ASI Survey Of Gyanvapi Mosque To Continue; Supreme Court Refuses To Stay

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay tbe ASI survey of Gyanvapi Mosque. The court asked the Muslim side why should they interfere in the order of the High Court and why the Muslim side is objecting to the ASI survey.

The bench said the survey is not going to cause any harm to the Muslim side. Not only this, the Supreme Court has suggested that let the survey be done. Let the report be submitted in a sealed cover. The court said that the survey should be done by non-invasive methods.

Survey was stopped for 4 hours for Namaaz
