Faizabad: One of the main litigants in Ayodhya title suits case Hashim Ansari on Saturday said the formula for a peaceful solution to the vexed issue would be presented before the Supreme Court only after being approved by top Islamic institutions and concerned parties.

The formula will be put forth before the apex court after
getting it approved by all related parties and top Islamic
institutions by the end of this month, Ansari said to a news agency after discussing the issue with Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind leader Captain
Afzal Ahmad Khan at the latter`s residence here.

"I have discussed all points with Captain Afzal about the
formula for a peaceful solution of Ayodhya issue. Both of us
will further discuss it with top Islamic institutions like
Darul Uloom Deoband, Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, Jamat-e-Islami,
Sunni Central Waqf Board and other Muslim parties and
litigants related with Babri Masjid case," Ansari said.

Mahant Gyan Das, who is also one of the main litigants in
the case seeking a peaceful solution to the issue, said he is
also not in favour of the formula being presented to the
Supreme Court before being accepted by all litigants in the
case.

Das and Ansari had told reporters yesterday that they had
worked out a formula and would present it to the Supreme Court
to resolve the vexed issue.

They had said they would wait for all the petitioners in
the case to reach the apex court for challenging Allahabad
High Court judgement as decided by them and there they would
present the formula worked out by them in a written form.

Ansari and Das, who had earlier announced that they would
make the formula public by December 10, today said they were
not in favour of making it public.

Accusing the `outsiders`, including the VHP of conspiring
to abort the negotiations for a amicable solution to the
dispute Das said, "The VHP will be interested in raising the
temperature like it did in 1989, they just want to fool people
by talking of Ram Lalla."
