Ayodhya verdict: Disputed land to be divided into 3 parts

An Indian court on Thursday ruled by majority that the disputed land in Ayodhya be divided into three parts to be distributed among three communities.
The Allahabad High Court has divided the ownership of the disputed site into three parts: Ram Lalla idol site to Ram, Nirmohi Akhara gets Sita Rasoi and Ram Chabutara, Sunni Wakf Board gets the rest.

“Justice D V Sharma decreed the title suit in favor of Hindus,” said lawyer K N Bhatt, who represented the party on behalf of ´Ram Lalla´.
Status quo will be maintained at the disputed site in Ayodhya for three months, claimed lawyers Ravi Shanker Prasad and K N Bhatt.
Justice S U Khan ruled that the disputed land belongs to both the communities, said lawyers.
India had been awaiting its Ayodhya moment since the last 18 years now, after the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992 that placed the country on a communal volcano which has periodically erupted from time to time.

Senior BJP leader and lawyer representing the Hindu groups claimed that majority of the three-member bench of the Allahabad High Court’s Lucknow bench has upheld that Lord Ram was born in the disputed site which would be divided in three parts-of which one with the idol of Lord Ram would go to the Hindus and one to the Muslims and a third to Nirmohi Akhara.

But the status quo of the site would be maintained till it was divided.

Prasad said the suit of the Sunni Waqf Board was rejected.

The court said the idol of Ram existed on the site before

“I appeal to the Muslims to accept the verdict,” Prasad said.

After a 60-year-wait and loss of over 2000 lives in the worst communal riots of independent India in 1992 following the demolition of the Babri mosque, the Allahabad High Court on Thursday delivered a verdict on the Ayodhya title suit.
