Indian PM Narendra Modi reacts over the controversial verdict of SC on the Ayodhya land case
NEW DELHI - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi reacts over the controversial verdict of Indian Supreme Court over the Ayodhya land case.
The verdict is a huge victory for Hindu nationalists under Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had promised to build the temple in 2014 elections that brought him to power.
"The halls of justice have amicably concluded a matter going on for decades.
Every side, every point of view was given adequate time and opportunity to express differing points of view," said Modi following the ruling. "This verdict will further increase people’s faith in judicial processes."
There is adequate material in ASI report to conclude the following: Babri Masjid not constructed on vacant land. There was a structure underlying the disputed structure. The underlying structure was not an Islamic structure," said the Supreme Court, according to *Scroll.in*.
"But the ASI report does not say if the structure was demolished for the mosque. It has left unanswered this critical point: whether temple was demolished for mosque."
"This court must accept faith and accept belief of worshippers," India's Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi's was quoted as saying. "Court should preserve balance."
