Ruchika molestation case: Supreme Court to hear Rathore''s plea


New Delhi, Oct 1 (ANI): The Supreme Court will on Friday hear an appeal filed by former Haryana Director General of Police SPS Rathore challenging his conviction and 18-month sentence in the Ruchika Girhotra molestation case.
A bench of Justices P Sathasivam and B S Chauhan will also take up the plea moved by Rathore for his release either on bail or on parole pending disposal of his appeal by the apex court.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court had on September 1 dismissed Rathore''s appeal, saying his conduct as a top official was "shameful".
The sessions court had earlier enhanced his six-month imprisonment awarded by a trial court in December last year to 18 months in jail on an appeal by CBI and Ruchika''s family.
Ruchika, a budding tennis player, had committed suicide three years after being molested by Rathore on August 12, 1990. 
On August 12, 1990, the then Haryana Inspector General of Police (IGP) S.P.S. Rathore, also the Haryana Lawn Tennis Association president, had molested 14-year-old Ruchika in his office room. (ANI)

Allahabad High Court verdict on Ayodhya title suits out


The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has dismissed the petition of the Sunni Waqf Board and said that the disputed site was the birth of Lord Ram and holds immense importance for Hindus. Bringing to an end the suspense over the 60-year-old Ramjanmbhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit case, the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court on Thursday pronounced its verdict. The 2.7 acre area in Ayodhya has been divided into three parts. One area would go to the Nirmohi Akhara, one to Hindus and third to Muslims’ Waqf Board. Sixty years after it first went to court, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has pronounced judgment in the Ayodhya title suit. The three-judge bench has ruled in a majority judgement 2:1, that one-third part of the disputed land will go to the Sunni Waqf Board, one-third to the Nirmohi Akhara and one-third to the party for 'Ram Lalla'. The High Court judgment says the portion below the central dome under which the idols of Ram and other Gods are placed belongs to would be allotted to Hindus. The Nirmohi Akhara would get the Ram Chabutra and Sita Rasoi. The inner courtyard belongs to both communities, it says. The judgement provides that division of the land should begin in three months. The judgement observes that the building was constructed after demolishing a temple and that the Ramjanmbhoomi was not Waqf land. It also observes that the building was not used by Muslims to offer prayers. The court dismissed the suit filed by the Sunni Waqf Board. After judgement was pronounced a little after 4 pm, litigants emerged from the courtroom with copies and there was chaos outside the Lucknow court. The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court comprising Justice S U Khan, Justice Sudhir Agarwal and Justice D V Sharma, delivered the judgement. The parties have three months to appeal against the verdict.
The dispute before the court was whether the 2.7 acres of disputed land on which the Babri Masjid stood before it was demolished on December 6, 1992, belongs to the Sunni Central Waqf Board or to the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha. It has been a protracted legal battle, and people across the country have spoken in one voice on the need to maintain peace and harmony irrespective of the verdict. The hearing on the issue before the court started in early this year and the verdict came after hearing the versions of several hundred witness.
The High Court premises resembled a virtually impregnable fortress as the area was declared a no-access zone. India had been awaiting its Ayodhya moment since the last 18 years now, after the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992 that placed the country on a communal volcano which has periodically erupted from time to time. The judgment came after the last hurdle in its pronouncement was cleared by the Supreme Court Tuesday when it dismissed the petition by a retired bureaucrat Ramesh Chandra Tripathi for deferment of the keenly-awaited verdict. The Ayodhya dispute, which has been an emotive issue for decades and mired in a slew of legal suits involving Hindu and Muslim religious groups, dates back to the year 1528 when a mosque was built on the site by Mughal emperor Babar, which Hindus claim to be a birth place of Lord Ram and believe to be the spot where a Hindu temple existed since 11th Century.

Mixed reaction to Ayodhya verdict in Pakistan


Islamabad, Sept.30 (ANI): Reactions in Pakistan to the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid verdict issued by the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court today have been mixed.
While right-wing political workers termed the verdict as being biased against Muslims, a majority of the people said that they were not aware or knowledgeable enough about the issue or the verdict, and therefore, refrained from comment.
Students at Iqra University in Islamabad said the issue was of little relevance to the people of Pakistan, as it was India''s internal problem. Some opined that the verdict looked tilted towards the Hindu majority in that country, but others hailed the far-sightedness of the Indian judiciary in wanting the people to come out of the past and look ahead. 
Shamoon Hashmi, a noted TV anchor and literary personality, praised the decision and recalled that even in Peshawar people have built a mosque and a church in the same compound. 
Senior analyst Nasim Zehra was quoted by a news channel as saying that the verdict was a strong message to all Indians to set the past aside and maintain communal harmony. 
One student said the verdict was far from "secular", as it was based on the birth of a deity thousands of years ago, which could not be proved in a court of law. 
Noted intellectual and writer Harris Khalique said the judgment appeared sound as before the 1940s, the Babri Masjid was called Masjid-e-Janam Asthan, which proved that Muslims of Ayodhya recognized the sanctity and importance of the place and desired religious harmony. 
He also said the verdict highlighted the secular approach of former Awadh (as Uttar Pradesh was known in between the 17th and 19th centuries) ruler Wajid Ali Shah.
Harris said there was a need to implement the verdict in its spirit of futurism and communal harmony to sanctify India''s secular tradition. He, however, warned that implementation would be a long and difficult process.
Political analyst Nusrat Javeed said the verdict was India''s internal matter and Pakistanis could neither accept nor reject it.
He termed the judgment a political and compromise verdict. 
Human rights activist and a senior member of Indo-Pak Peoples Forum Mohammad Tahseen described the judgment as both practical and strategic, considering the complex nature of the case and its backdrop. 
He said Muslims and other communities should end their romance with the past and try to live peacefully. (ANI)
