Ayodhya: Indian supreme court gives holy site to Hindus

India's supreme court has ruled in favour of a Hindu temple on disputed religious ground and ordered that alternative land should be given to Muslims to build a mosque.

The dispute over land ownership has been one of the country's most contentious issues.

The 16th-century Babri Masjid mosque in northern Indian town of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh state was destroyed by Hindu hard-liners in December 1992, sparking widespread sectarian violence that left 2,000 people dead.

Five supreme court justices said in a unanimous judgment that five acres of land will be allotted to the Muslim community at a prominent place for building a mosque.

The disputed land will be given to a board of trustees for the construction of a temple for Hindu god Ram.
