It’s been over 70 years in the making, or nearly 500 years in the making, depending on who you ask, but the Supreme Court of India delivered the final judgment on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute on 9 November, bringing the case to a long-awaited conclusion.

The Supreme Court bench, led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi delivered its judgment on 9 November, allotting the 2.77 acres of disputed land to the Ram Lalla Virajman, the deity or the Hindus, subject to conditions and I'll come to it shortly.

But they also ordered that five acres of land in a prominent area in Ayodhya be given to the Sunni Waqf Board for the building of a mosque.

Security was heightened across India before the verdict, in Kashmir, in Mumbai..with increased deployment of police and security forces. A lot has taken place, so lets not dilly dally and get into it.
