Lucknow:  Whatever the Supreme Court has ordered on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute cases should be honoured, All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) member Zafaryab Jilani said on Monday as the apex court fixed January to hear the matter.

"It is not appropriate for anyone to either welcome or condemn the order," the senior counsel told PTI.

 "Whatever the Supreme Court has said has to be honoured," Jilani added when asked to comment on the Supreme Court fixing the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute cases for the first week of January next year before an appropriate bench.

 He said they could present their grievances, if any, through a plea before the court.
  "But it will not be on public platform," Jilani stated.

 All India Shia Personal Law Board spokesperson Yasoob Abbas also did not comment directly on the Supreme Court developments of the morning. 
"This case should be resolved and it should not be allowed to hot up in the run-up to (Lok Sabha) elections," Abbas told PTI.
"Many mothers have lost their children, while wives lost their husbands over the temple-mosque conflict. India is a land of unity where people of different religions and faith live," he said.

The apex court has fixed the first week of January next year for the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute cases. The matter will come up before an appropriate bench, which will decide the schedule of hearing.
     A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, said the appropriate bench will decide the future course of hearing in January next year on the appeals filed against the Allahabad High Court verdict in the Ayodhya land dispute case.

"We will fix the date of hearing of the Ayodhya dispute case before the appropriate bench in January," the bench, which also comprised justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph, said.
     As many as 14 appeals have been filed against the high court judgement, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77 acres of land be partitioned equally among three parties -- the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
