Hero luminary and two-time Attorney General of India K Parasaran was the lead counsel for the Hindu parties in temple-mosque land dispute in Ayodhya and he successfully argued for possession of the entire disputed land in the Supreme Court in favour of the deity “Ram Lalla Virajman”. During the hearing, the 92-year-old senior lawyer had told the apex court that it must do “full and complete justice” in all matters before it and that his last wish before he died was to finish the case. Sitting in the front row, he listened to Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi pronouncing the historical verdict. As soon as the verdict was over, lawyers from the Hindu side surrounded him and congratulated but the nonagenarian jurist held back his emotions. Minutes later, helped by his juniors, he emerged out of the courtroom and allowed people to click his photographs on their mobile phones. An erudite Hindu scholar who often quoted from Hindu scriptures in his arguments, Parasaran was referred to as the “Pitamaha” of the India Bar by Supreme Court judge and former chief justice of Madras High Court Sanjay Kishan Kaul for his contribution to the law without compromising with his ”dharma”. He had also appeared for the Nair Service Society, in the Sabarimala case, to defend the ban on the entry of menstruating women in the temple.
