"We have always maintained that we will accept the verdict of the Supreme Court. Muslims of India have also believed so and they have accepted the decision of the top court," Bukhari told ANI.

"People have suffered loss and faced difficulties due to this dispute. With the Supreme Court's verdict today, people are relieved now. I hope the country will move towards the path of development," he said.

A five-judge constitution bench presided by Chief Justice Gogoi and comprising Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer passed the order on a bunch of petitions against an order of the Allahabad High Court which trifurcated the site among Ramlalla Virajman, Sunni Central Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara.
