After the Supreme Court asked to make fresh attempts by all concerned parties to find a solution on Ayodhaya issue, next important role remains to be played by UP CM Yogi Adityanath.

When asked whether they will be going ahead with talks on Ram temple, Muslims cleric Haji Mehboob in Lucknow responded, “if the CM of UP invites us for the talks on Ram temple issue, we are happy to be part of the talks”.

The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar had earlier said that such religious issues can be solved through negotiations and offered to mediate to arrive at an amicable settlement.

“These are issues of religion and sentiments. These are issues where all the parties can sit together and arrive at a consensual decision to end the dispute. All of you may sit together and hold a cordial meeting,” the bench also comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud and S K Kaul said.

The observations came after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy mentioned the matter seeking urgent hearing of the issue.
