The much-awaited ruling, Ayodhya verdict was finally heard by the Supreme Court of India, today, November 9, 2019. The apex court’s five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI), Ranjan Gogoi, issued the judgement on the land dispute. According to the ruling, SC has handed over the possession of the site to the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas, permitting them to build a temple. But that would be done only under one condition. The temple can be constructed at the location by giving the Sunni Central Waqf Board a 5-acre alternative land in Ayodhya for building a mosque. People lauded the move. Taking to Twitter and praising SC for its ‘fair’ judgement, they ask for communal harmony and peace to be maintained across the nation. Highlights of the Supreme Court Judgement in the Ayodhya Case.
This was the most crucial decision to be made in the country, considering the communal riots we saw in the past. Since morning, people were taking to Twitter, appealing for peace and communal harmony. Again, the government has tightened security in all the regions. Schools were shut in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Karnataka and several other states, as a precautionary measure. Ayodhya Verdict: WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter And Other Social Media Platforms Being Monitored by Police to Curb Fake News.
While ruling, the Bench said that the mosque built in 1527 was not constructed on vacant land. And a structure existed before the Babri Masjid was built was “not Islamic.” The conclusion was derived from the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) report submitted in 2003. The top court also noted that the Allahabad High Court was mistaken in dividing the disputed site into three territories. The SC has directed the central government to form a trust which will take over the possession of the land. Twitter is satisfied with the decision and is calling for peace to be maintained across. #HinduMuslimBhaiBhai Top Trend on Twitter As Netizens Appeal for Peace After Ayodhya Verdict by Supreme Court.

The Ayodhya title suit verdict came nine years after the judgement of 2:1 of the Allahabad High Court that ordered a three-way division of the land. The land was divided among three parties—Ram Lalla, Sunni Waqf Board and the Nirmohi Akhara. The Lucknow Bench at the time had ruled that Hindus and Muslims would be joint title holders of the disputed land.
