Indian Court Rules in Favor of Hindu Temple on Disputed Land

Indian Court Rules in Favor of Hindu Temple on Disputed Land

Saturday, 09 November 2019 01:38 AM

NEW DELHI (AP) — India's Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a Hindu temple on a disputed religious ground and ordered that alternative land be given to Muslims.

The dispute over land ownership has been one of the country's most contentious issues.

The 16th-century Babri Masjid mosque was destroyed by Hindu hard-liners in December 1992.

The Supreme Court says in a judgment on Saturday that 5 acres (2.02 hectares) of land will be allotted to the Muslim community in the northern Indian town of Ayodhya.

The disputed land will be given to a board of trustees for the construction of a temple for Hindu god Ram.
