Muslims to get five acre of alternative land in a suitable prominent place.

Masjid not built on vacant land

Quoting the ASI report, the Bench says the underlying structure in the disputed site was not of Islamic origin, however the report does not support whether the temple was demolished, the Bench says.

The court also says the mosque was not built on a vacant land, as claimed by the Muslim parties.

There is clear evidence the Hindus believed Ram was born in the disputed site, the CJI say.

The mosque was neither abandoned nor seceded by the Muslims, the court observes.
