#SupremeCourt #AyodhyaDispute Dr. Dhawan points out that there was a conflict between the Shia’s and Sunni’s for the disputed site where the Sunni’s won the suit.
Several years later the Shia’s in an SLP were in favour of giving the disputed site to the Sunni’s.
#SupremeCourt #AyodhyaMatter The Parikrama area was discovered in 1945 so the question of this affecting the 1989 suit does not arise.

#SupremeCourt #Ayodhya Dr. Dhavan interjects “The question was whether the Mosque was historic.
