In the most optimistic decision of the day -

"The Supreme Court of India has delayed a ruling expected on Friday on the long-running Ayodhya Mosque dispute. It said it was allowing a deferral until next week to allow Hindus and Muslims time to resolve the 150-year-old dispute on their own." (Full Story)

Because all they need is an extra weekend.

After 150 years.

To be fair, since 2000 people died in rioting related to the site 18 years ago, I'm sure I wouldn't want to have to announce a decision that could enrage one side or the other, or possibly even both.
How do you judge even handedly between two groups, both with good claims and with very deeply held, sincere convictions? I think this could be a much more global question than I first started thinking about.
