The Indian Supreme Court on Saturday cleared way for Hindus to construct a temple on the disputed holy site in the Ayodhya case involving the Babri Masjid demolition in 1992.

Amongst the ones condemning the verdict on the decades-old dispute are prominent figures including political leaders, journalists and celebrities. 

The Indian Supreme Court on Saturday ordered allotment of alternative land to Muslims for setting up of a mosque while deciding in favour of Hindus.

A five-judge bench pronounced its unanimous judgment that was reserved last month on the decades-old Ayodhya case involving the 1992 demolition of the Babri Masjid.

"Muslims should not be deprived of a structure; will get alternative site for masjid," the court ruled.

The ruling said the Indian government will formulate a scheme in three months to set up a board of trustees for construction of temple at the disputed structure.

"Court should preserve balance," Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said while reading out the judgment.
