http://rjbm.nic.in/  [full judgement] 


High Court Judgement says:


1. Whether the disputed site is the birth place of Bhagwan 

The disputed site is the birth place of Lord Ram. Place of 

birth is a juristic person and is a deity. It is personified as the  

spirit of divine worshipped as birth place of Lord Rama as a
child.  Spirit of divine ever remains present every where at all 
times for any one to invoke at any shape or form in accordance
with his own aspirations and it can be shapeless and formless  
2. Whether the disputed building was a mosque? When  

was it built? By whom?  

The disputed building was constructed by Babar, the year  

is not certain but it was built against the tenets of Islam. Thus, it  

cannot have the character of a mosque.  
3. Whether the mosque was built after demolishing a  

Hindu temple?  

The disputed structure was constructed on the site of old  

structure after demolition of the same. The Archaeological  

Survey of India has proved that the structure was a massive 
Hindu religious structure.  
4. Whether the idols were placed in the building on the  

night of December 22/23rd, 1949?  


The idols were placed in the middle dome of the disputed 

structure in the intervening night of 22/23.12.1949.  

5. Whether any of the claims for title is time barred? 
O.O.S. No. 4 of 1989, the Sunni Central Board of Waqfs  

U.P., Lucknow and others Vs. Gopal Singh Visharad and others  

and O.O.S. No.3 of 1989, Nirmohi Akhara and Another Vs. Sri 
Jamuna Prasad Singh and others are barred by time.  
6. What will be the status of the disputed site e.g. inner  

 and outer courtyard?  

It is established that the property in suit is the site of  

Janm Bhumi of Ram Chandra Ji and Hindus in general had the  

right to worship Charan, Sita Rasoi, other idols and other object  
of worship existed upon the property in suit. It is also  
established that Hindus have been worshipping the place in  
dispute as Janm Sthan i.e. a birth place as deity and visiting it as  
a sacred place of pilgrimage as of right since time immemorial.  
After the construction of the disputed structure it is proved the  
deities were installed inside the disputed structure on  
22/23.12.1949. It is also proved that the outer courtyard was in  
exclusive possession of Hindus and they were worshipping  

throughout and in the inner courtyard (in the disputed   

structure) they were also worshipping. It is also established that   
the disputed structure cannot be treated as a mosque as it   
came into existence against the tenets of Islam.”   
This is the summary of this landmark judgement delivered on 30th Sept, 2010 at Lucknow branch of Allahabad High Court. I have provided 3 links to help you get the message.   
Please have a read. Its summary is not very complex. In nutshell, High Court found that the structure was not a mosque.  There was a temple there. 
Now, a time has come that we move on as Indians. India has much more important issues to deal with, rather than keep getting entangled in religious conflicts. Religious leaders need to understand that they are not serving mankind if they keep fuelling religious conflicts. They need to be smart enough to work for removing all irritants based on religions. After all, religions are for personal use, not for creating conflicts, confrontations and divisions.   

We have to accept that there are certain key places which are sacred for Hinduism, just like there are places for other religions. For Hinduism, I can mention Varanasi [Kashi], Mathura, Somnath, Ayodhya, Rameshwaram, Tirupati Temple, Puri and Kedar Nath temple in this category. It is incumbent on people of one religion to be sensitive for the feelings of people of other religions. They should work on removing irritants which harm the relations with other co-humans. They should not let themselves be shackled by the misdeeds of some of their bigoted and intolerant rulers of the past. 

India and Indians need to move on as a unit! We need to unite, not divide ourselves!

  1. Shri Balu, with due respect, I would like you to explain to me your reasons and assumptions on 1) Egoisim and religion 2) Homogenocity of hinduisim not being perfect
    I am totally at loss reg the point you are trying to make. Can you clarify them for me.
    Please read Sandeep’s statement. You cannot get over something if you have not understood it fully. I can get over the heated argument I had in the morning with my wife( I am a male, by the way!) by afternoon. Rama Janmabhomi is not a simple quarrel one had with neighbour reg his barking dog to get over. Those who forget history pays dearly later, proven time and time again.
    Yes, I am stating it agin. it will heal lot of wounds if the Muslims or Islamist if you want to call them, gracefully hand over their share of the disputed site.It high time amends are made by the Muslims for the atrocities done by thier forefathers in the name of relegion.


