The five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court has pronounced the verdict on the long-standing Ayodhya land dispute case. The court has said that the Ram Temple will be built on the 2.77 acres disputed land while a separate land will be given by the government for the mosque at an alternate 'suitable' location. The apex court said the mosque should be constructed at a "prominent site" and a trust should be formed within three months for the construction of the temple at the site many Hindus believe Lord Ram was born.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday had appealed to the country to maintain calm and had said the judgement in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute is not a matter of victory or defeat.
