New Delhi: The demolition of Babri Masjid and debate centring on the Ram Janmabhoomi has been a longstanding pickle for the Indian government. To resolve the conflict in a peaceful manner, Hindu and Muslim leaders conducted a meeting on Monday for a negotiated settlement.

The President of All India Akhara Parishad, Mahant Narendra Giri, on Monday, attended a meeting with the oldest litigant of the Babri Masjid case, Hashim Ansari.

Along with Mahant Narendra Giri and Hashim Ansari, the meeting was attended by other sadhus and mahants who shared their opinion on the contentious matter.

After a brief half-an-hour meeting, Giri said that the parties involved were trying their best to reach a negotiated settlement. “We want the Supreme Court to conduct day-to-day hearing the case,” Giri said.

Ansari reiterated Giri’s comment and said that all they wanted was a peaceful solution to the issue.
