The Allahabad High Court has ruled that the disputed land should be divided three ways. The land has been divided between the Hindus and the Muslims (one-third for the Waqf Board, a third for Ram Lalla, and a third for the Nirmohi Akhara). The judgement says that the disputed site is the birthplace of Lord Ram and that the portion below the central dome under which idols are placed is allotted to Hindus.
The Waqf board - one of the main litigants - says it doesn't agree with the decision. "High Court's formula of one-third land is not acceptable to the Waqf Board and it will appeal against it in the apex court," said Zafaryab Jilani who represented the Waqf Board in court.
Jilani said that the Sunni Board is open to any negotiated settlement on the issue.
"The Board will move the apex court after a meeting of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board. We are not in hurry as we have 90 days' time to appeal as a matter of right," Jilani said.
