus to be the birthplace of Lord Ram sparked a riot in December 1992. They believed that the mosque was built on the ruins of an ancient temple. The destruction of the mosque sparked riots in the country. This resulted in both parties filing the Ayodhya case.

The five-judge bench has been headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and other members Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan, and SA Nazeer allowed three weeks to both parties to provide a narrowed down report of the issue that the court needs to adjudicate. However, Chief Justice Gogoi said “We will rise by 5 pm. Enough is enough,” after a lawyer asked the court for more time for arguments. October 17th will be the 40th consecutive day of hearing the issue.
