Hearings end over India’s controversial religious site

Bloomberg

India’s top court on Wednesday concluded hearing 40 days of arguments over the ownership of land in the northern city of Ayodhya that is at the heart of a long-drawn and polarising religious dispute over the construction of a temple on the site of a demolished mosque.
The dispute over ownership of the 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya has been India’s most politically divisive and emotive row for decades. The promise of building a grand temple to the Hindu god Ram at the Ayodhya site is a key part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s Hindu nationalist agenda. It was one of the campaign promises that propelled him to re-election this year.
The court did not give a date for the verdict.
