A plea has been made in the top court that the Ayodhya land dispute case need to be referred to larger bench.
The plea in the Supreme Court was made by senior lawyer Rajeev Dhawan who was appearing for the Muslim bodies.
With this the court has fixed April 27 as the next date of hearing in the case.
Dhawan is said to have told the top court that Ayodhya land dispute was far more important issue than polygamy among Muslims.
The special bench of the apex court is seized of a total of 14 appeals filed against the high court judgement delivered in four civil suits.
Earlier, the apex court had dashed the hopes of activists like Shyam Benegal and Teesta Setalvad to intervene in the sensitive Babri Masjid-Ram Temple land dispute case.
The apex court said that only the parties to the original lawsuits would be allowed to put forth their arguments.
The Allahabad High Court had ruled that there be a three-way division of the disputed land – one-third for the Sunni Waqf Board, one-third for the Nirmohi Akhara and one-third to the party for ‘Ram Lalla’.>
