Babri Masjid
New Delhi, Oct 1:In the most awaited judgement of the recent times, the three-judge Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court divided the disputed site into three parts - one part for the Sunni Waqfs Board, one part for Nirmohi Akhara and one part to the party for Ram Lalla.

Here are brief introductions to the parties that get apiece each of the sacred site:

Sunni Waqfs Board

The plantiff in the land dispute case that was heard on Sep 30 was the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Board of Waqfs.

This body is part of the Sunni Waqfs Board, which is an elected legal body that oversees Sunni Islamic properties endowed for religious or charitable purposes.

The UP Sunni Central Board of Waqfs particularly supervises the above mentioned properties in the state, where Ayodhya is located.

Nirmohi Akhara

Nirmohi Akhara is a religious group of Hindu devotees of Lord Ram and his faithful aid, Lord Hunuman.

Nirmohi Akhara, which stands for 'Group Without Attachment', is comprised of 'sadhus' (Hindu holy men) who have renounced the material world.

The group, which was one of the plantiffs, told the High Court that the disputed site is of ancient antiquity, meaning that it has existed before the living memory of man.

Ram Lalla

Ram Lalla refers to the idol of child Ram placed under the central dome of the mosque in makeshift Ram mandir (temple) at Ram Janmabhoomi.

The 27-inch-high idol, carved in white marble from the mines of Makrana, Rajasthan, is understood to have been gifted by Chandresh Pandey of Jaipur Pandey Idol Museum.

The idol depicts Ram as a child with a smile that brims with kindness and benevolence is in a sitting posture over a blooming lotus.

Lord Ram, who is believed to be one of the reincarnations of the Vishnu, is among those deity most revered by Hindus.

While Muslim plantiffs sought the removal of the idol, Hindus not only sought access to the idols but also wanted the idol to remain there as they believe the spot was where Ram was born, therefore 'Ram Janmabhoomi'.

The Ram Lalla idol along with the idols of other gods, which were placed on the night of 22 Dec and 23 Dec, 1949, should remain, the court ruled on Sep 30.
