Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said Supreme Court’s verdict on the Ayodhya case should not be “seen as a win or loss for anybody”.

The apex court granted the disputed site to the Hindu parties to build a temple and ordered that a five-acre alternative site should be given to Muslim litigants. 

In a tweet, Modi said, “Be it Ram Bhakti or Rahim Bhakti, it is imperative that we strengthen the spirit of Rashtra Bhakti.”

The Prime Minister further said that the top court’s judgment is notable because “it highlights that any dispute can be amicably solved in the spirit of due process of law” and “it reaffirms the independence, transparency and farsightedness of our judiciary”. 

He also said that the verdict “clearly illustrates everybody is equal before the law.” and it will “further increase people’s faith in judicial processes.”
