In a historic judgement in the sensitive Ayodhya land dispute case, the Supreme Court on Saturday directed the Centre to form within three months a trust which will build a Temple at the disputed site.
The Sunni Waqf Board, which was a party to the 7-decade-old title suit, should be given an alternate five-acre land at some other suitable place for construction of a Mosque, a 5-member bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, said in a unanimous judgement.
The Karnataka government will conduct mass marriages for Hindu couples free of cost, at the Temples coming under the Muzrai department. The official announcement will be coming next week from the Muzrai department.
Karnataka has over 34,000 Muzrai Temples, of which 175 temples are Class A (annual revenue above Rs 25 lakh), 158 are Class B (annual income Rs 5 lakh-Rs 25 lakh) and remaining are Class C (annual income less than Rs 5 lakh).
We had chosen 90-100 Class A Temples with a revenue of Rs 60 lakh to Rs 100 lakh per annum. This is not a one-time wedding; mass marriages for 25 to 100 couples will be conducted throughout the year. These Temples generate good revenue and we want to utilize it for the society and a noble cause, he said.
