Can you put limelight on the dispute of Ram Janmabhoomi Babri Masjid at Ayodhya? 


The Ayodhya dispute is a political, historical and socio-religious debate in India, centered on a plot of land in the city of Ayodhya, located in Uttar Pradesh.  The main problem revolves around the access to a site traditionally regarded among Hindus to be the birth place of the Hindu lord Rama, the history and location of the Babri Mosque at the site, and whether a previous Hindu temple was demolished to create the mosque. 

The Babri Masjid was destroyed during a political rally which further turned into a political riot on 6th of December in 1992. A land title case was registered in the High Court of Allahabad, the verdict of which was announced on 30th of september 2010.

In the landmark hearing, the Allahabad High Court three judges ruled that the 2.77 acres of Ayodhya land will be devided into 3 parts, with 1/3rd going to the Raam Lalla for the construction of the Ram temple, other 1/3rd will be going to the Islamic Sunni Waqf Board and the remaining 1/3rd will go to a hindu religious denomination Nirmohi Akhara.
