Additionally, more than 50 legal experts, including former Chief Justices, judges, and prominent lawyers, have also been extended invitations.
The five-member bench, consisting of then-CJI Ranjan Gogoi, former CJI SA Bobde, current CJI DY Chandrachud, and former judges Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer, had issued a favorable ruling for the construction of a grand Ram temple by a trust at the disputed site on November 9, 2019.
The bench awarded the entire disputed land to the deity Ram Lalla and directed the government to allocate an alternative five-acre plot to the Muslim side for the construction of a mosque. In Ayodhya, the Babri mosque had previously stood at the site believed to be the birthplace of Lord Ram. This viewpoint gained traction in the saffron camp's sustained campaign, initiated in the late 1980s, eventually culminating in the demolition of the mosque in 1992.
