It is to be mentioned here that a review petition was filed on Monday in the Supreme Court against its ruling that pronounced construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya.

The petition filed by Maulana Syed Ashhad Rashidi, a legal heir of original Ayodhya land dispute litigant. The petition said complete justice can be done in the case by ordering the Centre and the Uttar Pradesh government to rebuild the Babri Masjid.

It is to be mentioned here that the SC verdict in November ordered a 5-acre plot be given to the Sunni Board by the government.
