Ayodhya: Nirmohi Akhara, the main litigant
in the Ayodhya title suits, today said it will approach the
Supreme Court against the Allahabad High Court verdict before
November 30, but would simultaneously continue its efforts to
resolve the dispute amicably.

"The Akhil Bhartiya Sreepanch Ramamnandiya Nirmohi Akhara
Parishad would approach the apex court before November 30, but
at the same time it will continue its efforts for reaching an
amicable solution to the vexed issue," the mahant and sarpanch
of the Nirmohi Akhara, Bhaskar Das, told newspersons here.

He said that representatives of the Akhara will meet the
president of the Sunni Central Waqf Board and members of the
All India Muslim Personal Law Board and request them to
contribute in order to reach an amicable solution to the Ram
Janmabhoomi-Babri Mosque dispute.

"We will meet people of the stature of former President A
P J Abdul Kalam, Swami Ramdev, Sri Ravishankar, the
Shankaracharyas and Mahamandaleshwars to seek their help in
resolving the issue," the mahant said.

Spokesman of the Akhara Ram Das said they will meet Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh in this regard, though the Akhara
would try to keep political people at bay as they create
unnecessary hurdles.

He said that yesterday he met the other main litigant in
the case, Hashim Ansari.

"Hashim Ansari wants peace and tranquility in Ayodhya and
has been working for the same. He told us that though he is
ready that the mosque be built at another place away from the
disputed site, some fundamentalists are against it and are
trying to isolate him (Ansari)," Ram Das said.
