Nirmohi Akhara wants Kalam, Deoband in Ayodhya mediation

Ayodhya Verdict: Future hangs in balance

No doubt, there has been peace and tranquillity in India after the judgment on the Babri masjid-Ram janambhoomi dispute. No untoward incident has taken place in the country. But the credit for this must go to the Muslims who, although generally sullen  »

Hindu Mahasabha too not satisfied with the Ayodhya Verdict

Lucknow: Nirmohi Akhara, a key party in the Ayodhya legal battle, wants former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, spiritual gurus Baba Ramdev and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar as well as the leading Deoband Islamic seminary to help achieve a negotiated settlement.

"Now that the torch of peace and harmony has been lit in Ayodhya, we want popular spiritual leaders of both Hindus and Muslims to come forward and strengthen efforts for an out-of-court final settlement without allowing the dispute to be re-ignited before the Supreme Court where it could just hang fire indefinitely again," Ram Das of the Akhara told mediapersons in Ayodhya Wednesday.

He is the secretary of 89-year-old Akhara chief Mahant Bhaskar Das. The Akhara has shown keen interest in talks initiated by Hashim Ansari on behalf of Muslims for a final settlement on the vexed Ayodhya issue after the Sep 30 Ayodhya High Court ruling.

Ram Das said: "It is the duty of these prominent people to make efforts for resolving the dispute. After all, they are all institutions with a large following, so their word will matter.

"I am firmly of the view that when such people meet with an open mind, they will be able to successfully bring the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Mosque issue to a close, through an amicable negotiated settlement, but would also pave way for bringing an end to India's communal politics."

He, however, declined to divulge any detail of the "compromise formula" believed to have been prepared by Nirmohi Akhara in consultation with Ansari and other local Muslims in Ayodhya.

As a reciprocal gesture, Ram Das is all set to join another prominent Ayodhya seer Mahant Gyan Das to pay a visit to Ansari Wednesday evening to thank him for taking the lead in showing the path of peace.

It was 90-year-old Ansari, who chose to wave the olive branch and walk to the residence of Gyan Das. Gas not only heads Ayodhya's prominent Hanuman Garhi temple but is also chief of the All India Akhara Parishad.

The reconciliatory approach followed the Allahabad High Court's Sep 30 order, dividing the disputed Ayodhya plot into three parts - two going to separate Hindu parties and one to Muslims.
