India top court rejects temple verdict review pleas

Thank you for your reading and interest in the news India top court rejects temple verdict review pleas and now with details

Aden - Yasmin Abdel Azim - New Delhi: India’s Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed petitions seeking a review of its recent ruling in favour of the building of a Hindu temple on a disputed site in northern India where a 16th century mosque was torn down by Hindu hard-liners in 1992.

The petitioners, representing the Muslim litigants, had said they were aggrieved by the court’s decision and sought reconsideration of the verdict.

The November ruling was seen as a major victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu-nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party, which has promised to build a Hindu temple at the demolished site as part of its election strategy for decades.

The court said Muslims would be given 5 acres (2 hectares) of land at an alternative site.

The dispute over the site of the Babri Masjid mosque in the town of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh state has lasted more than a century. Hindus believe Ram, the warrior deity, was born at the site and that Mughal Muslim invaders built a mosque on top of a temple there.

A December 1992 riot following the destruction of the mosque sparked communal violence in which about 2,000 people were killed, mostly Muslims.
