CJI gives mediation committee on Ayodhya dispute time till 15 Aug; 7 things that happened in SC hearing today

While the Muslim parties to the Ayodhya dispute have accepted the mediation process, the Hindu side, while having reservations about it, is not speaking in one voice according to CJI Ranjan Gogoi

New Delhi: Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi-headed Constitution bench of the Supreme Court has given time to the mediation panel till 15 August to find a solution to the politically sensitive Ram JanmabhoomiBabri Masjid land title case of Ayodhya, which will be acceptable to all parties to the dispute. The mediation panel is headed by former Supreme Court judge FMI Kalifulla.

Apart from CJI Ranjan Gogoi, Justice SA Bobde, Justice Dhananjay Y Chandrachud, Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice S Abdul Nazir are members of the Constitution bench that are hearing the case.

What happened with the case today in the highest court of the country may be summarised in seven points.

  1. The bench said if the arbitrators are optimistic about the result and are seeking time till 15 August, there is no harm in giving them time. “This case has been pending for many years,” the bench observed, adding that some more time could surely be given for a resolution of the dispute.

2. The bench said it had received the report of the arbitration committee and read the content. The process is still underway, CJI Ranjan Gogoi said.

3. The CJI added that the bench is considering the report of retired Justice Kalifulla.

4. The report speaks of a positive development of the case, the CJI informed.

5. Some Hindu parties objected to the process of mediation. But the CJI said there was no coordination between the Hindu parties. In other words, they are not speaking in one voice.

6. “We fully support the mediation process,” advocate Rajiv Dhawan, on behalf of the Muslim parties to the dispute, said.

7. The committee has sought extra time for the mediation process to conclude, the CJI informed and added that time is hence being given until 15 August.
