Hindu Mahasabha said Wednesday to the Supreme Court no kind of mediation is required to resolve the Ram Janam Bhoomi dispute as it is a sentimental issue and the property belongs to Hindu deity.

Hindu Mahasabha rejects SCs appeal to mediate Ayodhya matter

Justice SA Bobde of five-judge constitution bench said the Mahasabha that the whole thing is being pre-judged by them in the Ayodhya matter.

Bobde added, “When the court is ordering mediation, we are not yet assuming somebody will give up something. We think it’s not primarily a dispute over the 1500 yards of land. This is about sentiment or faith. Do not think that we are not conscious of it or do you think that you have more faith than us.”

The Hindu Mahasabha is one of the parties to the Ayodhya land title case. It underlined that decision is being waited since 1950.

The judge said further that the bench know history and has no control over Babur invading India and demolishing the temple, but only the present moment can be dealt.

Meanwhile, senior advocate Rajeev Dhawan, representing the Muslim parties, said the apex court should not get into the sentiments of communities or people.

Justice DY Chandrachud asked Dhawan whether the issue can be mediated as the case is not between two people, but it is between two communities.

The Ayodhya title suit reached apex court in 2010 after petitioners challenged Allahabad High Court verdict, which partitioned the disputed land among three parties – the Ram Lalla, Nirmohi Akhara and Sunni Waqf Board.
