Asserting that the Muslim front in the Ram Mandir case will have to choose a different spot to build a mosque, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday said if a compromise is not reached on this matter then the saffron party will pass a legislation in this regard when they will have a majority in the Rajya Sabha.
“So we are not opposing the idea of building a Masjid but not on the same spot, as it was the same spot where Ram was born. Is there a spot that they can accept, that’s the compromise? This can work. But if they want to argue in the court that is also fine. We otherwise have other options, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) by next year will have majority in Rajya Sabha and then we can pass a legislation. And then the Muslim community will not have any Masjid to show for it,” he added.
The court asked parties concerned to sit together to arrive at a consensus and asked Swamy to consult the parties and inform it about the decision on March 31.
The court also suggested if required, a principal mediator can be chosen by the court for settling the issue. Chief Justice J.S. Khehar said if the parties want him to mediate then he is ready for the task.
