Innes and Muttusami Ayyar, JJ.
1. We cannot see our way to distinguishing this case in principle from Raja Varmah Raja v. Revi Varma Raja I.L.R. 1 Mad. 235 in which the Privy Council held that transfers of religious trusts were void.
2. There seems to be no real distinction between the mischief of such a transfer in perpetuity and a transfer for the long period of ninety-six years.
3. If the validity of the transfer is not made out, it follows that plaintiff cannot redeem and his suit for redemption must fail.
4. We dismiss the appeal with costs.
