Supreme Court

After the Supreme court verdict, the political class of India has been quick to share their response on the land dispute.

SC in today´s verdict has given the disputed land to Hindus (through a trust), and an alternative plot will be handed over to the Sunni Waqf Board. 

 Social media had a lot to say on the matter as  #AYODHYAVERDICT trends at the number 1 trend on Twitter today. 

Congress, BJP, AAP, Shiv Sena have praised the Ayodhya land dispute and called for peace and harmony.

Aaditya Thackeray, a man of few words, had literally 3 words to say in his twitter account on the SC verdict.

The Congress on Saturday said it respects the Supreme Court verdict in the Ayodhya case and is in favour of Ram temple construction.

In a resolution passed by the Congress Working Committee chaired by party chief Sonia Gandhi, the Congress also appealed to all parties concerned and all communities to “abide by the secular values and spirit of fraternity enshrined in the Constitution and to maintain peace and harmony”.

Many concerend citizens have also highlighted that SC said that demolition of the babri masjid was illegal and asked why none of the culprits were punished.

Asaduddin Owaisi, chief of the All India Majis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), reacted to the Supreme Court’s Ayodhya verdict with a single photo on Twitter.

Owaisi posted the book cover of Supreme But Not Infallible: Essays in Honour of the Supreme Court of India.


Nearly an hour before his post, he retweeted the All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s tweet, which quoted its general secretary reaction to the judgement.

“The Ayodhya verdict holds no value for us. We are dissatisfied with the verdict. It has a lot of contradictions. We will seek a review,” the Sunni Waqf board’s lawyer Zafaryab Jilani said after the judgement.

There were many who tried to show how India´s secular status is debatable, and its fast turning towards fascistic tendencies.
