The Supreme Court of India, in a historic judgement, has ruled that the Central Government is to set up a trust to build a temple on the dispute site, within three months.
This is how Twitter reacted to the historic verdict.
Essentially #AYODHYAVERDICT hands over the disputed 2.77 acres to Hindus. Orders Govt to allot alternate site of 5 acres for mosque.— Sumanth Raman (@sumanthraman) November 9, 2019
सभी पक्षों की दलीलें सुनने के बाद SC की बेंच के पाँचों जजों ने एकमत से आज अपना निर्णय दिया। हम SC के फ़ैसले का स्वागत करते हैं। कई दशकों के विवाद पर आज SC ने निर्णय दिया। वर्षों पुराना विवाद आज ख़त्म हुआ। मेरी सभी लोगों से अपील है कि शांति एवं सौहार्द बनाए रखें— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) November 9, 2019
What is most heartening about #AYODHYAVERDICT is the relative absence of shrill political tu-tu-main-main among political parties. Perhaps netas have become more mature than they have been since 1990s. The #AyodhyaCase must now be given closure and move towards harmony— Sagarika Ghose (@sagarikaghose) November 9, 2019
Welcome Verdict -Now time to move forward on path of harmony & peace #AYODHYAVERDICT— Jaiveer Shergill (@JaiveerShergill) November 9, 2019
Don't take it as a Victory or a Loss. Be humble on this occasion.— Krishna (@Atheist_Krishna) November 9, 2019
All Hindus should be Thankful to Advocate K Parsaran ,92 years Old who is Leading Counsel appearing for Ram Lalla Virajman who argued for Ram Mandir in SC. Dhanyavad Mahodaya 🙏#AYODHYAVERDICT #RamMandir #MandirwahiBanega pic.twitter.com/dkgmjbjJi1— Chirag.cp 🇮🇳 (@Chiragcp58) November 9, 2019
SC : Title suit has to be decided based on evidence, not faith— seemi pasha (@seemi_pasha) November 9, 2019
SC : No evidence of Hindu temple being destroyed to build Babri Masjid
SC verdict : we give the entire plot to the Modi govt to build a Ram temple
Does the verdict flow from the observations? #AYODHYAVERDICT
Brave and bold decision . This day will forever belong to their Lordships, for better or worse. Five learned judges - one crucial judgement that will impact our future, one way or the other.Time to stay POSITIVE ! #AYODHYAVERDICT— Shobhaa De (@DeShobhaa) November 9, 2019
SC hands inner sanctum of disputed site to central govt & the trust it must set up within 3 months #AYODHYAVERDICT— Minhaz Merchant (@MinhazMerchant) November 9, 2019
Not only the most historic but also one of the the balanced verdicts. India is county with multiple religions and beliefs and we must not only accept but also welcome the apex court verdict to set an example for the rest of the world. #AYODHYAVERDICT— Pradeep Bhandari(प्रदीप भंडारी) (@pradip103) November 9, 2019
Disputed site is given to Ramjanmabhoomi Nyas, so title goes to temple. Govt to set up trust of how to build temple. Sunni Waqf Board gets alternate 5 acres in Ayodhya. #AYODHYAVERDICT— Smita Prakash (@smitaprakash) November 9, 2019
Ram Janambhoomi Trust gets control of the site, mosque to be built at an entirely alternative plot of land. The Supreme Court legally paves the way for a Ram Mandir in Ayodhya and closes, legally, one of the most volatile conflicts of Modern India #AYODHYAVERDICT— barkha dutt (@BDUTT) November 9, 2019
While a majority welcomed the decision, a few people wanted to ask a few more questions.
2. * SC doesn't say that repossession is "okay" but has anyway rewarded the alleged vandals who destroyed the mosque... With the land.— Anoo Bhuyan (@AnooBhu) November 9, 2019
Implicitly and essentially, repossession by criminal acts is being rewarded by the Supreme Court. #BabriMasjid
The SC said that Muslims couldn’t prove they were rightful owners of the land on which the #BabriMasjid stood. In other words, the illegal demolition of the mosque was legal?— Irena Akbar (@irenaakbar) November 9, 2019
Mandir wahin banega...— bhaavna arora (@BhaavnaArora) November 9, 2019
So Wahin was the key word #AYODHYAVERDICT
A legal team will study the verdict of the Supreme Court in the coming days and both parties have agreed to respect the decision taken by the highest judicial body in the country.
