REUTERSMinutes after the Indian top court verdict on the Babri Masjid land dispute was announced, Zafaryab Jilani, the lawyer for the Sunni Waqf Board said that the board respects the Supreme Court judgment.

Addressing a press conference after the Supreme Court verdict on the case, senior advocate Zafaryab Jilani said, "We respect the judgment but we are not satisfied, we will decide further course of action."

Zafaryab Jilani, who has represented the Muslim side in the Babri Masjid title suit, also said the board is "not satisfied" with the judgment, which ruled in favour of the majority Hindus.

A Supreme Court bench, led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, on Saturday (Nov 9) granted the entire 2.77-acres of disputed land in Ayodhya to deity Ram Lalla in a set of four directions, reports India Today.

The five-judge bench directed Delhi 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 seven-decade-old title suit, should be given an alternate five-acre land at some other suitable place for construction of a mosque, the unanimous judgment read.
