ram: Ramjanmabhoomi owner, Ram Lalla’s ‘friend’ Triloki Nath Pandey passes away | India News


AYODHYA: Triloki Nath Pandey, who was bestowed with the ownership of 2.77 acres of Ramjanmabhoomi (birth place of Lord Ram) by the historic Supreme Court decree of November 9, 2019, by virtue of his stature as “Fast Friend of Ram Lalla”, passed away late Friday. He was 75.
A key Hindu litigant in the Ayodhya title suit, Pandey had moved the Supreme Court after he was made custodian of the sanctum sanctorum (middle part of the complex) in a three-way division of the then disputed land by a three-judge bench of the Allahabad high court in August 2010.
The third in the line of the “Friends of Ram Lalla” after Devaki Nandan Agarwal and TP Verma, Pandey was considered the real architect of the ‘Ramjanmabhoomi liberation’ for his decades-old legal battle, which he won.
He was not a high-profile leader of the Ram temple movement, but he devoted his life to a legal battle for the Ramjanmabhoomi. Despite his long association with Vishwa Hindu Parishad, he believed in a harmonious relationship with his Muslim brethren, particularly the lawyers pleading the Babri Masjid case.
Pandey’s younger son Amit, a Delhi-based software engineer, confirmed his death to TOI. Amit said his father passed away around 8 pm at Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences in Lucknow, where he was hospitalised a fortnight back. His mortal remains will be brought to Ayodhya late in the night and then his last rites will be performed at his ancestral village in Ballia district.
In an interview to TOI, a month before the Supreme Court’s Ayodhya verdict, he had said, “It was Lord Ram, who inspired us to fight for his rights in the court. To represent God is a glorious job and to think I was chosen to do this job from among millions of Hindus made me proud and joyful.”
