SC to hear the plea for the worship of shivling claimed to be found in Gyanvapi Mosque premises, in the presence of Anjuman Intezemia Masjid Committee.
Mumbai: On Monday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the plea for the worship of shivling claimed to be found on the premises of Gyanvapi Mosque on July 21.
Chief Justice N V Ramana and Judges Krishna Murari and Hima Kohli took note of the entries of attorney Vishnu Shankar Jain that the supplication is recorded for hearing on July 21 at the side of the pending request of the ‘Anjuman Intezemia Masjid Committee’ which oversees the undertakings of the Gyanvapi mosque.
“This is a petition to allow ‘darshan and pooja’ of the ‘Shivling’ which has been found in the complex and also to direct the ASI to do the carbon dating of ‘Shivling’. The petition filed by Masjid Committee challenging the commission survey is coming up on July 21. Please list it along with that,” Jain said.
The supreme court coordinated the District Magistrate of Varanasi to guarantee the security of the zone interior the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex where the ‘Shivling’ was said to be found within the study and permitted Muslims to offer ‘Namaz’ and perform “religious observances”. Later, the bench exchanged the respectful suit recorded by Hindu lovers on Gyanvapi mosque from civil judge (senior division) to area judge, Varanasi saying looking at the “complexities” and “sensitivity” of the issue, it is superior in the event that a senior legal officer has an experience of over 25-30 years to handle this case.
The bench had also said that its earlier interim order of May 17 directing protection of the area where ‘Shivling’ is said to be found and allowing Muslims to offer ‘Namaz’ in mosque premises shall remain in operation till the maintainability of the suit is decided by the district judge and thereafter for eight weeks to allow the aggrieved parties approach the higher court.The court of the district judge of Varanasi is continuing with the hearing in the case.
