You Will Not Let This Country Live in Peace: CJI Gogoi Dismisses Plea to Perform Pooja At Undisputed Ayodhya Site
The Brahmin Sansad in its petition wrote, “The deities in the said temples are snoozing due to lack of any religious activity."
“You will not let this country live in peace.”
Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi made this remark while dismissing an appeal filed by Pandit Amar Nath Mishra, chairman of the Brahmin Sansad, against an Allahabad High Court order denying him permission to carry out religious activities in nine old temples housing situated on the undisputed acquired land adjacent to the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi complex.
Per a report in The Leaflet, a two-judge Supreme Court bench comprising Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna heard and dismissed the appeal.
The report further added that the apex court also refused to waive off costs of Rs 5 lakh imposed by the division bench of the Allahabad High Court on the petitioner.
The Brahmin Sansad in its petition wrote, “The deities in the said temples are snoozing due to lack of any religious activity,” adding that despite “a rightist Hindu party” in power at the Centre and the state of Uttar Pradesh, “they were turning a blind eye to the initiation of religious activity in 16 ancient temples situated on the acquired but undisputed land.”
