AS the hearing on the title deed of the Ayodhya by India’s Supreme Court is being delayed, GOI has petitioned apex for modification of its March 2003 verdict to restore surplus undisputed land to its rightful owner–Ram Janambhoomi Nyas. A Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court had in 1994 in Ismail Faruqui’s case upheld the acquisition of 67-acre land surrounding the disputed site. The GOI’s plea was filed on Monday .The Constitution Bench hearing the cross-appeals against the September 30, 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict on Ayodhya land dispute scheduled for Tuesday was cancelled in view of unavailability of Justice SA Bobde.The Centre has sought permission to return the 67-acre land–which it had acquired around the 2.77-acre disputed Ram Janambhumi-Babri Masjid site–to its original owners. The Centre said the Nyas is demanding return of excess land acquired in 1993 to its original owners. Meanwhile, the Government is under tremendous pressure by Ram devotees, especially Hindu seers, to adopt ordinance for building long awaited g rand temple at the birth place of Lord Ram.
