Supreme Court to pronounce the verdict in the Ayodhya title suit on Saturday morning

The original title suit over the Ram Janmabhoomi was filed in 1950, seeking permission to offer puja at the site

The Supreme Court will deliver the much-anticipated judgement on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case on Saturday. A notice issued by the Additional Resgistrar of the Supreme Court said that the five-judge bench will pronounce the judgment of the Ayodhya title suit at 10:30 tomorrow morning.

The Supreme Court bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi and comprising justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S A Nazeer had reserved its judgement on October 16 after a marathon day-to-day hearing lasting forty days. The apex court was hearing a bunch of petitions filed by both Hindu and Muslim parties against the Allahabad High Court judgement which had split the disputed site equally, among 3 parties, two Hindu parties and one Muslim party. The high court had given one-third of the 2.77-acre site to Hindu Mahasabha, one-third to Nirmohi Akhara, and one-third to Sunni Waqf Board.


The High Court had agreed that disputed plot was the birthplace of Rama as per the faith and belief of Hindus, and that the Babri Masjid was built after the demolition of a Hindu temple. Excavations done by ASI on the orders of High Court had found that a grand temple existed under the ruins of Babri Masjid, which was demolished by karsevaks on 6th December 1992.

The original title suit over the Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya was filed in 1950, seeking permission to offer puja at the site. This was done after idols of Ram and Sita had ‘mysteriously’ appeared inside the Babri mosque in December 1949, following which the premises was locked fearing communal tension, but the idols were not removed. In 1959, Nirmohi Akhara filed another petition seeking direction to hand over the charge of the disputed site to themselves. After that another suit was filed by Sunni Waqf Board seeking possession of the site.

All the suits were clubbed together by the Allahabad High Court and gave its verdict in September 2010. The High Court had given the site of the Ramlala idol to the party representing Ram Lalla Virajman which is Hindu Mahasabha, the site of Sita Rasoi and Ram Chabutara were given to Nirmohi Akhara, and the rest of the site was given to Sunni Waqf Board. All the three parties had appealed against the division of disputed land in the Supreme Court, and now the apex court will deliver its judgement tomorrow morning.

The administration has been taking various precautinery meassures to prevent any tension as the verdict was expected to be delivered before 17th November, the date when CJI Gogoi retires. Now after the announcement the the judgement will come tomorrow, Uttar Pradesh government has ordered that all schools, colleges, educational institutions and training centres in the state will remain closed from 9th November to 11th November.
