#AyodhyaJudgment Temple at disputed site, SC grants entire 2.77-acre of disputed land to Ram Lalla
The Supreme Court of India on Saturday cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya, and directed the Modi led Centre Govt. to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
In one of the crucial and most anticipated judgements in Indian history, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi put an end to the more than a century old dconflict that has torn badly the social fabric of the nation several times.
The Sureme court ordered the mosque should be constructed at a "prominent site" and a trust should be formed within three months for the construction of the temple at the site many Hindus believe Lord Ram was born.
The site was occupied by the 16th century Babri mosque which was demolished by Hindu kar sevaks on December 6, 1992.
Gogoi led bench, also comprising Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer, said possession of the disputed 2.77 acre land rights will handed over to the deity Ram Lalla, who is one of the three litigants in the case. According to DD news the possession however will remain with a central government receiver.
