New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the petition filed by Delhi MLA Shoaib Iqbal against the verdict of the Allahabad High Court on the Ayodhya dispute, saying it is "misconceived".

"The petition is misconceived. Hence dismissed," a Bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia said without even giving any chance for arguments.

The petition filed by the Lok Janshakti Party MLA said the judgement, which held that the place where the makeshift temple of Lord Rama currently exists belongs to Hindus, is based on "faith and belief" and as such it is against the constitution.

The MLA, who was not a party to the dispute on the title suits before the Lucknow bench of the High Court, had contended the demolished Babri Masjid was the property of the Wakf since 1528 AD.

In its petition, the politician had sought a stay on the September 30 judgement of the High Court.
