Ayodhya: Indian supreme court gives holy site to Hindus

India's supreme court has ruled in favour of a Hindu temple on disputed religious ground and ordered that alternative land should be given to Muslims to build a mosque.

The dispute over land ownership has been one of the country's most contentious issues.

The 16th-century Babri Masjid mosque in northern Indian town of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh state was destroyed by Hindu hard-liners in December 1992, sparking widespread sectarian violence that left 2,000 people dead.

Five supreme court justices said in a unanimous judgment that five acres of land will be allotted to the Muslim community at a prominent place for building a mosque.

The disputed land will be given to a board of trustees for the construction of a temple for Hindu god Ram.

‘Muslim boys should consider Hindu girls as their sisters’: SP leader

Samajwadi Party (SP) MP from Moradabad ST Hasan called ‘Love Jihad’ a political stunt and asked Muslim boys to consider Hindu girls their ‘sisters’. He said, “Love Jihad is a political stunt. In our country, people choose their life partners irrespective of religion. Hindus marry Muslims and vice versa. However, the numbers are very low. But if you dig deep into 'love jihad' cases, you would find that girls know that boys are Muslims. But due to societal pressure or internal issues in the family, they lie and it becomes a case of Love Jihad.” He added, "I advise Muslim boys to consider Hindu girls as their sisters. Don't get lured, because a law has been framed under which you could be subjected to tremendous torture. Save yourself and don't get into any temptation or love.” Watch the full video for more.
