Supreme Court reserves judgment in Ayodhya case

The Supreme Court on Wednesday reserved its judgment in the Ayodhya case after arguments from both the sides concluded.

The Ayodhya case hearing went on for 40 days. The court has directed both the disputing parties to submit their written submissions and moulding of reliefs within three days.

Things got heated up during the hearing, drawing criticism from Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.

Rajeev Dhavan, who represented the Muslim parties tore up a pictorial map depicting the exact birth place of Lord Ram during the hearing. Dhavan was objecting to senior advocate Vikas Singh's reference to the map to show the deity's exact birth place.

Vikas was representing the All India Hindu Mahasabha.

Dhavan had asked the bench what he should do with the map, to which the bench replied that he can shred it to pieces.

"The CJI said I could shred the papers and I just followed the order," Dhavan had said.
