Press Statement Of Dr Subramanian @Swamy39 on Mediation Order Of SC Today
PRESS STATEMENT OF DR SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY ON THE SUPREME COURT ORDER ON APPOINTMENT OF THREE MEMBER MEDIATION PANEL
“The Supreme Court set up 3 eminent persons mediation committee is welcome. But the Committee will have to first map the problem within the space determined by the parameters so far set by Supreme Court starting from the 1994 Constitutional Bench judgment and ending with the judgment of the three judge bench judgment of Sept 27, 2018.
In particular the parameters are 1. Masjid is not an essential part of Islamic theology and hence it can be shifted or demolished by government. 2. Worshipping in a Temple built on faith that it is on the birth place of Sri Rama is fundamental right under the Constitution. Such a temple cannot be shifted.
3. A claim by a Suit to the title of the property is just an ordinary right and is superseded or overpowered by a fundamental right to the same property. Hence the Hindus’ right to re-building the demolished temple is guaranteed by the Constitution.
4. Union Government in 1993 nationalised the entire 67.07 acres including the 0.313 acre disputed land. Supreme Court cannot question that. But title holders are entitled to compensation including alternative sites from government
Hence only solution is Ram Temple in Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi and masjid in Ambedkar or Lucknow districts where there is a Muslim population”
