Ayodhya title dispute: Mediation to be or not to be, Apex Court to decide on Friday

New Delhi, Mar 7: The Supreme Court on Friday will deliver a verdict on whether mediation is required or not in Ram Janambhoomi Babri Masjid title dispute.

The verdict will be pronounced by a five-judge Constitutional Bench, led by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi.

Earlier, the Apex Court has asked the parties to give the name of “mediators” if the decades-old case is send to mediation.

Moreover, the court has also observed that the mediation if ordered, will take place “confidentially” as the case is sensitive and have not one but multiple mediators.

There are 14 appeals files against the 2010 Allahabad HC verdict of partitioning the disputed 2.77 acre land equally among three parties---Ram Lalla, Sunni Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara.

Earlier, on April 19, 2017, the SC has said that L K Adwani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti would be prosecuted for serious offence of criminal conspiracy in the politically sensitive 1992 Babri Masjid Demolition case and ordered day to day hearing and trial to be concluded in two years.

On September 27, 2018, the Apex Court also refused to refer reconsideration of its 1994 judgment that mosque was not integral to Islam, to a five Judges Constitution bench. (UNI)
