Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], October 31 (ANI): Commenting over the Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's mediation in Ayodhya dispute, Babri Masjid Action Committee (BMAC) Conveyor Zafaryab Jilani on Tuesday said rather than making it a big issue.all sides should sit and decide on this matter peacefully.

Jilani's statement comes a day after Sri Sri Ravi Shankar came up with an initiative to resolve the Ayodhya issue.

Speaking to ANI, Jilani said "Regarding Ayodhya dispute no one has come and spoken on this issue to us. We have no even received any proposal on it yet. Rather than making it a big issue.the country should sit and decide on this matter peacefully. This is a very sensitive topic which needs long and valid discussion. Ravi Shankar mediating in it will make it controversial."

Meanwhile, resonating similar views, Yakub Habeebuddin Tucy, a sixth generation descendant of the last Mughal Emperor said, "Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's mediation in Ayodhya dispute will not solve the issue rather prolong it more. If he really wishes to do something then why so late, he should have taken a decision earlier. My only advise on this issue to resort all opinion and rather sit together and resolve problems".

Earlier in the week, the Art of Living Foundation said that Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has been in touch with several imams and swamis, including Acharya Ram Das of Nirmohi Akhara, to help find an out-of-court settlement to the Ram Temple dispute. (ANI)
