It is really hard to miss the Supreme Court opposite treatment of two prestigious and famous matters.
The Ayodhya – Ram Janmabhoomi case needs a settlement – however the Supreme Court’s hearings and final judgment keeps getting delayed for decades.
On the other hand, on the Sabarimala issue, the court has ruled against the 1,000s year old traditions – probably a hurried judgment. And when the judgement was appealed on henalf of lakhs and crores of devotees and even when they sought an emergency hearing, the Supreme Court has refused to hear these?

Ram Mandir – Masjid settlement is with the Supreme Court. The Allahabad high court had already awarded its judgment. In an unusual move, the sitting Chief Justice of India has offered to broker a voluntary resolution. As correctly noted by the justice, this is a sensitive case and a negotiated settlement as against the high court making judgement could be a better way forward. Several parties have welcome this move, however the Babri Masjid convener does not favor this path. One solution could be that of Subramanian Swamy, MP and litigant in the case has said that Ram Janmabhoomi – which after all is the birth place of Lord Ram be handed over for temple and the masjid can be built on the other side of Sarayu river.
