The long-awaited verdict on the dispute over the title suit of the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhumi at Ayodhya will be pronounced on September 24 by a Special Bench of the Allahabad High Court.

The Bench of Justices Sudhir Agarwal, S.U. Khan and D.V. Sharma reserved judgment on July 26.

Gopal Singh Visharad, Nirmohi Akhara, the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Waqf Board and Ram Lalla Virajman are the main parties to the title dispute, which has dragged on for the past 60 years.

Though the first suit was filed in a Faizabad court on July 19, 1885 by Mahant Raghubar Das, who sought rights over “Ram Chabootra,” a raised platform in front of the 16th century Babri Masjid at Ayodhya, the title suit has figured in the law courts only since 1950.

After the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992, the Central government acquired 2.77 acres around the “disputed site.”

In all, 87 witnesses belonging to the main parties deposed before the High Court.

Strict security measures have been taken by the Uttar Pradesh Government to prevent any law and order problem that may arise after the verdict.

The State government has sought 450 companies of paramilitary forces from the Centre.

No matter which way the verdict goes the real question is that whether the ruling and opposition parties will rise above the occasion to abide by the law and order or will make full use of volatile situation for their ugly vote bank politics.

High Court is considering three major point here and it would be interesting to see the observations it makes.

One, whether there was a temple at the disputed site, prior to 1538.
Fairly easy to determine if scientific investigation is conducted by
by competent professionals. This is the one that can be easily adjudicated. It is a simple yes or no.

Two, whether the suit filed by the Babri committee in 1961 is barred by limitation.
Subject to interpretation of the laws prevailing at the time of the suit and possibly British / Mogul India???

And the last but not the least, whether Muslims perfected their title through adverse possession.
This is the one more interesting to watch and will have far reaching implications as a precedent. How far back do you go in to establish the perfection of title by adverse possession? The case dates back independent India. What in fact a temple was demolished and another structure was erected under a brutal ruler whose subjects did not have any say and complained ever since? Do the victims lose their rights simply because they were too weak to enforce their rights and the continued occupation grants the aggressor the title via perfection of title due to adverse possession? This is the most critical thing the court has to address.

On the other hand if there was no structure beneath the mosque are parties involved ready to turn the page in the history and move on?
