Gyanvapi Mosque: Varanasi Court To Deliver Verdict Today On Permission To Worship ‘Shivling’

Varanasi: A fast-track court here will pronounce its verdict today on the petition seeking permission to offer worship to the shivling claimed to have been found in the Gyanvapi mosque complex here.

 The court had deferred the matter for November 14 during the last hearing on November 8. 

 The demands of the Hindu side on which the court will pronounce its verdict include permission for the immediate beginning of prayer of Swayambhu Jyotirlinga Bhagwan Vishweshwar, the handing over of the entire Gyanvapi complex to the Hindus, and banning the entry of Muslims inside the premises of the Gyanvapi complex. 

 The Muslim side is permitted to offer prayers in the premises till the matter is pending in court. 

SC had extended protection to the area:  The Supreme Court on November 11 extended its earlier order to protect the area where the 'Shivling' was allegedly discovered at the Gyanvapi Mosque complex during the court survey. 

 The Hindu side had demanded carbon dating of the structure they claimed to be a Shivling found inside the Gyanvapi Mosque's wazukhana.
