Ayodhya title suit: Nirmohi Akhara wants Kalam, Deoband, Shri Shri Ravi Shankar to mediate

October 12, 2010 21:27 IST
Nirmohi Akhara, the main plaintiff in the Ayodhya title suit, wants the mediation of former President APJ Abdul Kalam, Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoban and the national organisation of Muslim ulemas-- Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind -- along with Hindu religious leaders like Baba Ramdev, Shri Shri Ravi Shankar and Murari Bapu.

Talking to PTI in Ayodhya on Tuesday, Pujari Ram Das, special emissary of ailing Nirmohi Akhara chief, Mahant Bhaskar Das, said, "We have lighted a candle of peace from Ayodhya and now it is also the responsibility of those people who command respect in their communities and general society of India to protect it and spread it."

Naming Kalam, Darul Uloom of Deoband, Jamiat-Ulema-Hind, Ram Das said, "It is our joint responsibility to establish peace in India. So, people from the Muslim society and Hindu saints like Baba Ramdev, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Murai Bapu, who have great following among the masses, must join hands to resolve the Ayodhya dispute."

Asked what is the proposed formula of negotiations, Das replied that it is yet to be discussed and planned. "When great brains unite, the formula that will be worked out will also be great and will play a crucial role in establishing peace and Hindu-Muslim brotherhood in India," Das said.
