Indian Muslim body to challenge Ayodhya verdict in court

New Delhi: A Muslim organisation in India said on Sunday it was to seek a review of a Supreme Court decision which granted a contested religious site to the Hindu majority.
The court on November 9 held that the site in the northern city of Ayodhya will be given to a government-run trust for building a Hindu temple while Muslims will be allotted an alternate location to construct a mosque there.
The 16th-century Babri mosque was destroyed by Hindu mobs in 1992, triggering deadly Hindu-Muslim violence in which more than 2,000 people were killed.
Hindus claimed that a temple to their god Ram predated the mosque and wanted to build a new one at the site, while Muslims wanted a new mosque. (DPA)
