New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it would consider hearing a plea filed by a party on behalf of the majority community in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute seeking an early listing of the case.
One of the plaintiffs contended before the Chief Justice of India court that there was no progress in the mediation process to resolve the dispute which dates back centuries when the temple at Lord Ram's birthplace was allegedly demolished to build the Babri Mosque.
After hearing this, the bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi, said, ''We would see and consider to hear the petition.''
The petitioner community submitted that there is not much progress in the court-monitored mediation process; thereby it should give an urgent hearing into the matter.
"We will see and consider to hear your petition," the bench said and assured the petitioner that the matter would be listed for a hearing.
The apex court asked the petitioner to file an application so that it can consider hearing the case keeping in view the fact that the matter is of priority and a hearing is the need of the hour.
