  • The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned its hearing in the Babri Masjid case
  • Kapil Sibal urged the Supreme Court to take up the Babri Masjid case in July 2019

The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned its hearing in the Babri Masjid case to February 8, 2018. However, a statement made by Congress leader and senior lawyer Kapil Sibal on behalf of the Sunni Waqf Board with regards to the case kicked up a political storm. 

During the hearing, Kapil Sibal urged the Supreme Court to take up the Babri Masjid case in July 2019, after the Lok Sabha elections.

“Ram Mandir is a very serious litigation, SC should consider hearing it after July 15, 2019. We all know what’s happening here will have huge ramifications outside & in the polity of this country” 

Debating on Republic TV, Illyas Sarafuddin spoke in support of Kapil Sibal. He said:

"As per the constitution, a lawyer has every right to make his point in Court."

A few minutes later, Republic TV's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami joined the debate and grilled Illyas Sarafuddin for supporting Kapil Sibal. Replying to Arnab, Sarafuddin said:

"Kapil Sibal wants the documents to be verified and cross-examined, all that takes a lot of time"
