The Mahant of Nirmohi Akhara, Bhaskar Das, a prominent figure in the Ram mandir movement, passed away on Saturday morning. He was 89 years old. Hashim Ansari, who was the oldest litigant in the case, died in July 2016 at the age of 95.

With Bhaskar Das's death, both chief litigants in the infamous case, one from the Muslim and one from the Hindu side, are no more.

Das, who staunchly pushed for the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, died of heart attack. He breathed his last around 3 am Saturday. Mahant Bhaskar Das had moved Faizabad civil court of in 1956, claiming the Babri Masjid land was property of Nirmohi Akhara, following which, the Babri Masjid was locked and no prayers were allowed there. He was also the mahant of the Naka Hanuman Gadhi in Ayodhya of Faizabad district of Uttar Pradesh.

Ansari had been involved in the case since 1949, when members of the Akhil Bharatiya Ramayana Mahasabha spent nine days reciting Ramacharitramanas outside the mosque and later placed idols of Ram and Sita inside it.

Summary: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, BJP state president Mahendra Nath Pandey expressed condolence on the demise of Mahant Bhaskar Das.

Das was also a priest at Ram Chabutara near the disputed site.
