The Ayodhya mediation panel, which was allowed time till July 31 to continue talks to develop consensus between Hindu and Muslim parties on the temple dispute, has submitted a report in a sealed cover+. Based on the report, the top court will decide its further proceedings on Friday.
In the last hearing, the court said it had received a report of the three-member mediation panel, headed by former apex court judge FMI Kalifulla, and took on record the contents. The other two members of the panel are spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and senior advocate Sriram Panchu.
The court has barred publication of the report’s contents as the panel will continue the mediation process till the end of the month.
The court had then also said that hearing of Ayodhya issue would take place on August 2. The Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, however, will hear the matter on August 3.
The top court had on March 8 appointed the three-member panel to talk to all stakeholders and try to reach a consensus to resolve the Ayodhya row.
Recommending mediation, the court had said it was looking for “a possibility of healing relationships”. It expected mediation to succeed in developing a consensus on the sensitive matter. It asked the panel to conduct in-camera proceedings.
Earlier, the Supreme Court on Thursday on July 18, 2019, ruled that it will hear the Ayodhya land title case in an open court hearing on August 2 and directed the mediation panel to continue with the process and submit a fresh status report on July 31 on the Ramjanambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute that has lingered for centuries.
A constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, took into record the status report submitted by the mediation panel and said, “We now fix the date of hearing on August 2. We request the mediation committee to inform the outcome of the proceedings as of July 31.”
The mediation panel comprises apex court former judge FMI Kalifulla, spiritual guru and founder of Art of Living foundation Sri Sri Ravishankar and senior advocate and eminent negotiator Sriram Panchu.
“We request the Mediation Panel to inform the court the outcome of the mediation proceedings by 1.8.2019 to enable us to proceed further in the matter in terms of the present directions.
“We now fix the hearing of the cases on 2.8.2019. The Bench will assemble again on the said date i.e. 2.8.2019 at 2.00 p.m.”
Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer are the other members of the bench.
As, per Hari Shankar Jain, the Ld. Advocate for Hindu Mahasabha, there is presumably nothing progress in the mediation. So, the apex court must go into daily hearing to resolve the dispute of Ayodhya land row to make it convenient to start the Ram Janmabhoomi Temple without any further delay.
Eminent Hindu interlocutor and Hindu Existence Web Editor, Upananda Brahmachari told HENB, “The Supreme Court must not spoil any time through mediation and take short time to dispose the case suitably, so that a magnificent Ram temple can be erected in the place where Lord Ram was born as per the belief of a billion of Hindus in this world.”
