Will a court-mandated mediation on Ayodhya solve the issue?
The Supreme Court has opted for a time-bound mediation process in a bid to resolve the Ayodhya dispute. Then, the reference was made to determine whether there was a Hindu religious structure under the mosque prior to the mosque being built. Would it have been better if the mediation process was given more time, or if it was open-ended so that there could be a more viable process? Itâs going to be a tricky process because whoever is left out of the mediation process can move out to the streets with their grievance, and whip up public fury. Does this not apply to the mediation process also?
