Ram Temple issue: Shia Waqf board chief to meet Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
The Shia Waqf board chief will on Tuesday meet spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar over the Ram Temple issue, said reports.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has taken an initiative to meet the stakeholders to find an out-of-court settlement to the Ram temple dispute.
Former BJP MP Ram Vilas Vedanti, who is a key person in the Ramjanmabhoomi issue, had on Monday rejected Ravi Shankar's involvement in the issue. Vedanti had said that Sri Sri Ravi Shankar does not qualify to mediate on the matter as he has never been associated with the movement
The Art of Living Foundation had said last week that Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has been in touch with several imams and swamis, including Acharya Ram Das of Nirmohi Akhara, to help find an out-of-court settlement to the Ram Temple dispute. The AIMPLB too said they do not favour arbitration and the dispute can only be settled through adjudication.
The Allahabad High Court, in 2010, had ruled a three-way division of the disputed 2.77-acre area at Ayodhya among Sunni Waqf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and Lord Ram Lalla.
The Supreme Court decided to reopen the hearing after based on 13 appeals filed against the 2010 judgment in four civil suits. The apex court will hear the case on December 5.
