Narendra Modi addresses nation post-Ayodhya verdict; Prime Minister expresses happiness over inauguration of judgement and Kartarpur Corridor

Post-Ayodhya verdict, Prime Minister Narendra Modi decided to address the nation. The national address began at 6 pm today.

Supreme Court of India today pronounced the judgment in much disputed Ayodhya land case. The court gave a balanced judgment where it allowed the specific land for constructing the temple and allotted a separate land piece (twice the size of disputed land) to the Muslim party (Sunni Waqf Board).

Prime Minister said, “Today, the Supreme Court has ruled on an important case that has a history of hundreds of years behind it. The whole country wished that the matter should be heard in the court on a day-to-day basis, which took place, and today the decision is out“.

Narendra Modi also mentioned the fall of the Berlin wall which also happened on 9 November. The leader also expressed his happiness over the inauguration of Karatarpur Corridor that bridges the gap between Pakistan and India.

Prime Minister iterated the country’s apex court effort towards resolving the case. He said that all the judges heard the petitions carefully and came out with a decision that was accepted by all.

The Supreme court has instructed the Centre to make the required arrangements for the construction of the temple. The Centre has been directed to form a trust for the same.

BJP veteran leader LK Advani also expressed his happiness with the court’s decision. He hailed the judgment as historic and vowed to join the country in welcoming the decision.

AYODHYA CASE

The case was heard by a 5-judge constitution bench which included CJI Ranjan Gogoi, Justice SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer.

The court heard the matter for 40 days straight, right from the 6th august after the mediation panel headed by Judge FM Ibrahim Kalifullah was unable to come out with an amicable solution.

Supreme Court started hearing the batch of petitions against the judgment of Allahabad High court that had divided the 2.77-acre in Ayodhya among the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla equally.
