After the Supreme Court declared its landmark verdict in the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi - Babri Masjid land dispute case on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing the nation said the way in which the whole country has accepted the verdict reflects the archaic culture, traditions and sense of harmony of India. PM Modi said, "After the verdict, the way every class, every community, people of every sect and the whole country has accepted it with open heart, reflects the archaic culture, traditions and sense of harmony of India."

'125 crore citizens of India are creating a new history'

Prime Minister Modi continued, "India is known for its unity in diversity and we also mention it proudly. Today, the mantra of unity in diversity is seen blooming in its full glory. I feel proud. Even after thousands of years, if anyone wants to understand India's vital element of unity in diversity, then they will surely mention today's historic day. This incident is not picked up from the pages of history, but 125 crore citizens of India themselves are creating a new history and adding a golden set to it."

PM Modi’s message 

PM Modi while addressing the nation after the Ayodhya verdict said that “Today’s message is to unite and to live together in harmony. If anyone has any sort of bitterness in them on this issue, it’s the time to forget that as well. The new India has no place for fear, bitterness and negativity. The Supreme Court’s decision today has also given a message to the whole country that the most difficult of decisions have a solution in our Constitution. We should learn from this verdict that it is very important to maintain peace even if justice takes a while to be served. We should ensure that we trust the Indian Constitution, judicial system and traditions in every situation."

Supreme Court's Ayodhya verdict

Pronouncing the landmark judgment in the Ayodhya dispute case, the Supreme Court on Saturday, delivered a unanimous judgment in the title suit of the disputed area awarding it to the Hindu parties for the construction of a temple. It also 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 5 acres is to be allotted to Muslims for the liberty of constructing a mosque, either by the central govt or the State govt, in a suitable and prominent place in Ayodhya. 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.
