Property Rights in India

My close friend and colleague Shruti Rajagopalan has an article at the WSJ on the Allahabad High Court's recent decision concerning the Babri Mosque. Here's an excerpt:
With such a precedent, state legislatures are too feeble to prevent similar disputes in other religious sites where Hindus and Muslims pray together, such as Mathura and Varanasi. In a land of 820 million Hindus who worship several hundred forms of God, the danger of expropriation in the name of faith is real and imminent.
