All Review Petitions For Ayodhya Verdict Dismissed by Supreme Court

New Delhi: On November 9th 2019 the supreme court of India gave a decision for the long-disputed land in Ayodhya (Uttar Pradesh). The issues spun around the control of a site customarily respected among Hindus to be the origin of their god Rama, the history and area of the Babri Masjid at the site, and whether a past Hindu temple was crushed to make a mosque. 

The mosque there, the Babri Masjid, was crushed during a political meeting which transformed into a mob on 6 December 1992. A resulting land title case was heard in the Allahabad High Court, the decision of which was articulated on 30 September 2010. In the judgment, the three judges decided that the 2.77 acres of Ayodhya land be divided into three sections, with 33% to the Hindu Maha Sabha for the Ram temple popularly known as Ram Lalla, 33% to the Sunni Waqf Board, and the rest 33% going to Nirmohi Akhara, a Hindu religious group. While this decision was not consistent that the contested structure was developed after the destruction of the temple, it agreed that a sanctuary structure originated before the mosque at the equivalent site.
