The official handle of the Art of Living foundation has denied reports of a ‘deal’ by CNN Network 18 on the Ayodhya temple with former AIMPLB ‘s former member Salman Nadwi.
News 18 had reported, that ‘deal’ involved a Fatwa to be organised by any of top five Islamic centres of scholarship endorsing a ‘formula’. The fatwa will clarify that giving mosque land for a temple will not violate Islamic religion in order to build public opinion in favour of the Ram temple claimed the channel.
However, the Supreme court which is examining the matter has said that it will treat this case as a land dispute alone and ignore all other considerations.

CNN Network 18’s reports were denied AOL foundation’s twitter handle. It called the reports ‘ a figment of the news channel’s imagination.’ Though it called the reports baseless and ridiculous, it did not disclose actual details of the talks.
.@CNNnews18 is running a story on Gurudev @SriSri‘s “new formula” for #Ayodhya. He has given no such formula. It’s a figment of the news channel’s imagination. The story is baseless and ridiculous. @Swamy39
