Mohammad Kaif, a former Indian batsman, welcomed the Ayodhya verdict and said that "Idea of India is much bigger than any ideology." Lauding the Supreme Court's judgement, the 38-year-old former cricketer also hoped everyone will be happy with the outcome and prayed for peace, love and harmony to prevail across the nation. In a landmark judgement, the Supreme Court-led five-judge constitutional panel on November 9 unanimously ruled that the disputed land in Ayodhya belonged to the Ramjanmabhoomi Nyas and that a separate 5-acre land will be allocated to the Waqf Board to construct a mosque.

Reacting to the Ayodhya verdict, Kaif put out a tweet praising Judges Abdul Nazeer and KK Muhammed -- both were part of the five-bench constitutional bench that gave the Ayodhya verdict -- for their role in the historic decision. “This can happen only in India. Where a Justice Abdul Nazeer is a part of a unanimous verdict. And a KK Muhammed gives historical evidences. Idea of India is much bigger than any ideology can ever comprehend. May everyone be happy, I pray for peace, love & harmony,” said Kaif in his message.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court also ruled that possession of Ayodhya's contested property will vest in a trust to be formed by the Central government and also directed that representation in the trust may be given to Nirmohi Akhara, a litigant in the case. The five Judge bench presided over by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi directed that a suitable plot of land measuring five acres be allocated to Sunni Central Waqf Board to construct a mosque.
The land may be allotted by the Centre "out of the acquired land" or by the state government at a suitable place in Ayodhya. "It is necessary to provide restitution to the Muslim community for the unlawful destruction of their place of worship," it stated. The apex court gave the Centre three months time to formulate a scheme to set up a trust which will helm the construction of a temple at the site."
The Central Government shall make necessary provisions in regard to the functioning of trust or body including on matters relating to the management of the trust, powers of the trustees including the construction of a temple," the judgment stated.
