All India Hindu Mahasabha and Hindu Sena file complaint against advocate Rajeev Dhavan for tearing apart Ram Janmabhoomi maps

Hindu Mahasabha's letter to the Bar Council of India mentions that Dhawan's act of tearing apart maps and documents is a clear case of contempt of court and action should be initiated against him.

In a fit of rage and frustration, Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhavan representing the Sunni Waqf Board in the long-drawn-out Ayodhya title dispute yesterday tore down maps and documents of Ram Janmabhoomi(Birthplace of Lord Ram) site presented to him by the All India Hindu Mahasabha counsel Vikas Singh.

Following this incident, All India Hindu Mahasabha lodged a complaint against the lawyer with Bar Council of India.

In a letter signed by spokesperson Pramod Pandit Joshi, the All India Hindu Mahasabha has asked the Bar Council to take appropriate action against Dhavan. The letter specifically mentions that Dhawan’s act of tearing apart maps and documents is a clear case of contempt of court and action should be initiated against him.

Following All India Hindu Mahasabha, Hindu Sena has also joined in to file against a complaint against Dhawan’s frenzied meltdown. In a letter submitted to the Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi, Hindu Sena said, ‘We have learned through media reports that advocate Rajeev Dhavan had shred to pieces maps and documents showing Ram Janmasthan. This act is not only misconduct by an associate but also unbecoming of a senior advocate. The conduct of Dhavan is very serious and he is now undeserving of being an advocate of the Supreme Court.”

Dhawan is facing criticism from several quarters for losing his cool in the Supreme Court and ripping apart the documents and maps of Ram Janmasthan. Aggrieved by Dhawan’s misconduct, a former MP and member of Ramjanmbhoomi Nyas (trust), Ramvilas Vedanti had yesterday claimed that he will be filing an FIR against Dhavan for ‘hurting sentiments’.

On the other hand, senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, following his epic meltdown in Supreme Court on the last day of the hearing on Ram Janmabhoomi case, justified his tearing off the papers and maps stating that he had so after the CJI asked him to.

Speaking on the incident of tearing of the pages in Court in the morning session, he said: “The incident is going viral. But the fact is that I wanted to throw the pages away and the CJI said I may tear them. And I tore them so I’d say it was with the permission of Court.”
