Historic Judgment: Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas Gets Disputed Site, Muslims To Get Alternate Land :Supreme Court Delivers
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court of India in its Historic Judgment on Saturday on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute has declared that the entire 2.77 disputed land will be given to Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas under a trust that has to be formed by the Center within 3 months time. The Sunni Waqf Board will get alternate land of 5 acres within Ayodhya to build a mosque. While delivering the Judgment, the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said that the “Judgment is unanimous” by the Division Bench comprising 5 Judges- DY Chandrachud, Justices SA Bobde, S Abdul Nazeer and Ashok Bhushan. The Supreme Court clearly mentioned that the disputed land will be given to Ram Janmabhoomi Nayas with a trust to be formed by the Center within 3 months to monitor the construction of Ram Temple.
The bench upheld the report of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), which concluded that there was a temple at the disputed site. There is clear evidence that Hindus believe that Ram was born in a controversial place. The SC has dismissed a petition filed by the All India Shia Personal Law Board which stated the disputed land belongs to them. The petition filed by Nirmohi Akhara was also dismissed.
