Neither Ramlala, nor Waqf Board, all our land – Nirmohi Arena
Starting the debate on Tuesday, in the Allahabad High Court’s decision, the owner of one third land, Nirmohi Akhara, claimed that the disputed 2.77 acres of land is neither of Ramlala nor of the Sunni Waqf Board. All that land belongs to the arena only.
Sushil Jain, advocate of Nirmohi Akhara, did a long cross-examination before the court. Sushil Jain said that since 1934 the entry of Muslims at the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site is closed. Nirmohi Akhara argued that this land was owned by him for hundreds of years. Advocating the Nirmohi Akhara, Sushil Jain said, “We are a registered institution, our demand is to own, manage and occupy the premises. We had possession of the inner complex and Ramjanmasthana for hundreds of years. ‘Sita Rasoi’, ‘Chabutra’ and ‘Bhandar Griha’ were also in our possession, there was no dispute about it. ” The Nirmohi Akhara said before a constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi that it had claimed the disputed land since 1934, when the Sunni Waqf Board had claimed the disputed land in 1961.
During the debate in the Supreme Court, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that we should clear the condition of our structure there. The Chief Justice asked from where does the entry take place? From Sita Kitchen or from Hanuman Gate? Apart from this, CJI asked how Nirmohi Arena is registered?
Namaz not read since 16 December 1949: Ayodhya case

No room for Vaju in the campus
Giving second evidence, Nirmohi Akhada said that according to Islam, the Vaju is done before offering Namaz, in which Namaji washes hands and feet and body parts before offering Namaz. The lawyer said that there is no place for Vaju at this place. Since 1885 no Namaz has been paid there. That is, the use of the structure as a mosque was stopped decades before the claim.
Nirmohi Akhara also claimed in the court that Hindus tried to re-enact the right to worship in 1850. Worship continued in the inner yard. But this system could not be formalized due to the British occupation and the policy of dividing Hindus and Muslims. The worshipers filed a court suit in 1989 to formalize the right to worship. During the debate, it was said that there were riots first in 1853 then in 1885 and later in 1934 to capture the temple / mosque building and its property at the disputed site.
Nirmohi Akhada said that we were worshiping there for centuries, only our priests were handling the management, on December 6 in 1992, mischievous elements demolished the disputed structure built on Ramjanmabhoomi.
