"India’s highest court Monday suspended a historic verdict that had sought to end controversy over one of the most hotly disputed religious sites in the world. Last September, Allahabad High Court ruled that dusty patch of land in Ayodhya, a town in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, which has long been claimed by both Hindu and Muslim groups, should be shared. For more than a century, members of the two religions had fought over the site, once home to a 16th-century mosque." (05/09/11)
