Gyanwapi hearing: Varanasi court in the Gyanwapi mosque case has adjourned the hearing of the petition seeking dismissal of the Hindu case till May 30. Following the hearing of the Gyanwapi Mosque case today, the Varanasi District Court on Thursday adjourned the hearing of the Anjuman-e-Ittihadiya Masjid Committee, which manages the Gyanwapi Mosque in Varanasi, till May 30. Only petitioners, lawyers and defendants were allowed inside the court during the hearing. The mosque committee argued that the case by the Hindu side was intolerable and should be dismissed.

The committee was seeking cancellation of the case of Hindu petitioners for the unrestricted right to worship at the Shringar Gori site inside the Kashi Vishwanath-Gyanwapi complex, alleging that a Shivling was found in the premises. Only petitioners, lawyers and defendants were allowed inside the court during the hearing. The hearing, which began at 2 pm, lasted for about two hours.

The mosque committee argued that the case by the Hindu side was intolerable and should be dismissed under Order 7 Rule 11 of the Code of Civil Procedure (CPC). It says rumors of ‘shawling’ are being spread to provoke public sentiment. Abhay Nath Yadav, one of the lawyers of the Muslim side, presented several arguments for dismissing the case. Both sides obtained the videography report of the survey commission appointed by the court.

Police chased two unauthorized persons out of the courtroom. A lawyer was allegedly removed from the court premises on the orders of a district judge. The district court was hearing the case following the directions of the Supreme Court, which said that the case should be heard by a more sensible and experienced judge. The Supreme Court directed that the petition of the Muslim Committee against the sustainability of the case be decided on priority basis.

During its last hearing on Tuesday, the district court had said that it would hear the petition of the Muslim party and decide whether the suit of the Hindu party could be considered, which led to the survey of the mosque. The hearing of the Hindu side’s petition regarding the controversial survey of the premises will be held later.

During the survey, Hindu petitioners claimed that a “shawling” was found in the premises, from which the Varanasi Civil Court ordered protection. Details of the survey report submitted to the court last week said that Hindu relics and carvings were also found inside the premises. Lawyers appearing in the Varanasi court on Tuesday said the district judge verbally directed that the survey report be shared with both parties so that they could record their observations within seven days.

The Supreme Court clarified its May 17 order protecting the part of the mosque complex where an apparent “shawling” was found. He directed that Muslims should have the right to offer prayers in the mosque without any hindrance. The apex court asked the Varanasi district magistrate to make arrangements for bathing for Muslims, but did not consider the committee’s request to allow the use of a pool or tap near the safe haven.

The Supreme Court adjourned the case till the third week of July. He said his May 17 ruling would remain in force until the district judge decides on the merits of the case, and for a further eight weeks so that the affected parties can challenge it on appeal. The apex court said that the place of worship could not be barred by the 1991 Act on the religious significance of a place.
