Mosque site to be divided

The court in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, India today ruled that the site of a demolished mosque in Ayodhya, would be divided between Hindus and Muslims, the Reuters news agency reported.
 

The court also ruled that Hindu idols could stay on the disputed land, lawyers added. The demolition of the 16th century mosque by Hindu mobs in 1992 triggered some of India's worst riots that killed about 2,000 people. More than 200,000 police fanned out in India on Thursday to guard against any communal violence.
 

If the ruling soothes tensions, it would be a boost for the ruling Congress party, a left-of-centre group with secular roots, that does not want to upset either voter bloc. Major political parties had called for calm.
 

The verdict came only days before Sunday's opening of the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi with the government wanting to project an image of stability and modernity to the world.
 

In 1992 the demolition of the mosque by Hindu activists sparked riots that killed more than 2,000 people, mostly Muslims, and propelled India's Hindu nationalists into the political mainstream.

    its not fair to give 1/3rd to muslims and 2/3rd to hindus if they devide the land 1/2 n 1/2 its fair .

    nizar Thursday, 30 September 2010 03:40 PM

    at the16th century it may belongs to hindu , in practice during these centuries hindu and other religions accepted the islam, so the current land is may be for these man kinds but now they are muslims so the owner of the land is for muslims because this island was owned by current muslim's parents

    so who is the owner, think critically,

    who's land who is going to divide it??? bcz it's muslim's

    Anybody like to give your parents land and property to others??

    Vira Thursday, 30 September 2010 03:54 PM

    Good verdict
    Hindus owned this place for centuries and then it captuired by others. Now time to give it back to Hindus and they should allow other religious people to visit and pray

    lankaman Friday, 01 October 2010 06:28 AM

    then if we apply ur theory, lets give back sri lanka to the veddhas and go back to india

    demon Thursday, 30 September 2010 04:10 PM

    you should read more...did you know that India was an Islamic country...

    MAMA Friday, 01 October 2010 12:45 PM

    This is not about 2 countries. Pakistan is not a 100% Muslim country! There are Hindus, Christians living! And this land dispute is not religion as well! This is for the Holy Worship Place of a Religion for which the Hindu's disgraced themselves by breaking apart! No one wants to disturb peace in any where of the world! Peace is required but no one has any right discriminate or harm ANY RELIGION in the World!

    Faqi Friday, 01 October 2010 06:53 AM

    This is a politically correct verdict and not Justice.

    zulfi Thursday, 30 September 2010 04:34 PM

    Will they apply this rule in the land which owned by a hindu temple?what a judgment...?

    Meera Thursday, 30 September 2010 04:36 PM

    its not a real verdict.Any party can go to High court against this verdict.Then another 20years will take for actual verdict.

    Thomas Friday, 01 October 2010 07:04 AM

    For a secular India, this is a fair verdict. Hope both Hindues & Muslims will accept the verdict and prevent blood shedding.

    xlntgson Saturday, 02 October 2010 10:00 AM

    Not unfair, if it is not contested by both the parties and appealing for ever! Hindus should invite chased Muslims to settle there and start building the mosque!

    frishibly Thursday, 30 September 2010 05:44 PM

    funnyest verdict....

    Alipola Friday, 01 October 2010 08:38 AM

    Why do you want this land?? we gave you pakistan didnt we!? dont be greedy

    shavantha Friday, 01 October 2010 03:13 AM

    All ways share as much as possible because we dont take any thing when we die nothing belogs to us permanently

    thamz Saturday, 02 October 2010 01:57 AM

    Isn't it funny how religions fight for places of worship? :s

    Anver Thursday, 30 September 2010 01:12 PM

    Under the circumstances, this is the best verdict which both sides must respect. It should bring peace and harmony to a country with such deep rooted religious animosity fanned by selfish politicians for decades.

    Kan Friday, 01 October 2010 04:58 AM

    If this kind of land dispute happens in Sri Lanka, can you imagine the verdict of any court keeping in view 18A?

    Ramesh Saturday, 02 October 2010 05:14 AM

    LAND DIVIDED, INDIA UNITED

    Javed Saturday, 02 October 2010 05:43 AM

    This is what every uneducated and backward hindu thinks in India.

    naz Friday, 01 October 2010 05:33 AM

    Well said, Truth seeker. I totally agree with you. It is the same case as what is happening in Palestine now. So we must stand for justice.

    Truth seeker Thursday, 30 September 2010 03:16 PM

    @ Anver,
    I appreciate your comments but I want to ask you a question. I come to your house, attack you violently and claim that my house was here before your house so I have the rights to live in your house. Therefore I forcefully occupy your house. In our fight, god forbid I also kill some of your relatives. We both go to the courts and court give the verdict that we both can stay along the site in your house. What would you do?, whats your reaction would be? will you accept the verdict?

    Nisraf Tuesday, 05 October 2010 08:01 AM

    What would have happened if the court verdict was against Hindus and RSS???
    Verdict must be on archeological proof not by Religious Belief specially Hindus...
