Prime News, National (New Delhi), November 9:- The Supreme Court on Saturday gave a historic verdict in the decades-old Ayodhya’s Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case, directing that Hindus will get the disputed land subject to conditions. The inner courtyard will be handed over to a Centre-led Trust, while a suitable plot of land, measuring 5 acres, will be given to Sunni Waqf Board.
