Gyanvapi Mosque: Muslim Side Objects To ASI Investigation Of Entire Premises

Varanasi: The Muslim side on Monday submitted its written objections before the Varanasi District Court in the matter of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) investigation of the entire Gyanvapi mosque premises.

The court has fixed July 7 for the next hearing in the case.

A petition was filed in a court here last Tuesday seeking an Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) survey of the entire premises of the Gyanvapi complex, and not only the "shivling" as ordered by the Allahabad High Court.

The court had also given time till May 19 to the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee to file objections to the fresh petition filed by the Hindu side.

A copy of the application was also given to the Masjid Committee.

The petition was filed after the Allahabad High Court had ordered the ASI to conduct a scientific survey of the alleged shivling-like structure that was found in the Gyanvapi complex by the ASI last year.

Hindu side had demanded survey of entire complex

Later, the Hindu side came up with a fresh demand of conducting a survey of the entire complex instead of restricting it to the 'shivling' alone.

Supreme Court lawyer Vishnu Shankar Jain, on behalf of six petitioners, has requested a survey of the entire area.
