Patna : In its historic and landmark verdict, a five-member Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court (SC) on November 9, 2019, cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya, and directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.
Aa bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan of India (CJI) Gogoi, in one of the most important judgements in India’s history, put an end to the more than a century old dispute that has torn the social fabric of the nation.
The bench, also comprising Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer, said possession of the disputed 2.77 acre land rights will handed over to the deity Ram Lalla, who is one of the three litigants in the case. The possession, however, will remain with a central government receiver. It was a unanimous verdict, read by CJP Gogoi.
The SC said the mosque should be constructed at a prominent site and a trust should be formed within three months for the construction of the temple at the site many Hindus believe Lord Ram was born
