UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY VIDEO) — Hindus and Muslims have argued over a centuries-old religious site in the city of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh state for decades.
Hardline Hindu groups tore down a mosque there nearly 30 years ago, triggering violence that killed 2,000 people.
India’s highest court has now ruled unanimously that the land should be given to Hindus to build a temple.
Muslims will be provided with two hectares elsewhere in Ayodhya to build a mosque.
Will the verdict end the controversy, or inflame tensions further?
