India’s Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Hindus who want to build a temple, or mandir, to honor Lord Ram at a disputed holy site in the town of Ayodhya. The court says Muslims are to get another plot of land to build a mosque. Security has been beefed up in and around the town amid fears of violence. In 1992, right-wing Hindu mobs tore down the 16th century Babri mosque which they believed was built at the birthplace of one of their most revered deities. It sparked riots across India that killed more than 2,000 people. The issue continues to provoke tensions between Hindus and Muslims.
