New Delhi: Ever since the Supreme Court began the final hearing in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi case, different people and groups have come forward as ‘negotiators’ to seek an out-of-court settlement in the decades-old legal battle.

Continuing the individual deliberations, a newly-found organisation, New Bharat Foundation, recently held a discussion on the issue, where members suggested that all religious places should be converted into ‘Manavta Mandir’ (temple of humanity).

As Hindu-Muslim community heads gathered at the discussion, titled ‘Ram Mandir: Chintan Se Samadhan’, chants of ‘Jai Sri Ram’ reverberated in the Delhi University auditorium.

Speaking at the event, Rashtriya Muslim Manch’s speaker Indresh Kumar said, “For Catholic Christians there is Vatican City. They have many churches but not all are Vatican. Similarly, there are many mosques but the holiest ones are considered to be in Mecca and Medina. In India, there are many Ram Mandirs, but all those temples are not Ram janambhoomi. There is only one Ram Janam Sthal. Over the years, some people have tried to dilute its significance by referring it as mere temple of Lord Ram.”

Kumar further said that the religious places of all communities should be converted into “Manavta Mandir”.

Sharing the same views, another representative of the panel, UP Shia Waqf Board chairperson Waseem Rizvi said that their endeavor is to strike a compromise.

“We have no problem if the masjid moves out of the area in Ayodhya and a temple is built instead. The mosque can be built in Lucknow, and we would like to call it Masjid-e-Aman (mosque of peace),” he said.

Mohammad Shabbir, who was officiating VC of AMU, said that he backs for out of court settlement in the issue. He gave examples of international settlements in disputed cases and said that it can be worked out here as well.

The Supreme court will resume hearing on the ongoing Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi case on April 27.

New Bharat Foundation co-convener Vikkramaditya Singh claimed that their organisation has a core committee of seven people with equal participation of members from Muslim community. “Our organization is Delhi specific, but we will slowly expand,” he added.

Others present were Yatinder Singh, Professor Rakesh Kumar, former IPS Vikram Singh and Kusumlata Kedia from Varanasi. Minister of State Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju had also graced the event but did not speak at the event.
