New Delhi: Once again the process to settle out of court solution for the vexed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute through talks has been accelerated.
The Supreme Court is all set to hear the Ramjanmabhoomi – Babri Masjid case from December 5 – on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the demolition of the structure.
Shia Central Waqf Board Chairman Wasim Rizvi who said that Ram temple can be built at the disputed site if a mosque is also constructed at a reasonable distance and in a Muslim-dominated area met VHP leaders to prepare a proposal for a peaceful settlement of the disputed site.
Some days ago All India Muslim Personal Law Board Member Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi met Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Bangalore. As per sources he even arranged telephonic talk between Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and AIMPLB General Secretary Maulana Wali Rahmani although Maulana Rahmani later denied it.
It is also speculated that Board’s another trusted and founder member Kamal Farooqui has met Sri Sri early in the morning 7 O’clock on Manday at Vasant Vihar and discussed about the settlement formula. Till now Kamal Farooqui hasn’t issued any statement and later theShahab.com came to know that he left for Srinagar after the meeting.
If this is true then will the AIMPLB again try to avert by saying it was just a personal meeting by a member? Should any member be allowed to conduct personal meeting in these circumstances or there are some advancement happening from which the community is deliberately kept in dark?
Maulana Sajjad Nomani who is AIMPLB National Spokesperson has said that if anybody’s involvement in unofficial meeting has been proven then disciplinary action will be taken against the responsible member but no action has been initiated till this writing.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will be going to Ayodhya on November 16 and he will be meeting several stakeholders including Iqbal Ansari.
Meanwhile, President of Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad, Mahant Narendra Giri after meeting with Wasim Rizvi while talking to reporters said, “Shia Waqf Board has agreed to our terms that there were enough mosques in Ayodhya and was no need for constructing a new one. Also, no mosque named ‘Babri Masjid’ will be built anywhere in the country as it may lead to animosity among two sections of society.”
