Sit together and arrive at consensus to end Babri Masjid/Ram Temple dispute

Raja Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy sought an urgent hearing of Ayodhya dispute in a plea to the Supreme Court.

Stressing upon settling the matter amicably, the SC bench of CJI JS Khehar said that "if the parties want him to mediate, then he is ready for the task".

However, Swamy said, "Swamy said that there had been numerous attempts for a negotiated settlement and that now judicial intervention is required in the issue".

The apex court has asked the concerned parties to sit together and arrive at a consensus, adding that since the topic is a sensitive and sentimental issue, it's best the issue be settled amicably.

Swamy sought an urgent hearing into the matter and mentioned to the apex court that the case is pending since last six years, to which the Supreme Court asked Swamy to mention it on or before March 31.

He had also said that the hurdles on the path of construction of a grand Ram temple will be gradually removed and its work will soon start in Ayodhya. Leading portal News18.com quoted Zafaryab Jilani, Convenor of the Babri Masjid Action Committee (BMAC) as saying, "An amicable solution is impossible".

The TV debate was the top trending topic on Twitter in France on Monday before it even started. The first-round vote is set for April 23; the top two candidates go to a runoff May 7.

BJP leader Subramanium Swamy mentioned the case for early hearing today.

"You must make fresh attempts to arrive at a consensual decision".

The court said that it may also appoint a principal negotiator if the parties want. "Even the services of my brother judges can be availed for the objective", the CJI said.

Ayodhya Ram temple issue: Supreme Court said it should be resolved through talks.

The Supreme Court's advice to settle the Ayodhya dispute outside the court drew mixed reactions from political parties, RSS and BMAC (Babri Masjid Action Committee).

In his petition, Swamy had claimed that under the practices prevalent in Islamic countries, a mosque could be shifted to any other place for public purposes like constructing road, whereas a temple once constructed cannot be touched.
