Timeline: Babri mosque-Ram temple case

The site at which Babri Mosque once stood is fiercely contested by Hindus and Muslims.1 hour ago

India‘s top court has ruled on the ownership of a centuries-old religious site claimed by both Hindus and Muslims. 

The Supreme Court on Saturday decided that the site in Ayodhya in northern India, where Hindu mobs destroyed a 460-year-old mosque in 1992, must be handed over to a trust to oversee the construction of a Hindu temple, subject to conditions. A separate piece of land in Ayodhya would be given over to Muslim groups.

The demolition of Babri Mosque triggered some of the deadliest religious riots the country had seen since independence in 1947.

Muslims say they prayed at the medieval-era mosque for centuries while Hindus say their deity Ram was born at the site where the mosque stood before December 6, 1992
