The three-member mediation panel on Ayodhya has moved a memorandum seeking directions on a request for resumption for negotiations by the opposing parties themselves in the Ram Janambhoomi title suite.

The Sunni Waqf Board and Nirmohi Akhara have reportedly expressed their willingness to continue with talks to amicably resolve the Ram Janambhoomi title dispute between the Hindu and Muslim sides. The memorandum apparently seeks permission to continue with the talks on the matter which were abruptly stopped on July 29.
If the apex court gives the green light, then it will be the second attempt at mediation between the parties. Earlier in August, the Supreme Court had declared that the mediation process had failed. The mediation panel was chaired by former Supreme Court judge Justice FMI Kalifulla, along with spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and senior Advocate Sriram Panchu.
Day to Day hearings on the dispute is currently ongoing in the Supreme Court. Friday marked the 23rd day of the day to day proceedings in the top court. It remains to be seen whether the Court will allow negotiations to resume given the fact that the first round of mediation had failed to reach any concrete solution.
It is, however, notable here that the panel has specified to the court that neither party is seeking the court to stop the ongoing proceedings.
