India's Congress party also appealed to all communities to "abide by the secular values".

India's Prime Minister Narendra has reacted to the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya issue.

"The Honourable Supreme Court has given its verdict on the Ayodhya issue. This verdict shouldn't be seen as a win or loss for anybody. Be it Ram Bhakti or Rahim Bhakti, it is imperative that we strengthen the spirit of Rashtra Bhakti. May peace and harmony prevail", he said in a tweet on his official account.

Giving the reason as to why the Supreme Court's Ayodhya judgement is notable, PM Modi said that the verdict highlights the fact that any dispute can be amicably solved in the spirit of due process of law. It reaffirms the independence, transparency and farsightedness of our judiciary. It clearly illustrates everybody is equal before the law.

"The halls of justice have amicably concluded a matter going on for decades. Every side, every point of view was given adequate time and opportunity to express differing points of view. This verdict will further increase people's faith in judicial processes", Narendra Modi added.

Modi also said that the calm and peace maintained by 130 crore Indians in the run-up to today's verdict, manifests India's inherent commitment to peaceful coexistence. May this very spirit of unity and togetherness power the development trajectory of our nation. May every Indian be empowered!

The Congress on Saturday, November 9, said that it respects the Supreme Court verdict in the Ayodhya case and is in favour of Ram temple construction.

In a resolution passed by the Congress Working Committee chaired by party chief Sonia Gandhi, the Congress also appealed to all parties concerned and all communities to "abide by the secular values and spirit of fraternity enshrined in the Constitution and to maintain peace and harmony".
