Students take part in a peace march ahead of the Ayodhya verdict, in Mumbai on Sunday.

The Supreme Court will hear on Tuesday the Ayodhya dispute case, in which by an interim order on September 23, the Allahabad High Court had been restrained from pronouncing the verdict in the four title suits.

A Bench comprising Chief Justice S.H. Kapadia and Justices Aftab Alam and K.S. Radhakrishnan will hear petitioner Ramesh Chandra Tripathi, who wanted a negotiated settlement; the Sunni Central Board of Wakfs, Uttar Pradesh; the All-India Muslim Personal Law Board; Baba Dharamdas; Mohd. Hashim; and the All-India Hindu Maha Sabha pleading for vacating the stay and allowing the High Court to pronounce the verdict.

The Bench will also hear Attorney-General G.E. Vahanvati for the Centre, and other defendants in the connected suits.

Since Justice D.V. Sharma, one of the three judges on the Special Bench of the Allahabad High Court that had reserved the verdict in the title suits, is to retire on October 1, the Supreme Court will have to take a decision on Tuesday whether to extend the interim stay or not.

Mr. Tripathi was aggrieved at the Allahabad High Court order of September 17 refusing to defer the judgment to explore the possibility of an amicable settlement through negotiations between the parties to the dispute. On September 23, while staying the pronouncement of the verdict, the Supreme Court had issued notice to the parties and posted the matter for further hearing on September 28.

In its response, the Wakfs Board said: “The facts which unambiguously establish that a dispute of this nature and background cannot be resolved through mediation/reconciliation/arbitration. With the culmination of 60 years of continuous court proceedings and when judgment was reserved to be pronounced on September 24, an attempt at the last moment was made to put the clock back and to frustrate the entire efforts made by the parties and the court to decide the dispute once and for all.”

Why our our indian government is intensifying a silly matter.
See generally there is no chance to know there matter at all to a school childrens.
Leave them, don't make them to take part in this matter.
If the government wants to create awareness about "AHIMSA" means then there is lot of volunteer organisation is there. Let them stage a rally.

Utter frustration is evident after such a long trial..HIGH COURT has to come to a sustainable remedy,otherwise there is no question of parties going to negotiate at this late hour

I think the high court should be allowed to pronounce its verdict...
It is evident that the out of court settlement has failed to produce any results over the past 60yrs.. People are mature enough to accept the verdict whichever way it goes... The government has also taken various precautionary measures to prevent any communal violence that arise from the verdict. It is high time we proactively move forward to solve the problems facing the nation rather than procrastinating them or not solving them.
