The Supreme Court pronounced the much-awaited verdict in the protracted Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute case, handing over the disputed land to the central government for the development of a grand temple dedicated to Lord Ram. The Hindus have maintained that the disputed land in Ayodhya was the birthplace of Lord Ram, on which Mughal general Mir Baqi built a mosque in consonance with Babur. The apex court had granted 5-acres of land elsewhere to the Sunni Waqf Board on which they can build a mosque.
