“Centre will hand over the disputed site to the board of trustees and a suitable alternative plot of land measuring 5 acres at Ayodhya will be given to Sunni Waqf Board,” the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi said while pronouncing the Ayodhya land dispute verdict on Friday.
“Under Article 142, SC directs in the scheme to be framed, Nirmohi Akhara to also get representation,” the CJI said.
“A suitable plot of land measuring 5 acres shall be given to Sunni Waqf Board either by the state or by the Centre,” the CJI added.
“Land to remain vested in statutory receiver till trust is formed. Trust to be formed in three months,” CJI Gogoi reiterated.
“Management of construction of the temple to be monitored by the trust,” Gogoi further said.
“Since the Babri mosque was brought down, Wrong committed must be limited,” Gogoi further added.
The CJI-led Constitution bench of the Supreme Court says that all forms of beliefs equal for Constitution.
“Constitution speaks through judges. Worship of inner courtyard continued by Hindus even when in possession,” the top court said while pronouncing the judgement.
The CJI-led bench further said, “For 325 years, from the construction of the mosque till 1857, Muslims have given no evidence of offering prayers at the disputed structure in exclusion of Hindus.”
“Destruction of the mosque in 1992 was in breach of SC order,” it added.
