Meerut (UP) – I was under great pressure to delay the hearing in the case of Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya. There was a great pressure from within home and also from outside. I was told to not to deliver judgement until I retire.  Retried Justice Sudhir Agarwal of Allahabad High Court shockingly revealed this and said that, “Had the judgment not been delivered on 30th September, 2010 in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case, there would not have been any judgement in this matter for the next 200 years”. He was addressing a programme here.

1. Justice Aggarwal was part of a 3-judge Bench in Ayodhya’s Ram Janmabhoomi case. Apart from him, Justice S U Khan and DV Sharma were in the Bench. Sudhir Agarwal retired on 23rd April 2020.

2. In the year 2010, the Allahabad High Court, while giving its verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi case, had said that the 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya should be divided equally between the Sunni Waqf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and Hindu Mahasabha, representative of ‘Ram Lalla’. In short, it was said in the decision that Hindus will dominate two-thirds of the area.

3. All the three parties had rejected it. Further, in November 2019, the Supreme Court ordered that ‘Shriram Mandir will be built in the entire area’, and also said that ‘5 acres of land from another place should be given to Muslims for building a mosque’.
