NEW DELHI: The five-judge Constitutional bench of the Supreme Court on Saturday pronounced a unanimous judgment in the seven-decade-old Ram JanmabhoomiBabri Masjid land dispute case. Here are the key takeaways from the apex court judgment-

  1. SC has ordered the Centre to set up a trust to build a temple, while alloting alternative five acres of land for constructing a mosque.
  2. The apex court has ordered the Centre to formulate a scheme in three months to set up a board of trustees for the construction of a temple at the disputed structure.
  3. The SC has alotted the entire 2.77-acre disputed land for temple construction.
  4. The court has also ordered that suitable alternative land, measuring five acres, will be alloted for setting up the mosque. The land will be given to the Sunni Waqf Board.
  5. The SC ruled that the Allahabad high court judgment on the case in 2010 was wrong in dividing the disputed site into three parts.
  6. SC ruled that the Nirmohi Akhara suit was not maintainable and it has no shebait rights (priestly rights). However, the court directed that in the Board of Trustees that will be set up, the Nirmohi Akhara should be given appropriate representation.
  7. The claim of Shia Waqf Board against Sunni Board to Babri Masjid was dismissed.
  8. The SC’s directive to set up a Trust to construct the Ram temple at the disputed site virtually ousts the VHP-backed Ram Janmsthan Nyas from temple construction activities.
  9. The SC said that archaeological evidence cannot be brushed aside as conjecture and hypothesis. Archaeological evidence supports that the Babri Masjid was not constructed on vacant land but on a Hindu structure. However, the Archeological Survey of India findings did not say whether a Hindu temple was demolished to construct a mosque.
  10. The court also said that the destruction of the mosque in 1992 happened in breach of SC orders. The desecration of the mosque by placing idols in 1949 and its demolition was contrary to the law, it added.
