The Supreme Court Judges who delivered the historic verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi case in 2019 have also been invited to participate in the Pran Pratishtha ceremony of the Ram Mandir (Temple) in Ayodhya on January 22.
A bench comprising former Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, former CJI SA Bobde, current Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, and former Supreme Court judges Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer delivered a landmark verdict in favour of the construction of a Ram temple by a trust at the disputed site.
Over 50 legal experts, comprising former chief justices, judges, and prominent lawyers, have been invited to attend the Ram Temple inauguration ceremony.
Notable invitees include Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and former Attorney General KK Venugopal.
It is noteworthy that on November 9, 2019, the final verdict on the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid dispute was delivered. The Supreme Court stated in its judgment that the disputed land of 2.77 acres belongs to the birthplace of Ram Lalla.
The court decided to hand over this land to the trust later formed by the Indian government. The court also directed the government to allocate a separate 5-acre plot to the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board for the construction of a mosque.
Preparations are in full swing for the grand 'Pran Pratishtha' ceremony of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya on January 22. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to be the chief guest at the event, signifying the inauguration of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
More than 7,000 people, including politicians, figures from the film and sports industry, and saints, are expected to attend the ceremony as per the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust.
