Spiritual guru and founder of Art of Living foundation Sri Sri Ravishankar and senior advocate Sriram Panchu, a renowned mediator, will be the other two members of the panel of mediators.
The mediation process will commence within a week and the panel will submit the progress report within four weeks, the top court said.

“The Supreme Court, in the Sabarimala case, without taking into consideration all relevant entities and customs, delivered a judgment even without consideration of the different opinion of the lone women member of the bench. It wasn’t binding on state govt to implement decision in any stipulated time frame, but without understanding nuances of Judgment, state govt showed undue haste and political ill-will towards Hindu society by facilitating forcible entry of non-Hindu and non-devotee women in the Temple,” the RSS statement said.
Around 1,400 members of the Pratinidhi Sabha including RSS head, Mohan Bhagwat and Sarkaryavaha Bhaiyaji Joshi are taking part in the meeting.
