Will make best efforts to amicably resolve Ayodhya dispute: Kalifulla

New Delhi: Former Supreme Court Judge F.M.I. Kalifulla, who is heading the SC-appointed panel for mediation into Ayodhya dispute, on Friday said the committee would make its best efforts to “amicably resolve” the issue.

“All I can say at this juncture is that if the committee has been constituted by the Supreme Court, we will take every offer to amicably resolve the dispute,” Kalifulla said.

The panel comprises spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and senior advocate Shriram Panchu besides Kalifulla. The panel has been given the mandate to include more members if needed.

After he was appointed as a member of the panel, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said: “Respecting everyone, turning dreams to reality, ending long-standing conflicts happily and maintaining harmony in society – we must all move together towards these goals.”
