Jun 06, 2012 — INDIA (SUN) — Following is an update from Dayaram das on the ISKCON Mumbai v. Bangalore case:
“As you know in February 2012 Madhu Pandit Dasa (Madhu Pandit dasa) filed Interlocutory Application (IA) to curtail powers of the Supervisory committee, headed by Justice Ravindran. This committee was appointed by the Supreme Court on 14th December, 2011.
In the said order dated 14th December, 2011 the Supreme Court directed that the committee headed by Justice Ravindran should supervise management of temple and its properties but Madhu Pandit dasa wanted Justice Ravindran Committee’s powers to be confined only to the Bangalore temple affairs and not to any other property.
In February we (ISKCON) had also filed an IA to dismiss the SLP on the ground that Madhu Pandit dasa has violated previous Supreme Court order.
During the mediation proceedings, to our surprise, Madhu Pandit dasa got his IA listed for mentioning therefore on mentioning day (26 April) our advocate insisted that our IA for dismissal of the SLP should also be listed for hearing along with Madhu Pandit dasa’s IA, and then Madhu Pandit dasa’s lawyer insisted that Madhu Pandit dasa’s contempt petition against me (personally) be also listed.
On 26th April 2012 Justice Kabir posted all the three matters (Madhu Pandit dasa’s IA and contempt petition and our IA) to 8th May 2012.
On 8th May it was item # 5 and it reached quite early but Madhu Pandit dasa’s lawyer asked for pass over and it was never called again so it was listed as item # 50 on Wednesday 9th May. On 9th May our lawyer was busy in another court therefore, at our request, it was posted today [May 10, 2012] for hearing.
