There is more than one way to view In­dia’s ver­dict on the land dis­pute

The National - News - - OPINION -

This is in ref­er­ence to the op-ed Ayodhya and Kartarpur Cor­ri­dor: two vastly dif­fer­ent faces of In­dia (Novem­ber 9). The an­cient Babri mosque had been in place for cen­turies when in 1949, an idol of Ram was stealth­ily placed in­side the mosque to sug­gest that it was orig­i­nally a Hindu tem­ple.

In 1992, the mosque was de­mol­ished and it re­mained un­der lit­i­ga­tion for decades.

It is un­for­tu­nate that the In­dian supreme court has ruled on the dis­pute based on faith rather than on the facts of the case.
