The Supreme Court has refused to refer Ayodhya land dispute case to a larger bench. The Supreme Court has refused to revisit its 1994 ruling that the government can acquire land that a mosque is built on. The ruling will not be referred to a larger bench, the three-judge Bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said. It could also be one of the last verdicts that Chief Justice Misra delivers before he retires. In 1994, the Supreme Court said that namaz could be offered anywhere and that a mosque was not necessary. A three-judge bench of the apex court will commence hearing on Ayodhya land dispute in the week starting from October 29.
