The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected all interim pleas seeking to intervene in Babri Masjid-Ram temple title case.

Accepting the plea that only original parties to Babri Masjid-Ram Temple title dispute be heard and interventions of unrelated people be rejected, the Supreme Court dismissed as many as 32 intervention applications in the case including those of Aparna Sen, Shyam Benegal, and Teesta Setalvad.

The apex court also rejected a plea of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy seeking to intervene, and ordered revival of Swamy's disposed plea that had sought enforcement of his fundamental right to worship at Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

On February 9, the top court was likely to start 'final hearings' on a bunch of 13 petitions over the 2.7 acre land dispute that is claimed by both Hindus and Muslims. However, the date was postponed, as some documents and translations were not filed before the apex court.

The petitions before the judges relate to the 2010 verdict of the Allahabad High Court in the title suit that had been pending for nearly six decades. The dispute before the court was whether the 2.7 acres of disputed la nd on which the Babri Masjid was constructed belonged to the Sunni Central Waqf Board or to the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, who claimed the land to be the birthplace of Hindu Lord Ram, and thus entitled for the construction of a Ram Temple.

Union Minister Giriraj Singh on Wednesday said that Muslims should follow in the footsteps of Shia Waqf Board and support the construction of Ram temple on the disputed site.

"I believe our side is stronger. We will respect the court's decision but I would say that the way our Shia brothers have extended support to build the Ram temple, other Muslim brothers should also do so, and let go of their obstinacy because we both are descendants of Hindus," Singh told ANI.

Thousands of Hindu karsevaks had demolished the Babri mosque in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992.

Around 2,000 people were killed in the riots that followed.
