The Ayodhya Dispute, Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid issue has remained a political and historical issue since many years on who owns the title of 67.703 acres of land.
THE CRUX OF AYODHYA VERDICT
September 9: The Supreme Court of India has given the Ayodhya verdict and stated that the entire disputed 2.77-acre land will go to the Hindus for the construction of Ram Mandir. A trust will be formed within three months and the same will be responsible for monitoring the construction of the temple. A suitable alternative plot of land measuring 5 acres will be given to the Sunni Waqf Board.
However, for the Nirmohi Akhara, the bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the Akhara's suit was barred by limitation and that it is not a devotee of the deity Ram Lalla.
The Supreme court verdict included The Chief Justice, CJI Ranjan Gogoi leading the bench of Justices, SA Bobde, DY Chadrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer.
Finally, the Ayodhya verdict has come after nine years when in 2010, the Allahabad High Court ordered a three-way division of the disputed land between the three parties - Ram Lalla, The Sunni Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara. At that time, the Allahabad High Court stated that the Hindus and Muslims will be joint holders of the disputed land.
POSSESSION OF THE LAND
As said by the bench, the possession of the disputed 2.77 acres of land rights will be handed over to the Hindu deity, Ram Lalla, the party who is one of the three litigants in the case. However, the possession will remain with the central government until a trust is formed. The apex court has directed allotment of alternative land of 5 acres to the Muslims to build a mosque.
The extensive nature of the Hindus worshipping at the outer courtyard has been seen and there is also evidence of Muslims offering Friday prayers at the Mosque. These sights indicate that they have not lost the possession of the site.
The Apex court finally said that the faith of Hindus that Lord Ram was born at the demolished structure is now undisputed. The existence of Sita Rasoi, Ram Chabutra, and Bhandar Grih are the testimonies of the religious facts of this place.
As people are happy with the verdict, they are busy posting on social media with the hashtags:
