CJI Ranjan Gogoi

The Honourable Supreme Court has given its verdict on the Ayodhya issue. This verdict shouldn’t be seen as a win or loss for anybody tweeted PM Modi

A decade-long legal dispute is being fought by Hindu Mahasabha, 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.

A five-judge bench of the Supreme Court pronounced its historic verdict on a batch of a petition against the 2010 Allahabad High Court order in the sensitive Ramjanmbhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case.

The security arrangements in the national capital and in states across the country have been beefed to the max ahead of the verdict.

The Allahabad High Court in 2010 had prescribed a three-way division of the disputed land but the verdict failed to satisfy the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla, the parties involved in the dispute.

The judgment will be pronounced on a non-working day by a Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and comprising Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer.

A Bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi will pass verdict on a batch of pleas challenging the constitutional validity of Finance Act, 2017 on the ground that it was passed by the Parliament as a Money Bill.

The hearing in the Supreme Court in Ayodhya case witnessed dramatic scenes today as Senior Counsel Rajeev Dhavan tore pages of certain documents handed over to him by one of the Hindu parties.

It was hearing appeals challenging the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict, which ordered equal division of the 2.77-acre of disputed land in Ayodhya among the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Ram Lalla.

At the time of filing this story the Supreme Court has wrapped up hearing in the case and reserved the order in the connection.
