SC Ends Ayodhya Dispute, Temple Will Be Built At Disputed Site. Muslims To Get Alternate Land
Hindustan Times

The Supreme Court of India has unanimously decided that a temple will be built at the disputed Ayodhya site which had Babri Masjid till 1992. An alternate site will be given to the Sunni Waqf board.


A five-judge Supreme Court bench is reading out a unanimous verdict on the decades-old Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid title dispute. It said that the Archeological Survey of India report on the disputed land. 
The court said that the underlying structure can’t be dismissed and that Babri Masjid wasn’t constructed on a vacant land.
The Shia Waqf Board’s claim on the Babri Masjid was unanimously dismissed along with that of Nirmohi Akhara. The bench ruled that the Nirmohi Akhara suit is barred by limitations and said the Akhara isn’t a shebait.
The Chief Justice of India started reading the judgement at 10:30 am. The court dismissed the suit by Nirmohi Akhara. 
The CJI said that according to ASI the mosque was not built on an empty land. 
The Supreme Court conducted a marathon hearing for 40 days before reserving its verdict for the decades old Babri Masjid-Ram Janmbhoomi title dispute case.
The 5-judge bench that decided the case was headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi, and included Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer. 
The apex court began the daily hearings on appeals filed against the Judgement given by the Allahabad high court in 2010 that advised to trifurcate the disputed land. 
Post independence, the case first came to light when the idol of Ram Lalla were found inside Babri Masjid in 1949. There were several pleas in the court along with years of Ram Janam Bhoomi Andolan that eventually led to the demolition of Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992.  
The conflict goes back to 1885 and even during the British colonial time there have been claims for the land.
