K K Muhammed, former regional director (North), Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) said, “I feel vindicated (he had said Ram temple existed before Babri mosque in Ayodhya), I was hounded by a group of people. It is exactly the kind of decision that we all wanted.

“The top court’s ruling should be respected the way the national flag is honoured” said the leader of Tamilnaduopposition.

I stand vindicated, feel deeply blessed at Supreme Court verdict paving way for construction of magnificent Ram temple in Ayodhya. Now the time has come to leave all contention and acrimony behind and embrace communal concord and peace,” he said.
“There is no question of loss or victory to any of the parties concerned after the Supreme Court’s verdict in Ayodhya case because the apex court has resolved centuries’ old issue by delivering a balanced judgment,” said the VHP leader Vishnu Sadashiv Kokje.
Union culture minister Prahlad Patel said. “The ASI report which till now was the property of the court will soon be published in the form of a book for the public. I am grateful to all the experts who worked on the report and also congratulate them for their efforts,”
Kanthapuram AP Aboobacker Musaliyar, of the Grand Mufti of India said, “We respect the Supreme Court. Those who have won today must not celebrate. Those who have been defeated must not create problems. The victory or defeat over the Babri Masjid incident may be significant to every party, but the protection of India and its sovereignty is much more important.”
One of the litigants in the decades-old Ayodhya land dispute case, the Sunni Waqf Board reportedly said that it won’t seek a review of the Supreme Court’s judgment.
Shia Cleric Maulana Kalbe Jawad said, “We humbly accept SC verdict, I am thankful to god that Muslims by and large have accepted this verdict and the dispute has ended now. Though its their(Muslim Personal law board) right to file review petition I think matter should just end now.”

TMC, BJD remained silent on Ayodhya verdict The Trinamool Congress ruling in West Bengal and the Biju Janata Dal in Odisha on Saturday maintained silence on the Ayodhya verdict even as major parties in the states came out with their reactions.
AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisisaid that although it is up to the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, but my opinion is that we should reject the offer for the five-acre land. “It is true that Muslims are poor. But they are not so weak that they cannot build a home for their god. We can afford it. We were fighting for our legal rights. No need to patronize us,” Owaisi said.
AsaduddinOwaisi said he was unsatisfied with the Supreme Court ruling. He said, “Supreme Court is supreme but not infallible.”
And Pakisthan too had a comment on this issue which was very personal to India.
Pakistan foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi objected to the timing of the Ayodhya verdict, which coincided with the inauguration of the Kartarpur corridor, saying he was “deeply saddened” at the “insensitivity” shown at such a joyous occasion.
The MEA rejected the unwarranted and gratuitous comments made by Pakistan on the judgment of the Supreme Court on a civil matter that is completely internal to India.
The MEA also said that, Pakistan’s lack of comprehension isn’t surprising, their pathological compulsion to comment on our internal affairs with the obvious intent of spreading hatred is condemnable.
Ayodhya verdict has paved way for a new Dawn of harmony and progress, hence we citizens of India, continue to live in harmony and accept the judgement of Supreme Court.
