Gyanvapi Mosque: Muslim Personal Law Board And Asaduddin Owaisi Said This About ASI Survey


Varanasi: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has termed the Supreme Court's order on ASI survey of Gyanvapi Mosque in Varanasi as surprising and unfortunate and said that the country's Muslims are deeply disappointed by it.

On Friday, the Supreme Court refused to stay the order of the Allahabad High Court regarding conducting the survey.

AIMPLB said that the board and the Muslims in the country fear that this order of the Supreme Court may give rise to a new controversy.

Speaking to the media, the spokesperson of the Board, Dr. Kasim Rasool Ilyas said that the decision of the Allahabad High Court is against the law and the principle of secularism.

The Supreme Court in its order said that the ASI will not damage the structure as it protects the monuments.

Owaisi refers to Places of Worship Act


AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has expressed his apprehension by linking the ASI survey of Gyanvapi with the Babri Masjid.

All India Majilis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday said that the observation of the Supreme Court regarding the Places of Worship Act in the landmark Ayodhya judgment must not be dishonored.

The Government of India adopted the Places of Worship Act in 1991. The legislation’s stated goal was to protect the religious character of all places of worship as it stood on August 15, 1947 and forbid any changes that would compromise that character.

Owaisi said he hopes incidents of "neither 23rd December nor 6th December" will be repeated once the reports of the survey conducted by the ASI are made public. The dates mentioned by Owaisi were in reference to the first time when the idol of Ram Lalla is believed to have "appeared" inside the Babri Masjid in 1949 and the demolition of the mosque by Kar Sevaks in 1992.
