India's Supreme Court has appointed an arbitration panel to mediate in a decades-long dispute over a religious site in northern Uttar Pradesh state's Ayodhya city.

The court on Friday ruled that the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute, as the contentious case is known as, will now be mediated through a panel headed by retired Supreme Court judge FM Kalifulla.

The other members of the arbitration panel include senior advocate, Sriram Panchu, and self-styled Hindu godman, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

The 70-year-old case involves a dispute over a one-hectare site in Ayodhya, where right-wing Hindus plan to build a temple dedicated to Lord Ram on the ruins of a 16th-century mosque demolished in 1992.

The Supreme Court-appointed arbitration panel has been given eight weeks to come to an agreement, which coincides with India's national elections, due in April and May.

Hindu nationalist forces affiliated with India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have ratcheted up their long-standing demand for the construction of a temple in the run-up to the election.

'Festering wound'
A five-judge Supreme Court bench, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, said the order is a bid to "heal the hearts if possible".

The court described the dispute as a "festering wound" which has touched the religious sentiments of Hindus and Muslims for decades and led to multiple rounds of communal violence.

In 1992, a Hindu mob tore down the Mughal-era mosque, triggering riots that killed about 2,000 people in one of the worst instances of communal violence in India since the 1947 partition of the country.

Out of concern for the sensitive nature of the subject, the court has directed the panel members to maintain utmost secrecy. The media has also been banned from covering its proceedings.

While holding control over the controversial site, the Supreme Court had been weighing petitions from both the communities on what should be built there.

Earlier, a five-judge panel, headed by Gogoi, had asked both Hindu and Muslim groups involved in the case to explore the possibility of resolving their dispute through mediation.

India's most divisive issue
After lower courts heard the case for several years, the Supreme Court took up the matter in 2011, when it suspended a high court ruling that the disputed site be split into three parts, with one portion going to Muslims and the other two to Hindus.

Hindu and Muslim groups challenged the verdict and appealed to the Supreme Court, which criticised the ruling and said the high court overstepped its authority by ordering the partition.

Hindu groups say there used to be a temple at the site before the mosque was built by Mughal ruler Zahir-ud Din Babar in the early 16th century.

It is the most divisive dispute between India's majority Hindus and minority Muslims, who make up around 14 percent of the country's 1.3 billion people.

Right-wing groups affiliated to the BJP had called for legislation to allow a temple to be built, bypassing the Supreme Court. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi later said the judicial process should be allowed to take its course.

Far-right Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), or the World Hindu Council, which has led the Ram temple campaign over the past three decades, organised rallies in recent months to press its case.

This is what one of the mediator had said.

"If Ram Mandir issue is not solved, we will have a Syria [war] in India," says Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

The spiritual leader claimed that the only solution is for Muslims to give up their claim to the site and build another mosque elsewhere.

Why is the SC not giving a verdict just on the merits of the case. This is because no one in India can go against the "will of the majority". This is why Indian Democracy works.

The Babri case has already been decided. This committee with a "muslim head" will just be a face in front of the world for global straregic purposes.

Muslims must in one voice reject all these drama committees and only demand court order like other land dispute cases. Everything else is Brahminical trickery.

Follow the law of the land. If the courts decide the masjid should be knocked down then so be it.

It is the incumbent obligation of the down-trodden, weak and morally degenerate Muslim community of India to adopt all lawful methods, such as the courts, in a bid to reclaim the Babri Musjid land. There should be absolutely no compromise. It is haraam to accept any other land in exchange for the Babri Musjid land. That Land will remain a Musjid and shall, Insha-Allah, reclaim its status in Jannat.


If the community fails in its bid in the court, they should accept it as Allah’s Decree, increase Istighfaar and Taubah, and reform their absolutely rotten moral condition, and this has greater applicability for the Ulama. If Muslims are unable to reclaim the Babri Musjid by lawful means, let the followers of the Devil keep it. But never should Muslims settle and compromise.
