Supreme Court Makes Way For Ram Temple
In a unanimous decision, a five-judge bench of the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the Hindu parties in the Ayodhya Land Dispute. The disputed land will be handed over to a trust which will also have representation from the Nirmohi Akhara, the apex court said. It directed allotment of alternate land to the Muslims for construction of the mosque.
Security Tightened Across India
Security has been tightened across India following the Supreme Court’s verdict on the decades-old Ayodhya land dispute case. The Section 144, which prohibits assembly of four or more people in an area, has been imposed in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Jammu & Kashmir and Rajasthan after the Ayodhya verdict. In Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, it had been imposed as a precautionary measure last night.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the Supreme Court’s judgment on the disputed site at Ayodhya is notable as it “highlights that any dispute can be amicably solved in the spirit of due process of law”. He also exhorted Indians for the “calm and peace” maintained in the run-up to today’s verdict. That message of maintaining “calm and peace” came from all leaders from various parties, including Amit Shah, Congress Leaders, Asaduddin Owaisi, Rajnath Singh and others.
While the Supreme Court has granted the land to the Hindu parties, it has also held that the destruction of the mosque was an illegal act. “I don’t think any court could have achieved such a fine balance, and that too, in the present circumstances”, argues Sajan Poovayya, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court. Soli Sorabjee, Mohan Parasaran and Subramanian Swamy also gave their legal views on the 1,045-page judgment.
