Full Text: The Supreme Court’s Judgment in the Ayodhya Title Dispute Case

A five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court – led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and comprising Justices S.A. Bobde, D.Y. Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S. Abdul Nazeer – heard the matter.

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has pronounced its “unanimous” verdict in the Ayodhya title dispute case, saying that the Hindu parties will be given the disputed land where the Babri Masjid once stood. The Sunni Waqf Board, the biggest Muslim litigant in the case, will be given five acres at a separate “prominent” location in Ayodhya.

A board of trustees is to be set up within three months for the construction of a temple, by the government of India. The court thus decreed the suit filed by the Ram Lalla. The bench added that the Ram Lalla’s rights to the disputed property will be subject to law and order and communal harmony being maintained.
