No chance of settlement on Ram Temple: Mohan Bhagwat to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar


New Delhi: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has rejected any moves by Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar towards an out-of-court settlement in the Ayodhya Ram Temple issue.

“There is news coming in the media about someone well-known. I got to know from there that something like this is afoot. He also came to me,” Bhagwat said.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had, earlier this month, travelled to Lucknow and Ayodhya to speak to all major stake holders to find an amicable solution to the issue.

However, most of the concerned parties remained cold to the proposal espoused by the spiritual leader.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat made it clear that any decision on the issue has to be made by seers and saints who have led the movement.

“If anyone wants to make an effort, let them do that. It is a democracy,” he added in an oblique reference to the initiative taken by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

The Supreme Court apex court will start hearing the Ram Temple title suit from the first week of December.
