SC to pronounce order for mediation in Ayodhya case today
New Delhi: The Supreme Court will on Friday pronounce order on whether to refer Ayodhya’s Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute can be settled through mediation.
A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi had observed that the court was conscious of the gravity of the dispute and the outcome of mediation on the body politic of the country.
While Hindu bodies except Nirmohi Akhara had opposed the suggestion of the apex court to refer the issue for mediation, the Muslim bodies supported it.
Fourteen appeals have been filed in the apex court against the Allahabad High Court’s 2010 judgment, in which it divided the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya equally among the three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
