The Muslims will be allocated five acres of land at a different location where they will be able to erect a mosque, the court said. In another five-judge bench, Justice Chandrachud in a unanimous verdict held Section 497 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalised adultery, to be unconstitutional on the ground of being arbitrary, archaic and violative of the right to equality and privacy. "It is inappropriate for the Court to get into area of theology".

The leaders claimed that though the Narasimha Rao government was blamed for failing to stall its demolition, it was the Congress which initiated the mediation 26 years ago and wanted the construction of a Ram temple through consensus or through court order.

Congress leader and former Uttar Pradesh minister Pramod Tiwari said, "The BJP has always said that this is an issue of faith and it can not be resolved in the court. It's a historic moment for Hindus", he said. The court said evidence in the records shows that Hindus were in the possession of outer court of the disputed land.

The judgement weighed heavily on the Archaeological Survey of India report.

AIMIM President and Lok Sabha member Asaduddin Owaisi has said that the Ayodhya verdict is a case of the victory of belief over facts.

The arguments were heard by the bench, which reserved its order on October 16, after Rajeev Dhavan, a senior counsel for the Muslim parties, tore a pictorial map provided by the Hindu Mahasabha purportedly showing the exact birth place of Lord Ram in Ayodhya.

The verdict in the decades-old dispute is a major victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who won reelection in a landslide in May.

In addition to 500 arrests of would-be trouble-makers, Uttar Pradesh state police chief O.P. Singh told the Economic Times that 10,000 "anti-social" elements had been identified.

At the centre of the row is the 16th Century Babri mosque that was demolished by Hindu mobs in 1992, sparking riots that killed almost 2,000 people.

According to the sources in the Supreme Court's administrative department, the idea is to unwind after delivering one of the most long-awaited, sensitive verdicts in tyhe country's judicial history.

Still, the verdict is likely to be viewed as win for Modi's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its backers.

The minister said the decision which coincided with Kartarpur Border opening will exert more pressure on already suppressed community.

He said that Pakistan would issue a response after going over the judgement in detail. The court also said that five acres of land be allotted to Muslims in a separate place in Ayodhya for the construction of a mosque.
