We stand by Kapil Sibal's request: Zafaryab Jilani

We Stand By Kapil Sibal's Request In SC To Postpone Babri Masjid Case Hearing Says Main Petitioner Never asked Sibal to get Ayodhya case postponed: Sunni Board

Incidentally, it was also the 25th anniversary of the demolition of the structure in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya. "He is entitled to do that, but is it right for him to say postpone hearing till 2019?" "You want to stop the hearing of Ram temple (issue) in the name of elections", Modi told a well attended election rally here in Ahmedabad district.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi yesterday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that "unlike Narendrabhai" he was human and could err.

The Sunni Waqf Board dissociated itself from Sibal's suggestion.

Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court, however, deferred the commencement of final hearing in the Ayodhya dispute matter to February 8, 2018.

While Sibal's denial that he appeared for the Waqf Board was supported by a reference in the order of the SC bench on December 5, which showed that he appeared for two private persons from the minority community, the claim was denied by other facts concerning the crucial hearing in the sensitive Ayodhya case. The chairman of the body, Zufar Ahmed Farooqui said Sibal wasn't the board's lawyer and that Mehboob himself was not a member of the board, "but an individual party to the matter". He said, "Does the Waqf Board fight elections?"

Coalition with Merkel not automatic, all options open: Germany's SPD
If Merkel can't put together a coalition, the only options would be a minority government or a new election. The SPD will hold a party congress in Berlin on December 7-9, where it is expected to debate its options.

"I want to question the Congress Party and explain if it wants the Ram Janmbhoomi matter to be heard at the earliest or not", he asked. "He (Sibal) just gave his arguments on the political level, as they will lose the elections if they lose this case", Swamy said.

"Why does he have to link a Ram mandir (temple) with the elections". "Sibal presented the view that this judgment would affect 2019 elections".

Congress leader Kapil Sibal hit back at Modi, saying that he ought to check facts before making statements.

Haji Mehboob's remarks lend credence to the Bharatiya Janata Party's allegation that Sibal behaved as an agent for the Congress party in the Supreme Court rather than as an agent for the Sunni Waqf Board who was seeking a resolution of the long-standing dispute.

BJP chief Amit Shah today stepped up his attack on the Congress over the Ram temple issue by accusing it of "shameful posturing".
