SC suggests out of court settlement on Ram Temple dispute

The issue of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, which has been pending for six years, should be sorted out outside court, the Supreme Court said today. The top court assured that it would step in only if the matter can’t be resolved through talks.

Subramanian Swamy had requested the court to take up the Ram Mandir appeal, which has been pending for six years before the top court.

The court asks parties concerned to sit together to arrive
at a consensus.


“It is an issue of sentiment and religion. First sit together and sort out. Both sides have moderators and hold meeting,” said Chief Justice JS Khehar, while hearing a petition by senior BJP leader.

In response, Swamy said it is difficult to make both communities sit together and only judicial intervention is needed.

The Chief Justice then asked Swamy to mention the case on March 31
and if the parties want him to mediate, then he is ready for the task.
