Distinctive features of a 10th century temple beneath the Babri Mosque site: Senior lawyer CS Vaidyanathan tells five-judge bench

CS Vaidyanathan briefed the five-bench Constitution bench about the ASI report, which concludes that Babri Masjid is built on the ruins of the Ram Mandir. The council also submitted the ASI report before the bench comprising Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi, and Justices S Abdul Nazeer, DY Chandrachud, SA Bobde, and Ashok Bhushan. 

On the seventh day of the day to day hearing in the sensitive Ram Janam Bhumi dispute case, senior lawyer CS Vaidyanathan, appearing for Ram Lalla Virajman, one of the parties in the case told the Supreme Court that Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) had found ‘distinctive features of a 10th century temple beneath the Babri Mosque site.’

Vaidyanathan briefed the five-bench Constitution bench about the ASI report, which concludes that Babri Masjid is built on the ruins of the Ram Mandir. The council also submitted the ASI report before the bench comprising Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi, and Justices S Abdul Nazeer, DY Chandrachud, SA Bobde, and Ashok Bhushan.

“The archeological evidence, scriptures, and other memorabilia hinted that there are distinctive features found associated with the temples of north India,” he added. He also submitted various pictures of deities found on the pillars of the disputed site in Ayodhya with the court.

“The court commissioner had inspected the disputed site on April 16, 1950, and his report describes the presence of pillars with images of Lord Shiva, said the lawyer to SC,” he said and added, “These images of deities on pillars of the structure are not found in mosques and found in temples.”

Meanwhile, Rajender Singh, who claims to be the descendant of Lord Ram and wanted to be a party to this case, has also filed a petition before the apex court.

According to Vishnu Jain, the lawyer for Hindu Mahasabha, Vaidyanathan tried to establish before the court that a huge temple existed at the site of the demolished Babri Masjid. Jain also suggested that several photographs and evidences submitted before the court corroborate the ASI report proving that a temple existed on the disputed site.

In the wake of today’s inconclusive argument, it would continue on Monday where Vaidyanathan will argue to prove that a temple did, in fact, exist at the disputed land in Ayodhya.

Earlier, on August 8, the five-bench judge headed by CJI Gogoi had called for a five day hearing in the Ayodhya Ram Janambhoomi – from Monday to Friday.

The apex court is hearing the case against the appeal of the Allahabad High Court case of September 30, 2010.
