Nov 15 2017 by Desiree Burns
Summary: After much controversy over Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar meeting large number spiritual leaders from different religions in a bid to resolve the Ram Temple dispute, he has chose to visit the controversial site at Ayodhya on Thursday. Thirteen different appeals have been filed against Allahabad high court verdict that divided the 2.73 acres disputed land into three parts among Ram Lalla, Sunni Waqf Board, and Nirmohi Akhara.
"We welcome efforts of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar". The Supreme Court had however suspended the judgement in 2011. "But talks for an out of court settlement will not succeed till Muslim Personal Law Board is involved in talks", said Maulana Khalid Rashid Firangi Mahali, a member of AIMPLB.
Previously, giving his inputs on the Ayodhya issue, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar while speaking to NewsX had said that this is not the first time an amicable solution to Ayodhya dispute is being ensured.
Ravishankar is scheduled to visit Ayodhya to meet various parties in the dispute on Thursday.
"Lord Rama is the matter of faith for crores of Hindus.the idol is installed at his birthplace and puja is continuously going on.no power can shift it anywhere else", he said, adding that the matter of the Ram Janmbhoomi temple will be discussed in the 15th "Dharam Sansad" in Karnataka between November 24 to 26.
Earlier, Owaisi had said, "All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has clearly stated that they would not accept any such offer".
Art of Living Founder Sri Sri Ravishankar met UP CM Yogi Adityanath to discuss developments on the Ram Temple movement. The Art of Living Foundation founder had made a similar effort in 2003 to resolve the dispute but it had failed.
