Babri Masjid Action Committee says no out-of-court settlement

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Virtually ruling out an out-of-settlement of the Ayodhya dispute as suggested by the Supreme Court, the Babri Masjid Action Committee on Tuesday said it was open only to mediation by the Chief Justice of (CJI) himself.

"We have faith if the CJI himself mediates or nominates a team of Supreme judges or itself hears the matter. But we are not willing to accept an out-of-court settlement," said Babri Masjid Action Committee convener Zafaryab Jilani.

"An amicable solution is impossible. This has to be dealt in the court itself. It has been long pending in the court. If the court passes any order to that effect (amicable solution), we will think about future course of action," he added.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice J.S. Khehar said amicable settlement of the Ayodhya dispute was a better course than insistence on judicial pronouncement.
