#AYODHYAVERDICT: The doors of CJI Courtroom opened, crowd of lawyers and scribes have rushed in.

The pushing and shoving reached dangerously risky levels.
The Bench assembles.

Pronouncement of Judgment commences.

CJI Gogoi: "we would request silence please"
Judges are signing the judgment.
The Ayodhya Judgment will be an unanimous judgment. Pronouncement of judgment to last for half an hour

"Court should preserve balance", Supreme Court.

"Mosque built by Mir Baqi on order of Babur".

"Idols were placed in the mosque in 1949", Supreme Court
This Court set up under Constitutional scheme should defer from interfering with faith and belief of worshippers.

Secularism basic feature of the Constitution.
Bench now describing the Suits and the reliefs claimed

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #BabriMasjid
Suit 3 filed by Nirmohi Akhara is governed by Article 120 of Limitation Act and is barred by limitation, Supreme Court
The claim of Nirmohi Akhara is only of management. Nirmohi Akhara is not a Shabait, rules Supreme Court
#Breaking: Ram Janma Bhoomi not a juristic person, holds Supreme Court.

#RamJanmbhoomi #RamJanmabhoomi #AYODHYAVERDICT
There is adequate material in ASI report to conclude the following:

Babri Masjid not constructed on vacant land. There was a structure underlying the disputed structure.

The underlying structure was not an Islamic structure, Supreme Court.

@ravi_raghunath ASI refrained from recording a finding on whether mosque was built after demolishing a Hindu temple, Supreme Court observes.

#BabriMasjid #AYODHYAVERDICT #RamJanmbhoomi
@ravi_raghunath Finding of title cannot be based only on Expert report of ASI, Supreme Court.

Title to the land should be decided based on settled legal principles, Supreme Court.
@ravi_raghunath Hindus believe that Lord Ram was born right below the central dome of the disputed structure, SC

Both Hindu and Muslim witnesses indicate that Hindus and Muslims were offering prayers at the disputed site, SC

@ravi_raghunath Whether a belief is justified is beyond judicial inquiry. Once faith is established, courts should defer to it: Supreme Court

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaJudgment
@ravi_raghunath Title should be decided based on evidence in a court of law. Title cannot be established based on faith and belief, SC.

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaJudgment
@ravi_raghunath Suit 4 of Sunni Board is a suit for possession and is covered by Article 142 of Limitation Act.

So limitation is 12 years and Suit 4 is within limitation, Supreme Court.

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaJudgment
@ravi_raghunath Possession as asserted by Muslims cannot meet the threshold of adverse possession: Supreme Court

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaJudgment
@ravi_raghunath From documentary evidence it emerges that prior to 1857, there was no exclusion of Hindus from worshipping at the site, Supreme Court.

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaJudgment
@ravi_raghunath The outer courtyard became a focal point of worshipping by Hindus

Riots of 1934 indicate that the possession of inner courtyard became a matter of serious contention

Muslims have not been able to establish possessory title to inner courtyard, Supreme Court.
@ravi_raghunath The Muslims have not brought evidence to show possessory title, there is no evidence to show the offer of Namaz by Muslims to the exclusion of Hindus.

Hindus have been able to establish unimpeded possession of outer courtyard, Supreme Court.

@ravi_raghunath The disputed site is one composite plot.

The inner courtyard is a contested site. Evidence indicates no abandonment of mosque by Muslims, SC

@ravi_raghunath Destruction of mosque against rule of law, Supreme Court.

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaJudgment
@ravi_raghunath Both Suit 4 of Sunni Board and suit 5 of Ram Lalla have to be decreed and relief should moulded.

Every judge of this court has the task to uphold Constitution, SC

Cannot differentiate between one religion and another, Supreme Court.

@ravi_raghunath On balance of probabilities, clear evidence that Hindus worshipped in Outer Courtyard

As regards Inner Courtyard, no evidence by Muslims to show exclusive possession by them prior to 1857: Supreme Court

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaJudgment
@ravi_raghunath #Breaking: Alternate land to be allotted to Muslims to construct mosque, Supreme Court orders.
@ravi_raghunath Final directions:

Suit 3 by Nirmohi Akhara dismissed as barred by limitation.

Suit 4 and suit 5 within limitation.

Central Govt should within 3 months formulate a scheme envisaging setting up of Trust

Possession of inner and outer courtyards to be handed over to the Trust.
@ravi_raghunath A suitable plot of land measuring 5 acres to be handed over to Sunni Waqf Board either by Central Government or State Government.

Sunni Wakf Board at liberty to construct a mosque at the allotted land.

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaJudgment
@ravi_raghunath The scheme envisaging setting up of Trust should provide for construction of Temple.

#AYODHYAVERDICT #AyodhyaHearing #AyodhyaJudgment
