Outgoing Chief Justice of India Sharad Arvind Bobde, had wanted Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan to be a mediator in the Ayodhya Ram temple-Babri mosque dispute, reported PTI.
Vikas Singh, the President of the Supreme Court Bar Association made the revelation during the virtual farewell of Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde. The senior advocate further revealed that the actor was happy to mediate but the process did not work out.
Former top court judge FMI Kalifulla, Spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravishankar and senior lawyer Sriram Panchu were the three Supreme Court-appointed mediation panel members.
After several failed rounds of mediation panel, the Supreme Court pronounced judgement in the case in 2019.
The apex court handed over the site in Ayodhya, claimed by both Hindus and Muslims for decades, for the building of a Ram temple and ordered that Muslims be given alternative land for a mosque.
