In a unanimous verdict, the Supreme Court on Saturday cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya. The apex court also directed the central government to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque. In a historic verdict, a 5-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi put an end to the more than a century-old dispute.
The apex court said the mosque should be constructed at a “prominent site” and a trust should be formed within three months for the construction of the temple at the site many Hindus believe Lord Ram was born.
As the verdict came out, not just the people of the country but Bollywood celebrities also reacted. Actors like Kangana Ranaut, Huma Qureshi, Madhur Bhandarkar and others took to social media and asked the citizens to accept the verdict with grace. They also said that this judgement is proof that everyone can ‘coexist peacefully’.
“The supreme court judgement on #AYODHYAVERDICT shows how all of us can coexist peacefully. This is the beauty of our great country, and I urge everyone to rejoice in the fact that we define ‘Unity in diversity’ : #KanganaRanaut #AyodhyaJudgment #AyodhyacaseVerdict

Waqt lagta hai, par ho jaata hai. The Supreme Court has delivered it’s verdict on a longstanding dispute over land title. Respect the law, accept the verdict and ignore those who will try to gain political capital or TRPs from this. It really is time to move on.
