A plea before the Supreme Court which had sought permission to hold puja at the undisputed portion of the 67.7 acres of land making up the Ram temple site at Ayodhya has been dismissed by the apex court, reports The Indian Express.
“You will never let this country remain in peace. There will always be something,” Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi remarked while passing the order.
Also, the bench declined to overturn the fine imposed by the Allahabad High Court on the petitioner. The high court had previously also imposed a fine on a different petitioner who had asked for permission to hold namaz prayers at the site in Ayodhya.
Previously senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had also moved the Supreme Court in February asking for his fundamental right to worship at the Ram Janmabhoomi site to be enforced.
The dispute regarding the site at Ayodhya is currently being resolved through court-ordered mediation between litigants from both sides.
