A Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court is currently hearing the case concerning the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid Ayodhya dispute.
The Bench comprising Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, and Justices SA Bobde, NV Ramana, UU Lalit and DY Chandrachud is hearing the matter titled M Siddiq (D) Thr. Lrs. v. Mahant Suresh Das & Ors. in the Chief Justice’s Court.
A three-judge Bench of the Supreme Court had earlier declined to refer the matter to a larger Bench to reconsider its 1994 judgment in Ismail Faruqui v. Union of India. Two days ago, a notice on the Supreme Court website revealed that the matter would be listed before a Constitution Bench.
