Mr. Ravi Shankar is scheduled to visit Ayodhya on Thursday to meet the stakeholders in the legal dispute.
Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on Wednesday called upon Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath to allegedly discuss the Babri Masjid-Ram Mandir issue.
While there was no official word on it yet, it came a day after Mr. Adityanath welcomed Mr. Ravi Shankar’s efforts at mediation for an out-of-court settlement in the contentious issue.
Mr. Adityanath on Tuesday said that he welcomed efforts to forge a mediation in the case but a solution through discussion would be possible only if both the parties consented to it. “Efforts at any level are welcome. But one side has always run away from the discussion table,” Mr. Adityanath said.
“The problem is not that there should be talks, it is that both sides should mutually agree to hold talks [as the case is in the Supreme Court]. It can give good results but intentions should be good,” he said.
The CM said he always held that discussion should be used to resolve any kind of struggle. Mr. Ravi Shankar is scheduled to visit Ayodhya on Thursday to meet the stakeholders in the legal dispute of the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi case.
In Lucknow, he is invited to attend a function held by the Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir Nirman Nyas, a local trust claiming to play interlocutor between the two sides.
