A plea to counter Supreme Court’s 1994 verdict was struck down by the Apex Court on Thursday.
The plea demanding that the previous verdict of apex court should be referred to larger bench. But the three judges bench said that Mosque is not an integral part of Islam. Mosque is not mandatory to pray namaj. A person can pray namaj at any place wherever he wanted.
Which means three judges bench uphold previous (1994) verdict and refused to send the plea before a larger bench. The court also mentioned that impact of the verdict will not affect the Ayodha hearing.

Thursday Supreme Court observed, “The culture of India is bigger. All the religion has equal priorities. No religion gets special treatment. And prayer place is most important part of every religion. But if somehow any prayer place is used to serve public interest then the practice could not be criticised.”
The same observation was asserted at ’94 verdict. That time the verdict was challenged by some muslim organisation, where five judges bench shown same stand as Thursday apex court shown. After refusing to refer the verdict before larger bench the court said, “If we do so than the prime case related to Ayodha will be affected and verdict could be delayed. We start hearing of the case from 29th September onwards.”
