Home Ministry starts setting up trust for Ram Mandir construction in Ayodhya
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has initiated the process to setup the trust that will be handed the responsibility of constructing the Ram temple. Sources say a team of experts in the ministry is studying the legalities of the November 9 historic judgment of the Supreme Court in the Ayodhya dispute case.
According to sources, the MHA has already started with the process to form a trust, following the Supreme Court orders.
The Supreme Court on Saturday put an end to the 70-year legal battle over the disputed site in Ayodhya where the Babri Masjid stood before its demolition in 1992. The five-judge SC bench led by CJI Ranjan Gogoi ruled in favour of Ram Lalla and said the entire disputed land spread over 2.7 acres will be handed over to a trust formed by the government, which will monitor the construction of a Ram temple at the site.
The court also said that the Sunni Waqf Board will be given an alternative five-acre plot in Ayodhya to build a mosque.
According to sources, a team of bureaucrats of the Ministry of Home Affairs is studying the 1,045-page judgment to setup this trust.
The ministry is also seeking legal opinion from the Attorney General and the law ministry.
