The Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) today proposed that Mohammad Hashim Ansari, one of the main litigants in the Ayodhya title suit case, be given an award like Padma Vibhushan for initiating efforts to resolve the vexed issue through an out of court settlement.
"The spontaneous gesture and continuing efforts of Janaab Mohammad Hashim Ansari deserve prompt recognition," APCC General Secretary R Ananda Bhaskar said in a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
"Hence, I, on behalf of humble thinking class of my generation and younger generations, earnestly propose and request your esteemed authority to consider the name of Mohammad Hashim Ansari for the Gandhi Peace Prize, Padma Vibhushan and also to recommend his name for international peace and harmony awards such as Raman Magsaysay and Nobel peace prize," he said in the letter.
Ananda Bhaskar has sent separate letters on the matter to UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Vice President Hamid Ansari, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi.
Mohammad Hashim Ansari, one of the main litigants in the title suits, met Mahant Gyan Das of Hanumanghari who is also the President of Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad to explore the possibility of an amicable solution on October 3.
During an hour-long closed door meeting between Gyan Das and Ansari, the discussions revolved around ways to chalk out an agreement on the 60-year-old temple-mosque dispute.
