The bench presided over by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi directed that a suitable plot of land measuring five acres be allocated to Sunni Central Waqf Board to construct a mosque. The land may be allotted by the Centre "out of the acquired land" or by the state government at a suitable place in Ayodhya.

"It is necessary to provide restitution to the Muslim community for the unlawful destruction of their place of worship," it stated.

"The Central Government shall make necessary provisions in regard to the functioning of trust or body including on matters relating to the management of the trust, powers of the trustees including the construction of a temple," the judgment stated.

The bench also comprising Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer passed the order on a batch of petitions against an order of the Allahabad High Court which trifurcated the site among the parties - Ramlalla Virajman, Sunni Central Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara.
