Justice Dharamvir Sharma, who was part of Bench that gave the Ram Janmabhoomi verdict, passes away


Noida, May 8 (ILNS) Retired Justice Dharamvir Sharma, who was part of the three-member Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court that pronounced the landmark verdict on September 30, 2010 on the Sri Ram Janmabhoomi dispute in Ayodhya, has passed away.

The 74-year-old was currently residing in Sector 12, Noida. He was admitted to a hospital in Noida last morning, where he breathed his last on Friday.

Justice Dharamvir Sharma was born in the Haveli family of Danpur Nagar in Bulandshahr. He did his Graduation in Arts in 1967 and passed LLB in 1970.

He served as Principal Secretary, Parliamentary Affairs, Government of Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow from August, 2003 to August, 2004 and Principal Secretary (Judicial) & LR Government of UP, Lucknow from August, 2004 to October, 2005.

Dharamvir Sharma was appointed in PCS (J) in 1972 and promoted in Higher Judicial Service in 1985. He was promoted in 2002 as District & Sessions Judge. He took oath as Permanent Judge of the Allahabad High Court on September 17, 2007.

The bachelor was the eldest of six siblings. He believed in the principle of simple living – higher thought. The great proof of his simplicity is that despite being held in such a large and respected position, he used to cook his own food.

Retired Justice Sharma delivered the landmark verdict on the Ram Temple dispute on September 30, 2010, on a three-member bench of the Allahabad High Court. He retired the next day after delivering the verdict.

Justice Sharma, who was one of the three members of the Bench of the Allahabad High Court that pronounced the verdict on Sri Ram Janmabhoomi dispute in Ayodhya, differed from the other two justices SU Khan and Sudhir Aggarwal.

Justices Khan and Justice Aggarwal said that the land of the disputed premises would be divided into three parts and and equal share should be given to the Hindu community, Sunni Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara.

Justice Sharma said that the disputed campus is the birthplace of Lord Ram. At this site, the Mughal ruler Babur broke the temple and built the Mosque. This is clear after the examination of the Mosque located in the campus, so the entire disputed campus should be given to the Hindus. ILNS/SHV/RJ
