While citizens were glued to their television screens to catch live updates of the historic Ayodhya judgment by the CJI-led Supreme Court bench, hashtag #hindumuslimbhaibhai was seen trending on Twitter. 

Many took to the microblogging site stating whatever might be the judgment, 'hindumuslimbhaibhai' meaning Hindu and Muslim brotherhood shall remain in the country.

'AyodhyaVerdict' was the top trend across the globe with over 206 thousand tweets while 'HinduMuslimBhaiBhai' was trending fourth worldwide with over 18.7 thousand tweets.

The controversial Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid issue has been a source of major contention between Hindus and Muslims for over 130 years in India.

The 1992 Babri Masjid demolition and the 2002 Godhra riots have been evidence of the large scale violence that ensued due to the disputed land. 

The temple town of Ayodhya has been turned into a fortress to avoid communal violence during the course of the day.

Thousands of security personnel have been deployed to prevent any violent incidents across the country. Social media has also been put under surveillance to maintain peace across the country. 

Media organisations were asked to treat the judgment in a sensitive manner and avoid sensationalism.

However, rather than focussing on the judgment of Supreme Court netizens encouraged the spreading of peace. Twitteratis shared messages of peace, unity and non-violence as the Ayodhya verdict unfolded. 

In a unanimous judgment, the five-member Constitution bench, comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, CJI designate S A Bobde, Justices D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S A Nazeer directed the Centre to form an Ayodhya trust for building a Ram temple and announced a five-acre alternate land for the Muslims.
