    New Delhi, November 15: Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik on Wednesday stressed that the Supreme Court's verdict on the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid issue would be binding. He also expressed the hope that efforts to resolve the dispute would bear fruit.

    The governor's comments come in the wake of a meeting today between Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath in Lucknow, ahead of the spiritual leader's interaction with stakeholders in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janambhoomi dispute.

    "This (mediation) kind of effort is being made by those who believe it will help resolve the issue at the earliest. I wish their efforts bear fruit. But the apex court's final verdict will be binding," Naik told reporters on the sidelines of an event here.

    The apex court has said the issue should be amicably resolved through a cordial meeting of all parties.

    Naik, while thanking those making efforts to settle the matter, also said the court's decision would be the final one and everyone must agree to it.

    Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had said in Delhi earlier this week that he was voluntarily mediating on the temple-mosque dispute and would meet all stakeholders in Ayodhya on November 16.

    Meanwhile, the Supreme Court will hear the case on December 5, a day before the 25th anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition.
