India court says mosque site to be divided-TV

Babari mosque IndiaNEW DELHI: A court ruled on Thursday that the site of a demolished 16th century mosque in northern India would be divided three ways between Hindus and Muslims, local television reported.

The information has not been confirmed by the court in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.

The demolition of the 16th century mosque by Hindu mobs in 1992 triggered some of India’s worst riots that killed about 2,000 people. More than 200,000 police have fanned out in India on Thursday to guard against any communal violence.

Hindus wants to build a temple on the site. Muslims want the mosque rebuilt after it was demolished in 1992.

The verdict is almost certain to be challenged in the Supreme Court and a final decision could take years. – Reuters
