Three litigants in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute case on Monday ruled out the possibility of an out-of-court settlement in the matter.
Litigants Haji Mahboob, Iqbal Ansari and Mohammad Umar passed a resolution at a local meeting clearing stating that the mosque would not be shifted.
After the meeting, a signed press statement was also issued by the three.
Art of Living founder and spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who has been trying to mediate in the case, has been pushing for an out-of-court settlement. A six-member delegation of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) from Lucknow had met Ravi Shankar in Bengaluru on February 9 for discussions on an amicable solution.
The spiritual guru is expected to meet all litigants again in Ayodhya on March 12.
