The Supreme Court in the road to its Ayodhya verdict travelled through ages of text that led it to state that the faith of the Hindus in Lord Ram was undisputed.
A verdict that the nation awaited with bated breath was delivered on Saturday. The Supreme Court paved the way for the construction of the Ram Temple, while directing the government to allot five acres of land at an alternate site to the Muslims.
