Ayodhya case: SC reserves order on mediation

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has reserved its order on whether or not the land dispute case of Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid should be resolved through mediation.

Hearing the politically sensitive case of decades old, the five-judge Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that amicably settling the case through mediation would help heal the relations.

Of the three parties, namely, Ram Lalla (the deity), the Nirmohi Akhara and the Sunni Waqf Board, the Hindu group representing the deity expressed its opposition to mediation.

Advocate CS Vaidyanathan argued that finding an alternate place for a mosque would be the only solution. He said that Ayodhya as birth place of Lord Ram is recorded and it is a matter of faith and building temple in that place cannot be negotiated.

In 2010, the Allahabad High Court had ruled that the disputed land be equally divided among the three parties, all of which rejected the verdict and approached the Supreme Court.
