It was only last month that the Supreme Court doled out the verdict on the infamous Babri Masjid case. The case languished in various courts for the longest time and had it been an open case since 1992. The dispute happened after a group of Hindu reformists vandalised the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya. The reason behind it according to them was that the masjid had been made on the same ground as a temple for Lord Rama. After 27 years, the Supreme Court decided and sided with the Hindus and the land was granted to them to construct a temple. Following the verdict, the people in Ayodhya and are now planning on remodelling their station to look like the Ram Mandir.
