New Delhi [India], Nov 9 (ANI): Union minister Prakash Javadekar on Saturday hailed the Supreme Court verdict in the Ayodhya land dispute case, saying the judgment is historic, balanced and judicious.
Taking to Twitter, he said, "The judgement of the Supreme Court on #Ayodhya is historic, balanced & judicious. I am sure that everyone will welcome it."
He also spoke to media in New Delhi and said, "All have been said by my leaders. I will just say Jai Shri Ram."
The Supreme Court on Saturday directed the Centre to give five acres of suitable land to Sunni Waqf Board and make necessary arrangements for the construction of the temple by forming a trust.
"Central government shall form in three to four months a scheme for setting up of a trust. They shall make necessary arrangements for the management of trust and construction of the temple," Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said while reading out the verdict.
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 between the parties -- Ramlalla Virajman, Sunni Central Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara.
A decade-long legal dispute was fought by right-wing party Hindu Mahasabha, a sect of Hindu monks Nirmohi Akhara and Muslim Waqf Board over 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya. (ANI)
