New Delhi: The Supreme Court has finally given its verdict on the longest running dispute of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid among the three parties Sunni Waqf, Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla Virajman. The Supreme court has given the 2.77 acre land to the Hindu parties for the construction of Ram Temple. An alternate 5 acres of land will be given to Sunni Waqf Board.
The five-judge bench of Supreme Court consisted of the Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi and his successor SA Bobde and Justices Abdul Nazeer, Ashok Bhushan and DY Chandrachud. The Supreme Court, citing the ASI (Archaeological Survey of India) reports, said that the Babri Masjid was not built on a vacant land and the underlying structure did not belong to Islamic origin. They also said that Ram Janmabhoomi isn’t a legal personality but the deity Ram Lalla Virajman is a juristic entity.
Sunni Waqf Board on this, said that they are not satisfied with the judgment although they respect it. They will now be deciding the further course of action.
Nirmohi Akhara spokesperson, Kartik Chopra, being grateful to the Supreme Court said that they are happy the court recognized their fight of the last 150 years.
