The families of the kar sevaks killed in police firing 29 years ago have expressed happiness after the decision on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri dispute.  He has said that the Supreme Court verdict is like a festival of Diwali and Holi for him.  In 1990, two brothers, 22-year-old Ram Kothari and 20-year-old Sharad Kothari, were killed in a police firing on Karjan at Ramjanmabhoomi.

 Poornima, elder sister of Kothari brothers said, 'Our whole family is very happy.  We waited 29 years for justice.  My brothers died while fighting for the Ram temple, now their soul will find peace.  It is like a festival of Holi and Diwali for us.  Purnima, who lives in Burra Bazar in central Kolkata, said that Kothari bhai used to regularly visit the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) branch near his house.  He went to Ayodhya for Karseva on the call of Vishwa Hindu Parishad.  Dozens of people, including the Kothari brothers, were killed in the firing that took place at that time.  Purnima said that when the temple construction starts at the holy site (Ram Janmabhoomi), his family will go there and pay tribute to all those killed during the kar seva.


A five-judge bench of the Supreme Court gave a unanimous verdict of 5-0 on the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute.  Rejecting the claim of Nirmohi Akhara, the Supreme Court considered Ramlala Virajaman and Sunni Waqf Board as parties.  The top court termed the Allahabad High Court's decision to divide the disputed land into three parties.  Finally, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Ramlala Virajaman.  The court also ordered that 5 acres of land be given to the Sunni Waqf Board somewhere else in Ayodhya.
