The Ayodhya dispute is a political and socio-religious debate emenating from Uttar Pradesh centred on a controversial plot of land in the city of Aydohya. The main issues revolve around access to a site traditionally regarded among Hindus to be the birthplace of the Hindu deity Rama. But that is where Babri Masjid was built by Babar.

However, it was destroyed during a political rally which turned into a riot on 6 December 1992.

A subsequent land title case was lodged in the Allahabad High Court, the verdict of which was pronounced on 30 September 2010. In the landmark hearing, the three judges of The Allahabad High Court ruled that the 2.77 acres (1.12 ha) of Ayodhya land be divided into 3 parts, with 1/3 going to the Ram Lalla or Infant Rama represented by the Hindu Maha Sabha for the construction of the Ram temple, 1/3 going to the Islamic Sunni Waqf Board   and the remaining 1/3 going to a Hindu religious denomination Nirmohi Akhara.

Meanwhile, the Nirmohi Akhara has categorically said that they are not open to any kind of mediation.
