Varanasi court allows ASI survey of Gyanvapi mosque except spot sealed earlier
On Friday, the Varanasi Court allowed the survey of the Gyanvapi, located next to the Kashi Vishwanath temple. The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) will carry out the scientific survey of the complex, barring the Shivling.
The Hindu side in the case had filed a petition seeking the court’s direction to the ASI to survey the entire Gyanvapi mosque complex.
After the court agreed to hear the petition in May, it asked the Gyanvapi mosque committee to file its reply to the submissions made by the Hindu side.
The decision comes after the court heard both sides.
The Hindu side is represented by lawyer Vishnu Shankar Jain. In court, Jain argued that the Kashi Vishwanath temple-Gyanvapi dispute can be resolved only by an archaeological investigation of the entire mosque complex.
He said the situation can become clear after examining the three domes of the Gyanvapi complex, the western wall of the complex, and the entire complex in a modern way.
