The verdict of the most awaited Ayodhya Dispute has come. The Constitutional Bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, while giving the verdict, has rejected the claim of Nirmohi Akhara and Shia Waqf Board. Ramjanmabhoomi Nyas has been given disputed land in Ayodhya. Also, the Muslim side has been ordered to give 5 acres of land at a prominent place in Ayodhya. The Supreme Court has ordered the government to form a trust as well.

Tight security arrangements have been made across the country, including Ayodhya, before the Supreme Court's decision on Saturday in the Ayodhya case. Along with this, school-colleges have been closed in many states of the country including UP, Delhi, Bihar, and Rajasthan. After the verdict, the administration is ready to maintain peace and order and social media is also being monitored.

Zafaryab Jilani, the Muslim side representer said, "We respect the Supreme Court's judgment and appeal for peace. No protest should happen anywhere. It's not a defeat. Whatever legal course is possible we will find that. The judgment is not satisfactory from the fact that the land of the courtyard has been given to the other side. We will discuss if the review will be filed or not”

Here are some takeaways from the verdict:-
