New Delhi: Indian Supreme Court on Tuesday urged all parties to solve Babri Masjid and Ram Mandir dispute through mutual negotiations.
The Chief Justice JS Khekhar declared the issue sentimental and religious and showed willingness to sit as an arbitrator between Hindus and Muslims. The court also asked all parties to give up some of their demands to reach the solution.
The suggestion from him came after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy sought urgent hearing on the Ayodhya dispute.
The suggestion was warmly welcomed by the Bharatiya Janata Party’s leaders and they called it the best way to solve the dispute.
However, Babri Masjid Action Committee has rejected the decision and asked the court to solve the matter.
The conflict is long pending in the court. Babri Masjid was built by Babar Mughal Emperor at Ayodhya and is one of the great mosques in India.
The land where the moqsue was built is variously claimed as the birth place of Hindus’ god Ram.
The mosque was demolished by extremist mad Hindus on December 6, 1992; they were encouraged to commit the heinous act by their top leaders of RSS and its affiliated groups BJP and VHP.
Earlier this month the SC refused to dismiss the case against BJP’s leaders who were involved in the martyrdom of the mosque.
The decision came up when firebrand Yogi Adityanath took the charge of chief minister’s office in Uttar Pardesh (UP), the state in which Babri mosque was present.
Yogi, who is against the Muslims and aimed to clean the land of Muslims, repeatedly asks to build the Mandir on disputed land. The suggestion of Indian CJ could move towards another dispute between two nations as the UP CM will increase his efforts to build Ram Mandir.
