NEW DELHI: Hoping for a favourable judgment in the Ayodhya case, key saffron organisations – RSS and VHP – on Friday maintained that they have neither been approached nor did they participate in any mediation exercise, calling media reports a “mischief and an effort to cause confusion”.
“Our view is that all the hurdles in the way of constructing a Ram Temple at Ayodhya should be removed. Now the hearing has been completed… We are hoping that the verdict would be in favour of Hindus,” RSS joint secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshisaid on the last day of the Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal meet in Bhubaneswar. Asked about the efforts to settle the matter out of court, Joshi said, “These efforts were made to resolve this issue amicably.
Had this happened, this would have enhanced Bharat’s reputation across the world. But this couldn’t happen and the matter went on for very long in the courts.”
Reacting to some media reports about a settlement on the issue by Sunni Waqf Board, VHP’s working president Alok Kumar said his organisation is clear that the Hindu side had not been approached and didn’t participate in any mediation exercise.
“The SC has finally heard the matter, the hearings continued for 40 working days … Reviving the mediation bogey at the fag end of the hearing appears to be a mischief and an effort to cause confusion,” Kumar said. All parties now should wait for the judgement of the SC, he said.
After concluding hearings, the five-judge Constitution bench, headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi, granted three days to contesting parties to file written notes on ‘moulding of relief’ or narrowing down the issues on which the court is required to adjudicate.
