Gyanvapi mosque case: Order reserved for 4 pm on the maintainability of the suit
Varanasi, May 30: A district court on Monday reserved its order for 4pm on the maintainability of the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex case. The Hindu side/Plaintiffs have urged the court to grant an ad interim relief to allow the Hindu devotees to enter Gyanvapi Mosque and pray inside the mosque.
Advocate Anupam Dwivedi, one of the lawyers representing the petitioners, says interim prayer made to enter Gyanvapi Mosque and pray.
The caretakers of the Gyanvapi mosque in Varanasi on Saturday urged the district court not to release survey videos and pictures in the public domain, reported Live Law.
After the survey ended in May, the lawyers of the Hindu plaintiffs claimed to have found a shivling - an idol representing the Hindu deity Shiva - in the wazu khana, or ablution tank, in the mosque.
The court had on May 24 fixed May 26 for hearing on the maintainability of the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex case.
Singh on Tuesday had said the court also gave a week's time to both Hindu and Muslim sides to file objections to the report of a court-mandated videography survey of the Gyanvapi mosque premises.
On May 20, the Supreme Court had transferred the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex case from a civil judge (senior division) to a district judge, saying looking at the "complexities" and "sensitivity" of the issue, it is better if a senior judicial officer having an experience of over 25-30 years handles this case.
