Babri Masjid land awarded to Hindus, Muslims to get new land area

A Supreme Court of India awarded the 2.77 acres of disputed land in Ayodhya to Hindus for construction of Ram Temple.

The land where the Babri Masjid stood for centuries is now empty, with rubbles and remnants of the masjid left as a reminder by the looters.

But to compensate the Muslims, 5 acres of land is granted to them for the construction of a new Masjid.

The Supreme Court made its ruling on the basis of entitlements for the Muslims and better evidence the Babri land was Hindu.

The 5 acres would be handed over to the Sunni Central Wakf Board to build a Masjid. The long-standing dispute has thus been settled but some are still grumbling.

The main concern among Muslims is the location of the 5 acres of land remains unsettled. No one knows where is this plot of land.

No indication is given as to when the location will be decided upon and when it will be handed over to the Waqf board, says some Muslims. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The Sunni Waqf Board, which is to get the land, is also unclear if it will accept the land and its decision too could depend on where the government grants it.

But it will not appeal against the judgement.

The Waqf Board signed a statement relinquishing its rights over the Babri Masjid land.

But it says it never agreed to accept a Masjid out a land area which it acquired. The land area is 63 acres.

According to Economic Times, Maulana Salman Hussain Nadvi of the Nadwa College met chief minister Yogi Adityanath in Lucknow on Monday as part of a 15-member Muslim delegation and told him that the allotted land should also house an Islamic University besides a mosque. 

The Supreme Court, however, condemned the demolition of the mosque on December 6, 1992.

It observes that they “constituted a serious violation of the rule of law”.

“The ouster of the Muslims on that occasion was not through any lawful authority but through an act which was calculated to deprive them of their place of worship,” said the SC.

“The entire structure of the mosque was brought down in a calculated act of destroying a place of public worship. The Muslims have been wrongly deprived of a mosque which had been constructed 450 years ago,” it added. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
