New Delhi: Justice (retired) Sudhir Agarwal, who was part of the Allahabad High Court bench that delivered the most important verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case in 2010, has claimed that he was under pressure not to deliver the verdict. He said that if he had not given the verdict at that time under pressure, then there would not have been any decision in this case for the next 200 years.   Justice Agarwal retired from the high court on April 23, 2020.

Speaking to reporters at an event in Meerut on Friday, Justice Agarwal said, "I felt blessed after pronouncing the verdict. There was a lot of pressure on me to postpone the verdict in the case. There was pressure from within the house and from outside. My family and relatives were all saying that wait for any time to pass and not give your own verdict. Justice Agarwal also claimed that if he had not delivered the verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute on September 30, 2010, it would not have been decided even for the next 200 years. '' 

On September 30, 2010, the Allahabad High Court, by a majority of 2:1, had ruled that the 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya was to be equally divided into three parts. One part was to be given to the Sunni Waqf Board, one part to the Nirmohi Akhara and one part to 'Ram Lalla'. The bench comprised Justices S U Khan, Sudhir Agarwal and D V Sharma. In a landmark verdict in November 2019, the Supreme Court had said that a temple would be built on the disputed site in Ayodhya and ordered the government to allot a 5-acre plot elsewhere to Muslim parties. At present, a grand temple of Lord Ram is being built in Ayodhya and the construction work of the mosque is going on on 5 acres of land.
