About the SC verdict:
In the unanimous judgement, the five-member constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi gave the 2.77 acre disputed land in Ayodhya to the Hindus and asked the government to give an alternate land of 5 acres to the Sunni Waqf Board, which was a party to the title suit, to build a new mosque.
The top court further directed the Centre to form within three months a trust which will build a temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
