The Supreme Court on Monday has adjourned the Ram Janmabhumi-Babri Masjid title dispute of Ayodhya to January 2019 when it will fix the date for commencing hearing on the matter.

The petitioners are challenging the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict that land should not be divided into three equal parts.

Commenting on the apex court step, Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) leader and Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Keshav Prasad Maurya said, "I don't want to comment since it's the decision of Supreme Court. However, the adjournment of hearing doesn't send a good message."

In 2010, Allahabad High Court ruled the verdict that the 2.5 acres disputed land of Ayodhya site should be divided equally between the Nirmohi Akhara, Lord Ram Deity and Sunni Waqf Board.

The decade-long Ayodhya case has taken many turns till now, since December 6, 1992, when thousands of right-wing activists knocked down the Babri mosque in Ayodhya saying it was built on a Temple marking the birthplace of Lord Ram which was destroyed in the 16th century.

Around 2,000 people across the country were killed in the riots that followed the Babri Masjid demolition.
