Five Hindu ladies have petitioned the Gyanvapi Mosque for year-round access to the mosque's shrine.
A day before the case’s next hearing in court, the court-ordered three-day videography survey of the Gyanvapi Masjid complex in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, came to an end.
A shiva linga has been discovered in the pond inside the mosque complex, according to the lawyer representing the Hindu women, which is guaranteed to raise feathers. “The pond was utilised for ablution (wuzu) purifying rituals,” lawyer Subhash Nandan Chaturvedi claimed, adding that the pond had been drained and that a shiva linga had been discovered.
The three-day videography survey of the Gyanvapi Masjid complex in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, was completed a day before the case’s next hearing in court.
The lawyer for the Hindu women claims that a shiva linga was discovered in the pond inside the mosque complex, which is sure to raise eyebrows. “The pond was utilised for ablution (wuzu) purifying rituals,” attorney Subhash Nandan Chaturvedi said, adding that the pond had been drained and a shiva linga had been discovered.
Following a petition from the petitioners, a Varanasi court has ordered the pond to be sealed immediately. The Varanasi District Magistrate has been ordered to ensure that no one is allowed to access the area.
No details of the survey of the Gyanvapi mosque were revealed by any member of the commission, according to the Varanasi DM. “The information concerning the survey is kept by the court. Yesterday, one member was suspended from the commission for a few minutes before being reinstated “He claimed that one person had expressed an opinion that was their own viewpoint.
The final day of filming began this morning amid increased security and limitations in the vicinity of the compound.
“Today, the survey commission completed its task. It has meticulously filmed every location. Three domes, underground basements, and a pond have all been captured on camera. The advocate commissioner will provide his report to the court tomorrow, which the three commission members will prepare today. We would approach the court for further time if the report is not completed on time “According to sources, the entire process was calm, according to government counsel Mahendra Prasad Pandey.
