The court adjourned the case for March 14 at the request of advocate Ejaz Maqbool who pointed out English translations of several books and documents that needed to be referred were not available. The court, however, refused to hear it on a day-to-day basis.

A special bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra was hearing the civil appeals, arising out of 2010 verdict of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court, which in a 2:1 majority ruling, had ordered that the disputed land be partitioned equally among three parties - the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla. The bench, comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice S. Abdul Nazeer, however, made it clear that it would first hear the petitioners in the case and then intervenors like Subramanian Swamy and Shyam Benegal.

The Ayodhya land dispute case is one of the oldest cases of the country.

The Supreme Court will hear the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case next on 14 March, as a "pure land dispute", it ruled on Thursday.

Allahabad High Court had on September 30, 2010 proposed that the 2.77 acre of land should be divided in three parts.

Bengaluru, Feb 8 Renewing his mediation efforts on the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute in Ayodhya, Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar today held a meeting here with Muslim leaders, including members from the All India Muslim Personal Law Board and Sunni Waqf Board.

The state had also translated and filed depositions of 87 witnesses apart from the report of the Archaeological Survey of India (which carried out an archaeological study of the disputed site) and relevant photographs, Mehta said. The SC had said, "These are appeals against the high court judgment on title suits and all parties are present before us". He added that the mosque can be built on an alternative land near the disputed site.

Rehmani, however, said the Board will abide by the Supreme Court's decision in the matter.

Meanwhile, the Ayodhya Sadbhavna Samnvyay Maha Samiti has made a proposal to the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on the dispute.

Political and religious leaders, mainly Hindu, are pushing for the construction of a Ram temple at the site where the Babri tomb was destroyed by a mob in 1992.

However, senior counsel Harish Salve, who appeared for the other side, had said that as far as the court was concerned, it was "just a case" and the repercussion of the outcome of the case was none of its outlook.
