Judgment of Supreme Court of India solely to determine ownership of land in Ayodhya

"According to sources in the Embassy of India, the Supreme Court of India’s judgment of 9 November 2019 on the title suit of land in Ayodhya brings closure to a longstanding dispute which began in 1950 between the litigants", the Indian embassy to Azerbaijan told AzVision.az.

The judgment is solely to determine the ownership of the land. The five Member Bench of the Supreme court has based their judgment on law and not on faith. The Supreme Court has given the Title Suit to Ram Lala Virajman and also directed the Government to allocate five acres of land in Ayodhya to the other Party, Sunni Wakf Board for building a Mosque.

The dispute has a long history dating back to the 17th  and 18th centuries and there are legal records to show that petitions were filed before District Judges under the British colonial government before Independence of India.

On the process followed to arrive at the judgment, the Supreme Court of India had considered pieces of evidence including the report of survey and excavation on the site by the Archaeological Survey of India, historical records and Government records from British Colonial Period and evidence presented by all claimants of the Title Suit. The Constitution of India guarantees equal freedoms of faith, belief and worship for all religious communities. India has a strong independent judiciary and that there is no possibility of the Supreme Court Judgment on the land in Ayodhya to become a precedent for any other future claim as there is an act of Parliament which prohibits any change in the religious and denominational character of a place of worship as it existed on 15 August 1947(Indian independence).
