Ayodhya Verdict: How the judges ruled
New Delhi: The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has pronounced judgment in the Ayodhya title suit today.

The 3-judge bench has ruled in a majority judgement 2:1, that one-third part of the disputed land will go to the Sunni Waqf Board, one-third to the Nirmohi Akhara and one-third to the party for 'Ram Lalla'.

Justice S U Khan, in his judgement on the Ayodhya title suits, held that no temple was demolished for constructing the mosque at the dispute structure. He said the mosque was constructed under orders of Babar over the ruins of temples lying in that state for a very long time.

In his finds, the judge said that for a very long time till the construction of the mosque, it was believed by Hindus that in a very small part of the disputed area, the birth place of Lord Ram was situated.

Justice Sudhir Agarwal held that the area covered by the central dome of the disputed structure is the birth place of Lord Ram "as per the faith and belief" of the Hindus and should not be "obstructed or interfered" with in any manner.

However, he said the area within the inner courtyard belonged to members of both Hindus and Muslims since it was used by both since centuries.
