The crucial day-to-day hearing in the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case in the Supreme Court will enter the fifth day on Tuesday with the counsel for the deity, 'Ram Lalla Virajman', recommencing arguments for claim over the entire 2.77 acres of disputed land in Ayodhya.
The hearing before a five-judge Constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, assumes significance following its query on Friday as to whether anyone from the 'Raghuvansha' dynasty still resides in Ayodhya.
We are just wondering if anyone from the 'Raghuvansha' dynasty is still living there the bench, also comprising Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer, had said.
Although senior advocate K Parasaran, appearing for the deity, could not answer the query, BJP lawmaker Diya Kumari, a member of the erstwhile Jaipur royal family, claimed on Sunday that her family has descended from Lord Ram's son Kush.
The court has said where are the descendants of Lord Ram Descendants of Lord Ram are all over the world, including our family who descended from his son Kush, the MP from Rajsamand in Rajasthan said, adding that Ram's descendants are all over the world and the dispute in Ayodhya should be resolved soon.
After such claims from Rajasthan's erstwhile royal family of Mewar as well, state Congress spokesperson Satendra Raghav on Monday also claimed that his family descended from Ram. "The Raghav Rajputs are the real descendants of Ram," he said.
On the fourth day of the hearing, Parasaran had responded to the Supreme Court's query as to how the 'Janmasthanam' can be regarded as a "juristic person" having stakes as a litigant in the case.
The idol is not necessary in the Hinduism for a place to be regarded as a temple, he had said, adding, Hindus do not worship gods in any definite form, rather they worship them as divine incarnation having no form.
