India: Babri Masjid case verdict expected soon


India’s Supreme Court is set to deliver a verdict in the critical Babri Masjid case Saturday.

The constitutional bench of the top court will pronounce judgement on the title suit case, whether the site of mosque belongs to Hindus or Muslims around 10:30 am (0500GMT), according to a notice released court’s registry late Friday.

The decision comes after the Muslim side in the case challenged a 2010 verdict of Allahabad High Court that decided to distribute the land of the Masjid between contesting parties.

The Supreme Court heard the case daily since Aug. 16 which ended Oct. 16.

The provincial government in Uttar Pradesh, where Babri Masjid is located, made elaborate security arrangements to meet any law and order situation.

Ahead of the verdict, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for calm and said the verdict is neither victory nor loss for either party..