  2. Rama in his/her comment laments about the Muslims generosity to give back to Hindus. When one mentions by name of religions then it becomes Ego and the end is not going to happen. As a Hindu I can understand the feelings of fellow Hindu but at the same time I also realise that homogeneity of Hnduism is not perfect to the core I would say. The country is ruled by a Non-hindu leadership which is like a monarch and its aim is Votes and staying on power. Whereas in a Muslim country such things do not happen. And in India the justice is bought by power and not by virtue. In such a rat trap situation the judges served their justice. One can not expect anymore. The hindu pride and Muslim mercy on 5000 years of history is not a question here. The question now is to move on and not clinging to the past as a cross on back. This country has survived the onslaught of conversions on the swords edge and covert pointers by other major religions for these 2000 years. It will survive and will go on. Science & Technology inputs are feeding Materialism to be a real threat & destroyer to all religions in a way. Let us be prepared for it first.


  3. India without Hinudism would be like a body without soul.It is the belief of the Hindus that Ayothia was the birth plae of Shri Rama. Demanding and questioning proof of His birth is questioning the very relegion of Hinduism itself.
    Yadu, you say we have to move on.I disagree with you on this.
    The following is from Sandeep (seriously sandeep blog)
    “The Ayodhya issue is not a lover’s quarrel or separation to “get over it.” It concerns the history, civilization, and future of an entire subcontinent and a religion with a tradition that continues unbroken for 5000 years. If not resolved properly, the Ayodhya issue impacts the survival of that continuity. Indeed, the reason for the mess this has become is one of the indicators of such a potentially fatal impact.

    Which is why it’s important not to get over it. To get over something, you must understand it inside out. In this case, it means developing a keen, insightful sense of history. And that can’t be developed without studying history and how it has and/or continues to shape the present. I’m all for getting over it and moving on but not at the cost of ignoring the past. And I see this frivolous attitude about history in a large number of otherwise well-read and educated Indians. If we lost the sense of history, we wouldn’t know why Pakistan has named its missiles Ghauri and Ghaznavi”
    My opinion? The least the Muslims can do now is to hand over gracefully their share of the site back to the Hindus. Such a gesture will go a long way in healing some of Hindus’s wounds.


  4. There were many paradoxical errors on facts considered for judgment. But as a whole a land is disputed by three peoples or three users.In fact Rama is a God, or was really born are left to the believers & nonbelievers because the same ideology may be applied to all Faiths finally. Eventually from the court’s point of view three users were there and each one wants the “WHOLE” land denying others. Like three sons demanding the share of their mother but mother is a living being. No one can cut or slice. But this is a piece of land and lifeless. That’s a fact. Court approached this in a most practical way and logical way. Since all the arguments put forth are based on emotional, adamant beliefs & acts etc.. Judges have really thought over and given the verdict. This verdict can be given only at this point of Timeline. Not acceptable 10-15 years ago or later from now. This finally watered down and made many individuals who were fighting and VIP’s irrelevant from now on. BJP & Sunny Wakf Board must understand this.They have to go for some other divisive areas to establish their limelight. It is high time that people of India to ignore the fluttering from these useless people and move on to their progress. This is what going to happen..

  6. The summary seems filled with logical blunders not withstanding a rational approach.
    1) How can court decide it is the same place where Lord Ram was born?
    No historians have ever turned out any clue on the historical epoch, he reigned. A temple structure found below will prove his birthplace there? If that the case, why cant one argue that temple belonged to Sri Krishna? Does the temple inscriptions say, it was where Lord Ram was born?
    Ayodhya is brimming with hundreds of Ram temples, all claiming to be the birth place of Lord Ram? So should we say those venerant mahants are all liars and crooked frauds?

    2)If finding a structure below a building of 500 years delegitimizes the existence of that building, will same rule apply to all buildings in the world?
    If so, can Qutb Minar be occupied and demolished because it was built on the remains of a temple? Can Vaishnavites occupy most of the temples in Tamil Nadu as Saivite Cholas demolished them and converted them into Siva temples? even if the building is of architectural significance, it can be demolished without impunity, thats what the logic of judgement is

    3)The court itself observes deities were installed on a night in 1949. IT was placed secretly and illegally, that act of crime is legitimized with this judgement. Court is seeing it as a matter of fact!

    4)Does it make any difference even if an architectural monument not be a mosque so that it can be occupied by others? So says the court, the site is not a mosque so , Hindu mahasabha can use it. This is a land deed title case, not to decide whether mosque or not. Even if the site is 500 year old architecture wonder that must be protected, according to court, it can be demolished if not a mosque. Another illogical observation.

    On the whole, the judgement is filled with incoherent and irrational contradictions and illogical observations.


    • Let us wait for further commentaries. Ayodhya has a lot more significance for followers of Hinduism than it has to the followers of Islam. Ayodhya is not just a place. It is a scred place for Hindus.

      I think, this judgement is good judgement. India needs to move on!
