New Delhi, Sept: The Supreme Court ruling that rejected a plea for referring the Babri Masjid-Ramjanmabhoomi dispute to a larger Constitution Bench is not a setback, a number of Muslim petitioners asserted on Thursday. By a majority 2-1 judgement, the Supreme Court rejected a plea for referring the case to a larger Constitution Bench and referred the case to a three-judge bench to be set up that will begin hearing from October 29. Advocate Zafaryab Jilani, the convenor of the Babri Masjid Action Committee, said the verdict was no setback. “It is not at all a setback. It just means that the trial will start now. The court has clarified that the observations made by a Supreme Court bench in the Ismail Farooqi case of 1994 were made in a particular context and not related to this case. I think that serves the purpose,” Jilani told the media. All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) member Maulana Khalid Rashid Firangimahali echoed him. (IANS)
