A 5-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court ruled on the Ayodhya case on Saturday. Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi read the verdict for 45 minutes and said that a trust should be created for the construction of the temple and its plan should be prepared in 3 months. The court ordered the disputed land of 2.77 acres to be given to Ramlala Virajman and asked that the Muslim side be allotted 5 acres of alternative land for the construction of the mosque.
CJI Gogoi said that Hindu-Muslims consider the disputed place as the birthplace, but the ownership cannot be decided by faith. The bench said that the demolished structure is the birthplace of Lord Rama, this belief of Hindus is unquestioned.
