New Delhi:

The Supreme Court on Friday began reading out the landmark verdict in the Ayodhya case in packed court room number 1 on Saturday. The Constitutional Bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said that the apex court has reached a unanimous verdict in the case. CJI Gogoi said that he will take half-an-hour to finish the reading of the verdict. Some of the key takeaways of the verdict so far are:

1: This Court set up under Constitutional scheme should defer from interfering with faith and belief of worshippers. Secularism basic feature of the Constitution.

2: Ram Lalla virajman is a juristic person, said CJi. However, the court said that Ramjanamsthan is not juristic person.

3: The Archaeological Survey of India's report cannot be brushed aside, said CJI.

4: Archaeological evidence supports a underlying structure of Hindu origin, but this report does not give finding about whether a Hindu temple was demolished to construct the mosque.

5: But court clarifies title of the land can be decided only on legal evidence.

6: There is evidence that Ram Chabutra, Sita Raso was worshipped by the Hindus before the British came, the CJI said. 

7: Presence of a pre-existing structure beneath Mosque  alone not enough for title today, says the CJI.

8: Destruction of mosque in 1992 happened in breach of SC order, says Chief Justice of India Gogoi.
