Ram temple: Akhara Parishad to explore out of court settlement as suggested by SC

Haridwar: Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP) will soon hold a meeting to explore the option of an out-of-court settlement of the Ayodhya issue as suggested by the Supreme Court.

ABAP spokesman Mohan Das welcomed the apex court's suggestion of an out of court settlement and said the body will soon have a meeting to explore the possibility.

It may also talk to Muslim religious leaders to work out a plan for the construction of a Ram temple on the site, he said today.

When reminded that efforts at a negotiated settlement had failed in the past, Das said the court's suggestion is welcome and another attempt should be made.

The Supreme Court had on Tuesday suggested an out-of-court settlement of the lingering Ram Janmabhoomi- Babri Masjid land dispute at Ayodhya, observing that issues of "religion and sentiments" can be best resolved through talks.
