Pandey is the third friend of Ram Lalla after the first two died. The first friend was a former Allahabad Court judge Deoki Nandan Agarwal, who had become a senior VHP functionary after retiring from the judiciary, while the second friend was the former history professor TP Verma.

  5. On 9th October 2019 judgement, the deity Ram Lalla  or Bhagwan Ram (infant) was given the ownership of the disputed land. Since the deity is considered to be a minor, its 'friend' holds the legal proceedings on its behalf.

  7. In the Ram-Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case, the Supreme Court accepted that the alleged placing of Ram Lalla inside the mosque on 22nd-23rd December of 1949 and the demolition of the Babri masjid on 6th December 1992 was a violation of law.
