On Thursday, a court ruled that the site of Babri mosque, a 16th century mosque in Ayodhya, northern India, would be divided three parts between Hindus and Muslims.
No confirmation has been given by the court in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh regarding this information.
The dispute regarding this site flared up when in 1992 some Hindus extremists demolished Babri Mosque in the northern Indian town of Ayodhya which led to one of India’s worst riots since independence. Nearly 2,000 Muslims were killed in the country.
The verdict is almost certain to be challenged in the Supreme Court and a final decision could take years.
