Ayodhya Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid Case Hearing Supreme Court Today HIGHLIGHTS: The bench had on August 2 taken note of the report of the three-member committee, headed by former apex court judge FMI Kalifulla, that the mediation proceedings which went on for about four months have not resulted in any final settlement.
It seems intriguing that, instead of a neutral place, the Supreme Court has chosen Faizabad as the venue for talks to resolve the Ayodhya dispute. Besides being Ayodhya’s larger twin city, it is a communally sensitive place.
The SC bench constituted a three-member panel which also includes Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Senior Advocate Sriram Panchu. It asked the panel to give the progress report of the matter in four weeks and to complete the talks in eight weeks.
Ayodhya mediation: The 'Muslim' parties have told the Bench they are willing to participate in the process of mediation. But counsel for Ramlalla Virajman and Mahant Suresh Das have opposed the proposal.
The Centre on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court asking that it be allowed to had over the non-disputed land acquired around the disputed site to its original owners. Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath welcomed the Centre's move.
