Buddhists claim ownership of disputed site at Ayodhya

Buddhists have also staked claim for ownership of the dispute site in Ayodhya that has been a bone of contention between Hindus and Muslims for decades.

The Chairman of All India Confederation of SC/ST organisations Udit Raj has filed a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court that a Buddhist monastery existed on the site of the Babri mosque which was demolished by Hindu Kar Sevaks to build a make-shift Ram temple on December 6, 1992.

Udit Raj has demanded that the site be handed over to the Buddhists for construction of the Baudh Vihar. "We challenged the legality of the recent judgment on Ayodhya dividing the disputed site among Hindus and Muslims. It should be handed over to us as it belongs to the Buddhists", said Raj.
