Supreme Court appoints panel to resolve Ayodhya case
March 9, 2019
The Supreme Court has appointed a three member panel that will act as mediator in the Ayodhya land dispute case.
The Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute case which has been going on for years has been handed over to the panel.
The Supreme Court had earlier directed that the case needs to be resolved through peaceful talks and mediation between the concerned parties.
The three members of the panel are retired Supreme Court judge FM Kalifulla who will be chairman, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, spiritual leader and founder of the Art of Living Foundation and Senior advocate Sriram Panchu.
68 years old FM Kalifulla was an active labour law practitioner while Panchu has written books on mediation and is considered an expert in the matter.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar tweeted,
Respecting everyone, turning dreams to reality, ending long-standing conflicts happily and maintaining harmony in society - we must all move together towards these goals.
The Supreme Court has instructed that the panel needs to complete the process within eight weeks. Although the panel will need to submit its initial first status report in four weeks.
The panel will start its mediation process within a week in Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh. The panel members have been given the authority to invite more members to the team if required.
The court has banned the media from reporting information about the mediation proceedings while they are being carried out.
Social media has been questioning the ability of the panel to resolve the issue.
