Supreme Court on the Ayodhya title suit verdict but insisted
that there was growing opinion among the people that the issue
should be resolved through reconciliation and dialogue.
"Any party is free to appeal against any verdict in the
Supreme Court and this right is inherent in the constitution.
As far as I know, AIMPLB was not one of the parties fighting
the Ayodhya title suit (in Allahabad High Court) but it can
go to the apex court," BJP Chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar

Virajmaan in the Ayodhya title suit.
The senior BJP leader maintained that there was an
overwhelming opinion among the people that after the High
Court verdict, the matter should be resolved out of court.
"There is a groundswell of opinion among the people
that the issue should be resolved in a spirit of
reconciliation, amity and brotherhood. Everybody, the
minority community included, should try to find an amicable
solution," he said.
