Uttar Pradesh Gyanvapi case: Order on carbon dating of 'Shivling' delayed, next hearing on October 11


Varanasi: Hearing in Varanasi court on the carbon dating of the alleged Shivling on the Gyanvapi-Maa Shringar Gauri case has been postponed. The hearing will now take place on October 11. The court of District Judge Dr. AK Vishvesh said that the plaintiff 5 women should unanimously tell that by which scientific method the alleged Shivling found in the Gyanvapi Masjid should be investigated.

Even Muslims have also opposed carbon dating. Anjuman Intezamiya Masjid Committee had opposed the process, stating that carbon dating is necessary for only things that absorb carbon, like trees and skeletons of animals, but it is not possible to do the carbon dating of stone or wood as they do not absorb carbon.

Court seeks clarification from Hindu side: Apart from this, the court has sought clarification from the plaintiff Hindu side on two points. First, is the structure of the alleged Shivling part of the property of this trial or not? Second, can the court issue a commission for scientific inquiry? The court has announced that the next hearing in all these cases will be on October 11.

Case was filed last year: The Shringar Gauri-Gyanvapi case was filed by five women, including Rakhi Singh, last year in August, seeking permission for daily worship at Maa Shringar Gauri Sthal in the Gyanvapi complex. The AIMC countered, saying that Gyanvapi mosque was a Waqf property and questioned the maintainability of the plea.
