Disputed land in Ayodhya Ram’s birthplace, but split it: High Court (Hindustan Times)

A high court has just solomonically decided to split the child in a riot-ridden dispute over a plot in Ayodhya, India, that Hindus say is the birthplace of the god Ram, but was also used for Muslim worship. Riots broke out after Hindus demolished the Babri Masjid mosque on the site in 1992. The legal ownership case has been in court since 1855. Hindus are known to have worshiped there since before 1528, when the original temple was demolished.
