# Sushil Jain went on to say that the revenue records show that Nirmohi Akhara was in possession of the area and it is shown as “Babari Masjid Temple”. “In 1855, Hindus ousted the Muslims from the building. We won the fight. They have to show that they got the possession back. They have shown no evidence. How can they say we only have elementary rights?” Sushil Jain questioned.

“They say since the land has been used for religious purpose as a mosque for time immemorial, it should be accepted as waqf by user. But we ousted them in 1855,” Jain said.

“There are no accounts shown of donations, or maintenance or possession. The only documentation is for grant,” he added.

# Sushil Jain, representing Nirmohi Akhara in the case, said the Muslim side failed to show proof that Babur constructed the mosque at the site of Lord Ram’s birthplace.

“Burden of proof is on them. Look at the documentation shown. Documentation relating to a cash grant of Rs 302 granted as “maafi” to Syed Baqi. Documents relating to village Sehnwa. It’s not related to village Rampur. The building is in Rampur. Documentation is in extremely torn condition, unreadable. The third document relates to the contractor by PWD. According to the High court judgment, these documents have nothing to do with possession or rights over this land,” Jain said.

Sunni waqf board likely to withdraw their suit — not yet withdrawn


The five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India began day-to-day proceedings on August 6 after mediation proceedings failed to find an amicable solution to the dispute.

Fourteen appeals have been filed in the top court against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among the three parties – the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.

Many Hindus believe the land was the birthplace of Lord Ram and a mosque was built there on the ruins of an ancient temple. The 16th century Babri mosque at the spot was razed in December 1992 by right-wing activists. The destruction of the mosque sparked riots in the country.
