SC accepted our appeal: lawyer for Ram Lalla
The appeals against partition of the disputed land, has accepted, said Ravi Shankar Prasad.

New Delhi: Ravi Shankar Prasad, the lawyer for Ram Lalla, said the Supreme Court on Monday accepted the appeals files against the Allahabad High Court verdict regarding partition of the disputed land in Ayodhya.

"There were appeals filed against the Allahabad High Court verdict. This appeal was accepted. The court said that if parties didn't ask for a partition of the land then how can the court decide on it," Ravi Shankar Prasad.

The Supreme Court on Monday stayed Allahabad High Court's verdict on Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute. The two-judge bench of Justice Aftab Alam and Justice RS Lodha was critical of the High Court verdict observing that it was "strange" as nobody had asked for partition of the land.

A three-judge bench of the Allahabad High Court's Lucknow bench had passed three separate judgements on September 30, 2010 with the majority verdict holding that the area covered by the central dome of the three-domed structure, where the idol of Lord Rama is situated, belongs to Hindus.

While justice SU Khan and Justice Sudhir Agarwal were of the view that the entire disputed land should be divided into three parts - one part each to Sunni Waqf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and the parties representing 'Ram Lalla Virajman', Justice Dharam Veer Sharma had held that the entire disputed area belongs to Hindus.

Expressing dissatisfaction over the High Court's verdict of dividing the 2.77 acre disputed site into three parts among Muslims, Hindus and Nirmohi Akhara, different religious groups had approached the apex court.

The appeals were filed by Nirmohi Akhara, Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, Jamait Ulama-I-Hind and Sunni Central Wakf Board. A petition has also been filed on behalf of Bhagwan Ram Virajman (seated Baby Ram).
