The case relates to the site of a 16th-century mosque in Ayodhya which is claimed by Muslims and Hindus.

Lawyers said the court had ordered the site to be divided into three parts, with two thirds for Hindus and a third for Muslims.

“The suit of Muslims were liable to be dismissed. But they are still entitled to one third of the site,” the lawyer for the Babri Masjid Action Committee, Zafaryab Jilani, told reporters.

“We can say we are partly disappointed not fully because some of the stand of the Muslims has been vindicated.”

In 1992 the demolition of the mosque by Hindu activists sparked riots that killed more than 2,000 people, mostly Muslims, and propelled India’s Hindu nationalists into the political mainstream.
