THE Supreme Courts decision to postpone its verdict on a plea for the Allahabad High Court to not deliver an immediate verdict on the Ayodhya title suits could well be one of those rare cases when justice delayed is not such a bad thing.This,of course,is only a play on words.The judicial verdict on a matter like the Ayodhya dispute would only settle a matter of legal propriety,but could still be considered unjust by large numbers of people.Some of the questions involved in the suits being heard relate to history: when did the idols appear at the site,had the site been a place of continuous worship by Muslims,etc.One party to the case is Lord Ram himself,duly represented by an advocate.The dispute interlaces and juxtaposes faith,unrecorded history and recorded history.Resolving a dispute of this nature is beyond the scope of law.Only democratic political action to strike an acceptable balance between conflicting expectations can offer a lasting solution.
