New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India, ruling the Babri Masjid case, ordered the central government to construct a scheme within 3-4 months and hand over the land to the Hindus for the construction of the temple.
According to Indian media, a five-member bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, heard the verdict regarding the Babri Masjid. The court rejected the request of the Sun Central Waqf Board and said that the Babri Masjid Temple was demolished and the Allahabad High Court’s decision to split the disputed land into three parts was wrong.
Indian Supreme Court Chief Justice Rajan Gogoi said that there was no evidence that prayers were ever performed on this land before 1856 while the structure on which the Babri Masjid was built has no Islamic background. The case can be decided not on faith and belief but on claims. Historical statements indicate the belief of Hindus that Ayodhya was the birthplace of Ram.
The Indian Chief Justice said that there is evidence that before the British came, Hindoram Chabutra, who worshiped Sita Rasoi, the evidence in the record shows that the disputed land was owned by Hindus.
During the hearing, the Chief Justice remarked that this court should accept all the beliefs and accept the beliefs of the worshipers. The court must maintain balance. Hindus consider Ayodhya as the birthplace of Ram, they have religious sentiments, Muslims call it Babri Masjid. Hindus believe that Bhagwan Ram was born here.
The court ordered that 5 acres of land in Ayodhya be given to Muslims as a substitute for the construction of the mosque. The Indian Supreme Court has directed the central government to establish a scheme of trust in the area and submit a scheme within 3-4 months to hand over the land to the Hindus for the construction of the temple.
Earlier, the Indian Supreme Court had set up an arbitration team headed by Muslim Judge FM Khalifullah to resolve the dispute between Muslims and Hindus outside the Babri Masjid and Ram Temple land. Spiritual guru Shri Shri Ravi Shankar and senior lawyer Shri Ram Pancho were also present. committee, however, could not come to a conclusion.
The Allahabad High Court had earlier ruled on September 30, 2010 in the Babri Masjid case. In it, three judges had ordered to divide the two acres of Ayodhya’s 77.7 acres into three parts. One-third of the land will go to the Ram Lala Temple, represented by the Hindu Mahasabha, one-third will go to the Sunni waqf board while the remaining one-third of the land will be given to Narumoi Akhara.
It should be noted that the Babri Masjid was built by Zaheer-ud-din Babar, the founder of the Mughal Empire in 1528 and hence it is called the Babri Masjid. The matter came to the Supreme Court through various courts, committees and commissions. The three main parties were Nirmohi Akhara, Ralla Lala and Sunni Waqf Board.
