Supreme Court Ayodhya Judgment Highlights: ‘One Judgment, Temple at Disputed Site, Alternative Land for Mosque’

November 9, 2019

Delivering its verdict in the politically-sensitive Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case in Ayodhya, the Supreme Court Saturday unanimously handed over the disputed land to the Ram Temple trust and said that the Sunni Waqf Board will be granted 5 acres of land in “suitable, prominent place in Ayodhya”.

It also directed the Centre to frame scheme under which it will constitute a trust within three months and hand over the inner and outer court to trust. The bench, also comprising Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer, further said that Ram Janambhoomi is not a juristic person.

Here are the prominent observations made by the Supreme Court

* Unanimous judgment on Ayodhya by five judges. Only one judgment.

* SC says it will be inappropriate for it to play role of theologian and interpret Hadees.

* SC says there should be alternate land given to Muslims to make good their loss of a mosque.

* Sunni Wakf Board to be granted 5 acres land in “suitable, prominent place in Ayodhya”.

Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid Case Verdict: Supreme Court Orders Allotment of Alternative Land To Muslims For Mosque

Nov 9, 2019

*It's a very balanced judgement and it is a victory for people of India, says senior advocate C S Vaidyanathan who appeared for deity in Ayodhya hearing.

*We are not satisfied with the judgement and will take a call on seeking review of the judgement, says Sunni Waqf Board.

*With the SC directing setting up of the Trust to construct Ram temple at the disputed site, it virtually ousts VHP-backed Ram Janmasthan Nyas from the temple activities.

*SC appreciates role of mediators Justice Kalifulla, ace mediator Sriram Panchu and Sri Ravishankar who came very close to settlement.

*Centre will hand over the disputed site to the Board of trustees for construction of temple at disputed site and a suitable alternative plot of land measuring 5 acres at Ayodhya will be given to Sunni Wakf Board. In the scheme by Board of trustees, appropriate representation be given to Nirmohi Akhara, says Supreme Court.

*SC orders allotment of alternative land to Muslims for setting up of a mosque while decreeing the disputed site in suit 5 filed by Deity. SC says Centre will formulate a scheme in 3 months to set up a board of trustees for construction of temple at the disputed structure.

*SC says Allahabad high court was wrong in dividing the disputed site into three parts.

*Desecration of mosque by placing idols in 1949 and demolition is contrary to law, the court says.

*Sunni Wakf board failed to make claim on adverse possession over the mosque as it remained a contested site between Hindus and Muslims, it says.

*Destruction of mosque in 1992 happened in breach of SC order, it says.

*For 325 years from construction of the mosque till 1857, Muslims have given no evidence of they offering prayers at the disputed structure innexclusion of Hindus, it says.

*SC says though there were obstructions Muslims continued to offer namaz inside the inner courtyard. So, the Muslims have not abandoned the mosque, it says. But documents show that prior to 1857 Hindus were not barred from worshipping in the inner courtyard. The railings segregating the outer and inner courtyard was made in 1857, it says. But Hindus always believed that the birthplace of Ram was in the inner courtyard of the mosque, Says SC.

*It is clearly established that while Muslims offered prayer inside the inner courtyard while the same was done by Hindus in the outer court yard, it says.

*Mere existence of a structure beneath the mosque cannot lead to a title today even if the SC finds that it was a Hindu temple, SC says.

*Act of placing idols inside the central dome in December 22-23, 1949 has been challenged by Sunni Wakf Board. SC says Sunni Wakf Board's suit is maintainable.

*SC must be circumspect in drawing negative inference on what the travellers did not see, it says.

*Accounts of travellers and historians mention about faith of Hindus that the place is birthplace of Lord Ram is mentioned. The account of travellers has to be read with circumspection, it says.

*Whether belief and faith is justified is beyond the ken of judicial scrutiny, says SC.

*Faith and belief of Ayodhya being birthplace of Ram is undisputed so as that of Muslims to worship at the mosque, the apex court says.

*Title of the land can be decided only on legal evidence, SC says.

