Settle Ram temple matter through negotiations: SC

Settle Ramjanmabhoomi Babri Masjid dispute through negotiations outside court suggests SC

The court asked him to consult the parties and inform it about the decision on March 31.

Khehar said that if negotiations break down, the apex court would appoint a mediator.

He had also said that the hurdles on the path of construction of a grand Ram temple will be gradually removed and its work will soon start in Ayodhya. The court asked parties concerned to sit together to arrive at a consensus.

Saying that negotiated settlement between the parties to the dispute was the best course, Chief Justice Khehar offered to act as a mediator provided that he would not hear the matter on the judicial side.

The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday advised concerned parties to settle the Ayodhya dispute amicably as it was a sensitive and sentimental issue.

The court has asked Swamy to petition again on Friday next week.

The top court's suggestion comes after BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy sought an urgent hearing on the Ayodhya dispute.

Swamy had approached the court to fix early date of hearing in the case as pleadings in the main case are already complete. "Court said that both sides sit together and then come to the court", said Swamy outside the court while talking to reporters.

The Supreme Court has favoured mediation, instead of a court-directed solution, to pave the way for the construction of Ram Mandir at the disputed site in Ayodhya. The parties would need to indicate before the bench whether the matter could be settled through negotiations or not.

In 2010, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court had pronounced its verdict on the long-standing Ayodhya Ramjanmabhumi-Babri Masjid issue and ruled for a three-way division of the disputed area, between the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the party for "Ram Lalla". "The Ram Janmabhoomi is for the Ram Mandir and it should be used for the Ram temple only", he said.
