"Keeping the honor of the judiciary of the country paramount, all the sides of the society, socio-cultural organizations, all the parties who have made efforts to create a harmonious and positive atmosphere in the past are welcome. Even after the decision of the court, we all have to maintain harmony together. Whatever decision of Supreme Court will come on Ayodhya, it will not be a victory or defeat of anyone. My appeal to the countrymen is that it should be the priority of all of us that this decision should further strengthen the great tradition of peace, unity and goodwill of India."

The Supreme Court of India will deliver its judgment in the Ayodhya dispute today (Saturday) and the verdict is expected at 10.30 am. The judgment will be pronounced on a non-working day by a Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and comprising Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer.

The hearing in the Ayodhya case began after the mediation panel report suggested that the parties had not arrived at any settlement. The court had earlier agreed to give mediation a chance and had set up a three-member mediation panel. The hearing in the case had lasted for 40 days.
