NEW DELHI: In a clear biased judgement, top Indian court on Saturday ordered to hand over the disputed Babri Mosque land to the Hindus. However, a five members bench directed to allot Muslims an alternate land as a replacement for the destroyed Babri Mosque.
Amid tight security measures across the country, the Supreme Court of India announced the verdict on the ownership of a centuries-old religious site claimed by both majority Hindus and Muslims.
Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi remarked that the verdict was unanimous.
He observed the Muslim community should not be deprived of a structure. They will get alternative site for a mosque, he added.
Experts said It is likely that the Muslim community will move the court for a review decision.
It is to be mentioned here that the Babri Masjid decision has been given on the day when Kartarpur Corridor is being opened.
