Chairman of the UP Shia Central Waqf Board Waseem Rizvi today met Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravishankar and after the meet said that Ram Temple should be built on the Ram Janmbhoomi site.
The meet was intended to find an amicable out-of-court settlement in the legal case over the Babri-Masjid-Ram Temple dispute in Ayodhya.
Following to the meet he stated: “I met Gurudev Sri Sri ji and insisted that the Ram Temple should be built on the Ram Janmbhoomi site itself and that there was no need to construct a mosque there. The mosque should come up in a Muslim-dominated locality, if required, as there are already enough of them to cater to the Muslim population in Ayodhya and Faizabad.”
Rizvi said the AIMPLB has no role to play in the dispute as it was not a party in the on-going case and only the Shia Waqf Board has the claim and right to the land in question.
“I have met all the Mahants and those fighting the court battle for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. They have all agreed to a mutually agreeable solution. The Shia Waqf Board is drafting the terms and conditions of a mutual agreement,” he said.
