The 90-year-old main litigant in the Ayodhya title suits Mohammad Hashim Ansari today claimed he has been invited to attend the meeting of the executive committee of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) in Lucknow on October 16.
"The invitation to attend the meeting in Lucknow has been received and I will attend it," he told reporters here.
"The proposal to sort out the matter through reconciliation and the progress made in this regard will be put before the Board's executive committee," Ansari said.
"We will try to frame a policy along with the board as part of efforts to maintain communal amity and harmony in the country," he said, adding efforts in this direction by leaders of both the communities in Ayodhya would continue.
Expressing satisfaction over the ongoing talks, Ansari said Mahant Gyan Das, chairman of Akhara Parishad, has been asked to find a way to resolve the issue. "It is just the beginning and I will request the board to allow the process to move ahead."
Meanwhile senior member of the Board, Zafaryab Jilani, when contacted, told PTI that no no invitation has been extended to Ansari for the October 16 meeting.
"Ansari is not a member of the executive committee and all invitations for it are extended only by the general secretary of the the Board, Nizamuddin who has also denied having invited him (Ansari)," Jilani said.
