134 years after the legal dispute first began to be heard in the courts, "Enough is enough! #AyodhyaHearing must conclude by 5 pm today", says the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of India.

134 years.
The new Indian vocation appears to be ordering people to not celebrate the Ayodhya verdict if it goes in their favour.

This when the same Indians are perfectly fine with celebrating the supremacy of a religion, of a god, over other religions and other gods. Every single day.
I'll tell you what I am celebrating - that I live in a country where a billion have, in effect, left it to five to decide the weight of their religious belief.

How much more open and mature can one get. India is going to write her history with the grammar of justice not anarchy.
It took 490 years for an historical injustice to be corrected. But corrected it has been.

यतो धर्मस्ततो जयः Where there is Dharma, there is Victory :The inscription under the Supreme Court emblem.

THIS, is why I love my India.
When Dr KK Muhammed was told he was going to be suspended for making public that he had discovered temple remnants inside Babri, he replied, in Sanskrit: Lokasamgramevapi Sampasyan Kartumarhasi. Swadharme nidhanam shreya.

I spoke the truth. Death is preferable while on duty.

Today is the day when India wrote her history with the grammar of justice, not anarchy.

My summing up on @TimesNow. #RamMandirInAyodhya
The 1891 ASI Report that was cited by one of the Supreme Court judges yesterday (

Mir Khan built a masjid on the Janmasthanam during the reign of Babar, which still bears his name. This old temple must have been a very fine one...…
Supreme Court accepting the 2003 ASI report as proof of a large temple of Hindu religious origin whose foundations were used to build a mosque over it ( ).

The @ASIGoI team of scientists and archaeologists need to be thanked for their phenomenal work.
The SC has wilfully ratified (pp 116-125) the Places of Worship Act, 1991 that obligates maintaining ALL religious places as they were on Aug 15, 1947.

Historical injustice of Kashi can now never be addressed unless parliament overrides BOTH, the 1991 Act and this SC judgment.
"Credit must also go to a billion Indians who placed their faith in the hands of five judges. This by itself is the greatest act of tolerance and inclusion."

The Majesty of Justice. Brilliant piece by @RShivshankar.…
Someone should file a review petition imploring the hon'ble Supreme court to retract its wilful ratification in its Ayodhya verdict, of the Places of Worship Act, 1991.

A legal recourse to correct historical injustices must not be denied in a democracy.
