The Supreme Court has announced the decades-old conflict of the historic land of Ayodhya. The land was the birthplace of the Hindu Lord Ram and Babri Masjid.
PM Narendra Modi asked the citizens to maintain peace and harmony regardless of pof the decision. He tweeted:
अयोध्या पर सुप्रीम कोर्ट का जो भी फैसला आएगा, वो किसी की हार-जीत नहीं होगा। देशवासियों से मेरी अपील है कि हम सब की यह प्राथमिकता रहे कि ये फैसला भारत की शांति, एकता और सद्भावना की महान परंपरा को और बल दे।

To announce the closure of this age-old dispute a five-judge constitution bench was headed by the Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi.
The government has raised the security forces not just in Ayodhya but all across the country. Section 144 has been imposed in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
This verdict announced under the tenure of Narendra Modi is in a way a political victory for him.
We are expected to follow the tradition of peace and harmony regardless of the decision.
