Hours after Rajeev Dhavan’s complete meltdown in SC wherein the senior Advocate representing the Muslim parties in the Ram Janambhoomi case tore pictorial maps and papers showing the exact birthplace of Lord Ram, a former MP and member of Ramjanmbhoomi Nyas (trust), Ramvilas Vedanti has said that he will be filing an FIR against Dhavan for ‘hurting sentiments’.

He said that will be registering the FIR against Dhavan in Ayodhya Kotwali at 10 am tomorrow morning.
Today, during the last day of the hearing in the politically sensitive case of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute, Rajeev Dhavan representing the Muslim parties displayed extreme objectional behaviour by tearing copies off maps and papers handed over to him by the Hindu Mahasabha as he strongly opposed the party in the Supreme Court.
Senior advocate Vikas Singh sought to place on record the book ‘Ayodhya Revisited’ by former IPS Kishore Kunal. Senior advocate Singh was representing the Hindu Mahasabha and the book ‘Ayodhya Revisited’ spoke about pre-existence of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. This was when Dhawan had a complete meltdown and it the frenzy he started tearing off papers and maps handed over to him by the Hindu Mahasabha.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday reserved its judgement in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case after hearing arguments from all the concerned parties.
The marathon hearing concluded after forty days, making the Ayodhya hearing as the second-longest in the history of the Supreme court after the landmark hearing in Keshavananda Bharati case which lasted for 68 days.
Reportedly, the Supreme Court has finished hearing all arguments in the Ayodhya case one hour before the set deadline. The Supreme Court has allowed the parties to submit their written notes over the next three days.
The Supreme Court is hearing a total of fourteen appeals filed against the 2010 judgment of Allahabad High Court which ordered that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among three parties – the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
A five-judge Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi had earlier asked for parties to conclude their arguments in the land dispute case to be concluded by October 17. But the court decided to wrap up hearings by 16th October itself. The bench also comprises of Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer, who are hearing appeals against the September 30, 2010, verdict of the Allahabad High Court.
The Supreme Court has been carrying out day-to-day hearing of the case. It is speculated that the Court will deliver the judgement on or before November 17, the day CJI Ranjan Gogoi retires.
