Here are top highlights of the SC landmark verdict you need to know!

Government run-trust

The disputed land has been put under the shade of a government-run trust for the construction of the temple whereas, the 5-acre plot has been a ‘prominent site’ that has been given for a mosque. The religious-political verdict by the apex court cast a shadow on the country for more than 10 years that has been dangling over a piece of land in Ayodhya where 16th-century Mosque stood, the same mosque razed by Hindu activists claiming the place as the Ram Janambhoomi. "The right of Ram Lalla to the disputed property is subject to the maintenance of peace and law and order and tranquility," the court said.

The court directed the board of trust run by the central government to formulate a scheme for building and managing temples.

Construction directions

The 5 judge constitution said that the mosque should be constructed on a ‘prominent site’ and a trust should be formed in 3 months for the construction of the temple.

Archeological Survey of India report

During the pronouncement of the SC verdict by the judges, they referred to an ASI report that confirmed that a structure underneath the mosque was discovered but it was vague enough to identify.

Sunni Waqf Board failed

The Supreme Court mentioned that Hindus prayed outside the courtyard in the lawns while the Sunni Waqf Board failed to establish its case.

PM’s safety mark

The Prime Minister went on to twitter and said that the "Ayodhya verdict will not be anybody's victory or loss", adding that it was the priority of the country's citizens to maintain harmony. "I appeal to countrymen that it should be our priority to strengthen our tradition of maintaining peace and harmony after the Ayodhya verdict. In the run-up to Ayodhya verdict, efforts have been made by various people and organizations to maintain a harmonious atmosphere. We have to maintain amity even after Ayodhya verdict," PM Modi mentioned in another tweet.
