Ayodhya : Just two days after several media reports claimed that the Muslim Parties have accepted the proposal to drop their claim from disputed Ram temple land in Ayodhya, a group of five lawyers, representing the Muslim side, on Friday, put out a statement denying that they had agreed to any such proposal to a Supreme Court-appointed mediation panel.

In the statement, a lawyers from Muslim side said, “We must make it absolutely clear that we do not accept the proposal which has been leaked to the media, nor the process of mediation itself and nor the manner in which the withdrawal of claim has been suggested as a compromise.”
The lawyers also said that only the Waqf Board, among the Muslim parties, had accepted the settlement proposal made by the mediation panel and accused the panel and the Nirvani Akhara of leaking the report to the media.
A three-member panel created by the Supreme Court on the matter had submitted its report of Wednesday to the five-judge Constitutional bench of the Supreme Court, completing its 40 day to day hearing in the case.
On Sunday, the Ayodhya district administration had imposed Section 144 there till December 10, to prevent any likely law and order situation in the wake of the SC judgment, whenever it is delivered.
