Gyanvapi Masjid controversy: Allahabad HC adjourns hearing till May 20 due to paucity of time

In the midst of a significant development, the top court will hear the matter. A Varanasi court on Monday directed the district administration there to seal the survey site inside the premises where the survey team has allegedly found the ‘Shivling’.

The Allahabad High Court on Monday adjourned the hearing in Varanasi’s Kashi-Viswanath Mandir-Gyanvapi Masjid case till May 20 due to paucity of time. The High Court’s decision comes even as the Supreme Court will hear on Tuesday the petition of the Gyanvapi Masjid management against the survey of the premises.

In the midst of a significant development, the top court will hear the matter. A Varanasi court on Monday directed the district administration there to seal the survey site inside the premises where the survey team has allegedly found the ‘Shivling’.

The Hindu side claimed that the “Shivling” was found close to the “Vazukhana” – a small reservoir used by Muslim devotees to perform rituals before offering prayers. The claimed discovery on the last day of the survey has restarted the temple-mosque debate on the Gyanvapi Masjid-Shringar Gauri complex located near the iconic Kashi Vishwanath temple.

As per the updated list of functioning of the apex court on Tuesday, a bench of Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha will hear the petition of the Management Committee Anjuman Intejamiya Masjid, which manages the affairs of Gyanvapi Masjid in Varanasi.

Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya expressed satisfaction over the development, while AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi said Muslims are not ready to lose “another mosque” after the Babri Masjid.

A local court in Varanasi had on May 12 dismissed a plea to replace the advocate commissioner appointed to conduct a videography survey of the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex and ordered completion of the work by May 17.

The district court also appointed two more lawyers, who would assist the Advocates Commissioner in surveying the mosque located close to the Kashi Vishwanath temple.

The May 12 order of a local court came on a plea by a group of women seeking permission for daily worship of Hindu deities, whose idols are located on the outer wall of the mosque.
