The Ayodhya land dispute has always remained a hot topic in India and also invited many arguments by political leaders and parties. But did you know that outgoing Chief Justice of India S A Bobde wanted Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan to be a part of the mediation process to resolve the Ayodhya land dispute? We know this is an interesting and yet shocking piece of information. But yes, it is true. This information was revealed to the public for the first time by the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President and Senior Advocate Vikas Singh.

It was during his address on the occasion of the farewell ceremony for the CJI, when he said, “Justice Bobde, who was a member of the Ayodhya bench, believed that Ayodhya dispute should be resolved through mediation. He had asked me since I knew the family of Shah Rukh Khan very well, whether the actor will be interested in participating in the mediation. And I spoke to the actor. He was more than willing to be a part of the mediation process because he also felt the best way Hindus and Muslims can live together peacefully in this country is when there is complete religious harmony."

It is to be noted here that the mediation panel was set up by a five-judge Constitution bench headed by the then CJI Ranjan Gogoi in March 2019 to resolve the land dispute.
