Iqbal Ansari, one of the main litigants in the Ayodhya dispute case, after the Supreme Court's final verdict on Saturday, stated that "We will respect the Court's decision. One person wins, while the other loses in the Court. In the end, the Court's decision will be accepted." He further added that "they are completely satisfied with the Supreme Court's decision." When asked about where do they want the separate land, Ansari said, "We have not decided anything yet. The decision depends on the government. Whatever they decide, we will accept it."
While speaking to the media, Iqbal Ansari gave out a message to the world "to accept the decision with peace." Further, addressing to both the communities, he said, "My brothers, Hindus and Muslims, should not take any actions that would disrupt the peace and harmony of the country. We have said it earlier and we are saying it now too that we will accept the Court's decision."
Pronouncing the landmark judgement in the Ayodhya dispute case, the Supreme Court on November 9, Saturday, delivered a unanimous judgment in the title suit of the disputed area giving it to the Hindu parties for the construction of a temple. The SC directed the Centre to come up with a scheme within three months to set up a trust which will hand over the outer courtyard and inner courtyard of the site for construction of a temple. Apart from this, the SC stated that an alternate land of five acres will be allotted to Muslims for the liberty of constructing a mosque, either by the central government or the State government, in a suitable and prominent place in Ayodhya. Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi, while delivering the unanimous judgment, dismissed the claims of the Sunni Central Waqf Board and the Nirmohi Akhara. He also termed that the three-way division of the disputed land by the Allahabad HC in its 2010 verdict is wrong. The five-member bench of the Supreme Court comprised of justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan, S A Nazeer, and CJI Ranjan Gogoi.
