The Ayodhya matter shouldn’t be stretched further, commented Sayed Ahmed Bukhari, Sahi Imam of the Jama Masjid in Dilhi accepting Indian Supreme Court verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi- Babri Masjid titled dispute case on Saturday.

The veteran Islamic scholar of the country Sayed Bukhari said, “The matter shouldn’t be stretched further” quoting that, “Muslims in the country want peace and they had already said that they would accept whatever judgment the apex court delivers.”

In an anonymous verdict, the country’s apex court on Saturday cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed place in Ayodhya, and directed the center to allot 5- acres of land plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.

One of the most anticipated verdicts of the country’s history, a 5- Judges Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi put an end to the more than a century-old dispute that has torn the social fabric of the nation.

“We accepted the court order and the Hindu-Muslim issue which had been going on for several years should come to an end now,” said the Bukhari in a press conference regarding the verdict.

“Muslims in the country want peace. Before the court’s order, all Muslims had said that they would accept the court’s order” said Imam in response to the query about filing a review petition against the verdict.

The country’s apex court stated, “Mosque should be constructed at a prominent site.” The court also directed to allotted plot either by the center or the Utter Pradesh government. It also directed to form a trust within three months to establish a Ram Temple at the site as the Hindus believe that their lord Ram was born there.
