What did Pakistan say on Ayodhya decision: The Supreme Court’s verdict on the temple and mosque dispute in Ayodhya is also getting a response from Pakistan. On Saturday, a 5-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of India Justice Ranjan Gogoi unanimously pronounced the decision on the disputed land in favor of Ramlala and directed the Muslim side to allot five acres of land for the mosque.
This decision has received a steady and balanced response from all sides in India but an aggressive response from Pakistan.
Pakistani Army spokesman Asif Ghafur tweeted, “The world has once again seen the real face of extremist India.” India ended its constitutional status of Kashmir on 5 August and today the Babri Masjid was decided. On the other hand, respecting the other religion, Pakistan opened the Kartarpur Corridor for the servants of Guru Nanak.
Timing of Babri Mosque judgement raised many questions.Why Supreme Court of India announced this verdict on weekend?Is it an effort to counter the inauguration of Kartarpur Corridor for Sikhs in Pakistan same day?Is it a verdict based on law or based on BJP manifesto? https://t.co/P5ELWsMVor

According to Radio Pakistan, on the decision of Ayodhya, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that this reflects the bigotry of the Modi government. Qureshi also wondered why the Supreme Court of India pronounced its verdict on the day the Kartarpur corridor was inaugurated. He said, “Muslims in India are already under pressure and after the Supreme Court’s decision, the pressure will increase.”
Qureshi said that the reality of India’s secular image has come to the fore with this decision. Pakistan’s science and technology minister, Chaudhary Fawad Hussain, who has often made controversial statements against India, made the Supreme Court’s decision on Ayodhya shameful, wasteful, illegal and immoral.
Senior Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir also tweeted, “The time the verdict came on the Babri Masjid raises many questions. Why did the Supreme Court of India pronounce its decision this week? Is this in response to what Pakistan has done for Sikhs in Kartarpur? This decision is based on the law or the BJP’s manifesto.
Senior journalist Nadeem Malik of Sama TV in Pakistan has tweeted, “Supreme Court of India has given a disputed decision. The disputed land has been given to the Hindus for the temple. The 460-year-old mosque was demolished in 1992 by Hindus. Five acres of land has been given separately for the mosque to the Muslims. ‘
