Sri Sri Ravi Shankar should meet only those who want agreement: UP Shia Waqf Board
UP Shia Waqf Board Chief Wasim Rizvi, who met Sri Sri Ravi Shankar over the Ram Temple issue today, said that the spiritual guru should meet only those who want an agreement.
"The whole country respects Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, I am sure the issue will be solved..We have Have requested Sri Sri Ravi Shankar that talks should be held only with those who want an agreement," Rizvi told the media after the meeting.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has taken an initiative to meet the stakeholders to find an out-of-court settlement to the Ram temple dispute.
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.
