The Gyanvapi Mosque – Erstwhile temple of Kashi Vishwanath . It was destroyed by Aurangzeb to build the mosque

Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh): A Varanasi district court on Monday ruled in favour of the Hindu side and stated that their plea in the Gyanvapi mosque-Shringar Gauri mandir case is maintainable. Advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain, representing the Hindu side in the Gyanvapi mosque case, told the media after the order was read out by District Judge Varanasi AK Vishvesh that the court dismissed the petition of the Muslim side and stated that the Hindu side’s suit is maintainable.

The court will now hear the matter next on September 22.

Reacting to the court order, Sohan Lal Arya, a petitioner in the case, expressed happiness and described the verdict as a foundation of the Gyanvapi temple.

“It’s a win for the Hindu community. The next hearing is on September 22. It’s a foundation stone for the Gyanvapi temple. Appeal to people to maintain peace,” Arya told the media outside the Varanasi district court.

It may be noted that five women had moved the court seeking permission to daily worship Hindu deities whose idols are said to have been found on an outer wall of the Gyanvapi mosque complex. The Muslim petitioner in the case, the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee had stated that the Hindu side’s plea was not maintainable and that Gyanvapi mosque is a Waqf property.

However, Madan Mohan Yadav, a lawyer of the Hindu side, had contended that the Gyanvapi mosque was built on the ruins of the temple which was demolished.

The Varanasi district court is hearing the matter on the orders of the Supreme Court.

A lower court had earlier ordered a videographic survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex and the survey was completed on May 16. Further, the report was submitted in the court on May 19 and the Hindu side had claimed that during the survey, a Shivling was found inside the Gyanvapi mosque-Shringar Gauri complex. However, the Muslim side had contested the claims.
