After a long 28-year court battle, India’s Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Babri Masjid and the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, ordering the construction of a temple on the disputed land and giving Muslims an alternative site for the mosque.
A five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi unanimously ruled on the temple-mosque dispute and asked the Muslim side to be given an alternative five acres of land to build a mosque at a prominent location inside Ayodhya. ۔
The court had directed the Center and the state government of Uttar Pradesh to manage the alternative land.