*There is adequate material for ASI to come to the conclusion that Babri Masjid was not built on vacant land, says SC.

* ASI credential is beyond doubt and it's findings cannot be neglected, says CJI.

*Places of Worship Act reaffirms commitment of India to protect the interest all religious community, says CJI.

*It is inappropriate for court to get into area of theology, says CJI

*SC dismisses plea of Shia Waqf Board against Sunni Board on claim to Babri Masjid.

*The judgement is unanimous, says CJI.

*All five judges put their signature on the judgement.

*CJI Ranjan Gogoi is reading out the verdict.

*Supreme Court to announce Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case verdict at 10.30 am.

* Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the Supreme Court verdict in Ayodhya case on Saturday will not be a victory or defeat for anyone and urged people to ensure that the judgment gives strength to India's tradition of peace, unity and amity.

"The Supreme Court's verdict on Ayodhya is coming tomorrow. For the past few months, the Supreme Court was hearing the matter and the entire country was watching it with curiosity. During this time, efforts made by various sections to maintain peace and harmony are quite praiseworthy," he said.

* Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid dispute was a title suit — ownership of land — between Hindus and the Muslim parties over 2.77 acre of land. The Hindu parties claim that the disputed site is the birthplace of Lord Ram which was demolished in 1528 by Mughal emperor Babur who constructed the Babri Masjid.

* There are three parties fighting the case in the Supreme Court, namely, Ram Lalla Virajman, Nirmohi Akhara and Sunni Waqf Board. The Nirmohi Akhara has been the shebait - manager of devasthan- of the Lord historically. The Sunni Waqf Board is the representative of the Muslim parties. And the deity, Ram Lalla, came into the litigation in 1989 through next best friend Deoki Nandan Agarwal, a former judge of the Allahabad high court who later joined the VHP.

Faith Of Hindus That Lord Ram Was Born In Ayodhya Is 'Undisputed': CJI Gogoi

Nov 9, 2019

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Saturday said the faith of Hindus that Lord Ram was born at the said site in Ayodhya is "undisputed".

"Hindus consider Ayodhya as the birthplace of Lord Ram. They have religious sentiments. Hindus have faith and belief that Lord Ram was born under the dome. The faith of Hindus that Lord Ram was born here is undisputed," Chief Justice Gogoi said while reading out the verdict.

He said that the titles cannot be decided on faith and belief but on the claims. "Historical accounts indicate belief of Hindus that Ayodhya was the birthplace of Lord Ram," Chief Justice Gogoi said.

He said that the evidence shows that 'Ram Chabutra' and 'Sita Rasoi' were worshipped by the Hindus before the British invaded.

"Evidence in the records show that Hindus were in the possession of the outer court of the disputed land," Chief Justice Gogoi said.

He further said that credentials provided by the Archaeological Survey of India are beyond doubt and its findings can't be neglected.

A five-judge constitution bench presided by Chief Justice Gogoi will shortly pronounce the verdict on a batch 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 between right-wing party Hindu Mahasabha, a sect of Hindu monks Nirmohi Akhara and Muslim Waqf Board over 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya.

The dispute is expected to come to an end with the decision of the top court later today.

Nov 9, 2019

* Archaeological evidence cannot be brushed aside as conjecture and hypothesis. Archaeological evidence supports that Babri Masjid not constructed on vacant land but on a Hindu structure.

* The finding of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) "cannot be neglected" and the title of the land can only be decided on "legal evidence".

* The ASI finding does not say whether a Hindu temple was demolished to construct a mosque.

* A suit cannot be decided merely on the basis of ASI findings. The title of the land must be decided as per the law.

* The court said that the destruction of the mosque in 1992 happened in breach of SC order. Desecration of the mosque by placing idols in 1949 and demolition is contrary to law, it added.

* The 2010 Allahabad high court verdict, which divided the land into three parts, was "wrong".

This is Indian Secularism for you.

  • As a Muslim, I think that the Babri Masjid property should be returned to the Hindus with an apology for the totally non-Islamic and tyrannical behavior of the Mogul Empire. I pray for peace between Hindus and Muslims.
