    Ayodhya Verdict

    The Ayodhya case which spanned decades has finally been settled. In a historic judgement, a five-judge bench of the Supreme Court announced that the disputed 2.77 acre land in Ayodhya will go to the Hindus while Muslims will be given a suitable five-acre plot at an alternate location in the city for construction of the mosque.

    The verdict was pronounced by a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, comprising Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer.

    The bench, though ‘committed to protecting all faiths’ said that ‘the findings of the Archeological Survey of India can’t be disputed’. Babri Masjid was not built on vacant land. The apex court said the verdict is based on law and not on any religious faith.

    The Centre, which is in possession of the disputed land, directed to formulate a scheme within three months for a Board of Trustees for the construction of the Ram Mandir at the disputed site. The verdict recognized the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992 as a crime and has precluded any notion that the verdict allows fresh acts of vandalism against places of worship.

    Minutes after the verdict was pronounced, an outpour of reactions from litigants, advocates, political leaders surfaced. But, now that the verdict is out and the place has been allotted for both Ram Mandir and Babri Masjid.  We should welcome the verdict and work towards the development of the nation.

    There is no denying that religious rioting deters economic growth of a country. India needs to move beyond divisive politics on the basis of religion. Post the historic verdict, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also said that the Ayodhya verdict should not be seen as a victory or defeat of anyone. Modi said it’s time to strengthen the spirit of Rashtra Bhakti (patriotism). Indians should maintain peace and harmony and move on.
