NEW DELHI: On the seventh day of hearing of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir and Babri Masjid case on August 16, senior advocate S Vaidyanathan, appearing for Ram Lalla Virajman, presented the maps and photographs of the disputed land before the court. He said the pillars found during the excavation show a picture of Shri Krishna, Shiva Tandava and Sri Ram. C.S. Vaidyanathan said that in the building where three domes were built, there was a statue of Ram in kid form. Cs Vaidyanathan said that merely offering prayers cannot be his place unless it is your property.
Vaidyanathan said that the Muslim community's reading of street prayers should not be understood as claiming their ownership. Muslims have never prayed on disputed land, so they are not occupied. If prayers are offered in the street, it does not mean that those who pray are occupied on the street. CS Vaidyanathan said that the mosque cannot have statues of human beings or animals, mosques are meant for mass weekly and daily prayers. The Sunni Wakf Board lawyer Rajiv Dhawan objected to this, saying that it is wrong to offer prayers anywhere, it is not a correct interpretation of Islam.
C.S. Vaidyanathan said that mosques do not have pillars with images of gods. The pillars and statues on the roof area in the picture temples and the Hindu tradition is the same. C Vaidyanathan says the commissioner's report mentions Ram Janmabhoomi Yatra on stone pillars. Justice Bhushan said the photographs taken in 1950 are more reliable than the 1990s. Justice Bobda asked, "Has the carbon dating of the statues been there?" The Muslim side said that carbon dating of bricks cannot be done because carbon dating can only happen if it contains carbon.
