Finally, the Supreme Court has delivered its verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid issue, one of the longest-running disputes in India.
The 2. 77-acre land has been given to the Hindu parties with a trust to be formed by the Centre within a period of three months to monitor the construction of a Ram Temple ruled a five-judge Constitution Bench of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, Justices Ashok Bhushan, D Y Chandrachud, Sharad Arvind Bobde and SA Nazeer.
Whereas, 5 Acres of alternate land will be given to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque ruled the SC bench.
A big team of paramilitary force members and police have been deployed in Ayodhya, where the Babri Masjid mosque was razed in 1992 by hardline Hindus who believe the site is the birthplace of Lord Ram.
However, not just Ayodhya, the government has put the security forces on high alert across the entire country. A verdict in favour of building a Ram Temple at Ayodhya would be seen as a political victory for Modi, who won a second term in a landslide general election win this year.
Section 144 has also been imposed in the state in Uttar Pradesh.
