In a land mark judgement the Supreme Court  today said the disputed land in Ayodhya will be given to a government-run trust for the building of a temple and a five-acre plot at a “prominent site” will be given for a mosque.

The Supre court verdict came today in the contentious religious and political flashpoint that has cast a shadow on the communal harmony of the country for decades.  A five-judge constitution bench delivered a unanimous verdict that is expected to rest the acentury-old legal wrangle over a piece of land in Ayodhya . The 16th century o,d Babri mosque stood in Ayodhya before it was razed by Hindu activists who believe it is the birthplace of Lord Ram.  The mosque demolition was a violation of the law, the court said. The deity Ram Lalla, or infant Ram, one of the litigants of the case, has been given the ownership of the 2.77-acre disputed land.  The right of Ram Lalla to the disputed property is subject to the maintenance of peace and law and order and tranquility ,the court said.

There have been appeals for peace and heightened security across the country because of the verdict.The verdict had to be delivered before Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi retires on November 17.The five-judge constitution bench heard the case for 40 days. The other members of the bench are Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer.
