Gyanvapi Mosque

A court in Varanasi on Thursday disposed of a petition filed under Order 7 Rule 11 CPC against a title suit praying to hand over the possession of the Gyanvapi Mosque premises to Lord Vishweshwar Virajman (Swayambhu) and others.

The plea, filed by the committee managing the Gyanvapi Mosque called the Anjuman Masjid Committee, had challenged the maintainability of title suit filed by the Lord Vishweshwar Virajman (Swayambhu) through his next-friend and international general secretary of Vishwa Vedic Sanatan Sangh, Kiran Singh. The court of Civil Judge Senior Division Fast Track Court Mahendra Kumar Pandey fixed December 2 as the next date of hearing in the case.

Singh had sought permission to bar the entry of Muslims, hand over the premises to Hindus and worship the Shivling and perform Raag Bhog. Now the court has considered this matter as hearable.The court had heard the arguments of both the parties on October 15 and reserved its order on October 27. 

The temple town was turned into a fortress on Thursday, with heavy security arrangements around the court premises. The Vishwa Vedic Sanatan Sangh has welcomed the order.Everything belongs to the temple except the dome of Gyanvapi: Kiran SinghThe Counsels representing plaintiff Kiran Singh had argued that whether the suit was maintainable or not, the objection raised by the Anjuman Committee was a matter of evidence and trial. They said except the dome of Gyanvapi, everything belongs to the temple. When the trial will take place, only then will it be known whether it was a mosque or a temple.

Referring to the decision of Deen Mohammad, they said that there was no Hindu party in the case and therefore, it does not apply to the Hindu side. The Advocates for the Hindu side further contended that the Places of Worship (special provisions) Act, 1991 was not applicable in this case, as the structure did not show as to whether it was a temple or a mosque. The civil court has the right to conduct its trial, they added.

They said it was a historical fact that Aurangzeb ordered the demolition of the temple and construction of a mosque. The Waqf Act did not apply to the Hindu side. As such, this suit was maintainable and the application filed by the Anjuman on the point of maintainability was liable to be dismissed.

The court had recently issued notice to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and sought the opinion of the Director General on whether it was possible to safely determine the age of the ‘Shiva Linga’, which was allegedly discovered inside the Gyanvapi Mosque complex.

The High Court further ordered the Varanasi Court to set a date in the first week of December for the main lawsuit in the dispute, in which five Hindu women (plaintiffs) were requesting the right to worship Shringar Guari throughout the year inside the grounds of the Gyanvapi Mosque.

On the other hand, the Anjuman Masjid committee has termed the object discovered inside the mosque’s grounds as a “Fauwara” or fountain.

Salman Khan is currently under a Y+ category security cover provided by the Mumbai Police; a step taken by the Maharashtra government after the superstar had received a similar death threat from Lawrence Bishnoi gang earlier.

A death threat letter was sent to Salman and his father Salim Khan last year, which was discovered by the Khans’ security team near the Bandra Bandstand promenade outside the actor’s Mumbai home where Salim goes for his routine morning run.

In October last year, the Delhi Police revealed that in the purported plan to assassinate Salman Khan, the member of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang tried to befriend the staff of the actor’s farmhouse in Mumbai in a bid to ascertain the details about the timings of his entry and exit.

It further said if Khan wants to close the matter, he should talk face-to-face with Goldy bhai (Goldy Brar), adding there is still time but “agli bar, jhatka dekhne ko milega (next time you’ll have to face the music).”

Lawrence Bishnoi warned the actor that he would crush his ego sooner or later if he doesn’t apologize.

Lawrence Bishnoi is currently behind bars after was he arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on November 23 last year for allegedly hatching a conspiracy to recruit youth for carrying out terror attacks in Delhi and other parts of the country.

The notorious gangster is also suspected to be behind last year’s brutal gangster-style murder of popular Punjabi singer-rapper Sidhu Moosewala. Bishnoi is the prime suspect in Moosewala’s killing.

In a recent controversy, a Punjab-based news channel allegedly aired a live interview of Bishnoi from inside the Bathinda jail, however, the Punjab Prisons administration denied reports that the program was shot inside any prison in the AAP-ruled state.
