Sri Sri Ravi Shankar meets Adityanath over Ayodhya issue

Adjust Comment Print

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met Spiritual Leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at the latter's residence in Lucknow on Wednesday, in a bid to resolve Ram Temple dispute.

In 2010, the Allahabad High Court had accepted the disputed site in Ayodhya as the birthplace of Lord Ram.

"The problem is not that there should be talks, it is that both sides should mutually agree to hold talks [as the case is in the Supreme Court]".

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar responded saying, "You don't think you are sick or something is wrong with you".

The spiritual leader is also scheduled to meet senior Muslim cleric Khalid Rashid Firangimahali later in the day.

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.

The meeting is set in the backdrop of Ayodhya issue.

On the question of AIMPLB and AIBMAC rejecting his formula, Sri Sri Ravishanker clarified that "when no formula or proposal was sent to them then where is the question of rejection by them", he pointed.

Welcoming the statement of the Shia Personal Law Board, Owaisi tweeted, "Ulti hogayee sab tadbeeran". The Hindus, however, claim that a Ram Temple that originally stood there was demolished to construct the mosque.

Speaking on the matter on November 14, Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvihad said that the government is not averse to any out-of-court solution to the Ram Mandir issue, and emphasised that it is "not involved" in any offers to negotiate by anyone. In this connection, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has called upon Uttar Pradesh state chief minister Yogi Adityanath. The Art of Living Foundation founder had made a similar effort in 2003 to resolve the dispute but it had failed.
