Reportedly, On November 9, the Supreme Court gave the historic verdict on the disputed land in Ayodhya to the Hindu side. It directed the Centre to set up a trust within 3 months for the purpose of the construction of the Ram temple in the once disputed land. Also, the apex court further directed the Central Government to give a suitable plot of land measuring five acres to the Sunni Waqf Board.
It is reported that, on December 6, 1992, thousands of Kar Sevaks who pledged their allegiance to VHP had demolished the Babri Masjid which stood at the disputed land.
