Syed Shahid Hussain Rizvi, one of the advocates for the Board said that he could not comment on the mediation settlement. However I can say that if there is a consensus among all the parties in the case, then it would be a win-win situation and there will be no need for a judgment, he also added.

According to the settlement proposed by the parties, the Board would be willing to give up its claim on the 2.77 acre disputed land if their conditions are met. The first condition is to maintain status quo of all religious sites in India as per how they existed at the time of independence.
