August 14, 2017: Yoga guru and Patanjali founder Baba Ramdev spoke at the World Peace and Harmony Conclave on Sunday.
On the topic of the Babri dispute, Baba Ramdev sided with Maulana Kalbe Sadiq, a Shia cleric, that peace is the only way the matter needs to be resolved. The Shia cleric also spoke at the event.
Baba Ramdev said to the audience, “This is not a matter of land or Ramjanmabhoomi and Masjid. This is a matter of conscience.” Maulana Kalbe Sadiq also promoted peace as a solution to the Babri dispute. He further said that if the Supreme court verdict is in favor of the temple, then Muslims should give up their claim on the disputed land, mentioned PTI report.
Further, the cleric expressed full faith in the proceedings of the Supreme Court. ANI reports that the Maulana also said, “If Babri Masjid verdict is not in favor of Muslims, then they should peacefully accept it.”
He also said that giving away one thing that is close sends thousands in return, a remark which has received a lot of criticism.
On Friday, the Supreme Court began the cross-hearing in the Babri case. Maulana’s comments imply that Shia Waqf Board accepts having a mosque built at a distance from the disputed land.
