India's top court to hear Ayodhya religious dispute on daily basis

India's top court to hear Ayodhya religious dispute on daily basisIndia’s top court will hear arguments every day in an effort to resolve a decades-old dispute over what should be built on the ruins of a 16th-century mosque, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said on Friday. The move strengthens hopes for eventual resolution of a quarrel at the center of fraught ties between India’s majority Hindus and its Muslim community, which accounts for 14% of a population of 1.3 billion. Many devout Hindus believe the site in Ayodhya, in India’s most populous state of Uttar Pradesh, to be the birthplace of one of their most revered deities, the Lord Ram.

Supreme Court to hear biggest gun rights case since 2010

Supreme Court to hear biggest gun rights case since 2010The nine justices will review a 2018 lower court ruling upholding the city’s restrictions after three gun owners and the NRA’s New York state affiliate sued claiming the regulations imposed in the largest American city violated the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment right to “keep and bear arms.” The decision indicates a new interest regarding gun rights on the court, where conservatives hold a 5-4 majority. The Supreme Court had not taken up a major firearms case since issuing important rulings in 2008 and 2010 that established an individual right to own guns for self-defense inside the home. The issue of gun rights is contentious in the United States, which has experienced a succession of mass shootings in recent decades and calls from many Americans for stricter regulation of firearms and ammunition.
