New Delhi, November 9: A five-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, will deliver its verdict in the politically sensitive Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi title dispute case today.

The Supreme Court reserved the judgement on October 16 after a marathon hearing of 40 days. Prior to the day-to-day hearing, a court-appointed mediation panel held talks between Hindu and Muslim parties to develop a consensus in the Ayodhya case. However, the talks failed reportedly because of the hardline stand taken by Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind and VHP-backed Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas. The Ayodhya dispute began way back in 1853 when the first incident of communal violence over the Ayodhya issue was recorded.
