NEW DELHI, India / ANKARA, Turkey (AA) - The historic site of early 16th-century Babri Mosque be handed over to Hindus for the construction of a temple, India’s top court ruled on Saturday in a historic judgment.

The Indian Supreme Court also said that a “suitable plot” of land measuring 5 acres would be allotted to Muslims, either by central or provincial government, to construct a mosque.

In the judgement, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi directed the Indian government to formulate a scheme envisaging setting up of trust within three months to build the temple.

“Possession of inner and outer courtyards [of Babri Mosque] be handed over to the trust,” Gogoi said.

Babri Mosque was demolished in 1992 by a Hindu mob, who claimed that the site was birthplace of Hindu god Lord Rama.
