Further Hearing To Be Followed By UP Court, Says Varanasi Court’s Judge

The seniormost judge in Varanasi’s court, which is hearing the Gyanvapi mosque matter on Supreme Court orders, will issue orders tomorrow on when the next hearing will begin and the procedure to be followed. The mosque committee wants the “maintenance” issue heard first, and the court will determine whether to grant that request tomorrow. The Supreme Court had urged the Varanasi court to decide on an urgent basis whether the survey at the Gyanvapi mosque and the petition that led to the survey were’maintainable’ or not in directions issued on Friday.

Between 2 and 3 p.m., a 30-minute hearing was held in the Varanasi District Judge’s court.

“I informed the court that it is a Supreme Court mandate that our plea claiming the case is not maintainable be heard first. I reviewed my application as well as the order from the Supreme Court. The opposing counsel requested additional paperwork and time to file objections to our application, but I insisted that the maintainability be determined first “A lawyer for the Mosque committee, Abhay Nath Yadav, stated.

Hearing a petition contesting the shooting of Varanasi’s Gyanvapi mosque, the Supreme Court announced last week that the matter would be considered by an experienced Uttar Pradesh judge.

“This is a delicate and complicated situation. Instead of a trial judge, we believe the case should be handled by a district judge. Because it’s better if it’s heard by a more experienced ear “According to the court.

Hindu petitioners had leaked details of the mosque filming report just hours after it was handed over to a Varanasi court in a sealed cover on Thursday, prompting the court to order an end to “selective leaks” to the press.

The Supreme Court had also stated that the “need for community fraternity and peace is paramount” for the court.

“On the ground, we require a sense of equilibrium and tranquilly. We require some healing touch. We are on a collective mission to maintain the country’s equilibrium “According to Justice DY Chandrachud.

If the Supreme Court’s temporary order continues to preserve the mosque’s alleged ‘Shivling,’ it may instruct the Varanasi District Magistrate to make other arrangements for Wazu. This came when the Muslim side claimed that the area being shut was interfering with Wazu practise.

Lawyers for Hindu petitioners alleged earlier this week that a ‘Shivling’ was discovered during a videography examination of the Gyanvapi mosque-Shringar Gauri complex. The mosque committee members refuted the report, claiming it was part of the wazookhana reservoir’s water fountain mechanism, which is utilised by devotees to perform ritual ablutions before offering namaz. The ‘wazookhana’ was then ordered sealed by the district court.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court ordered a Varanasi court to safeguard the security of the region where the ‘Shivling’ is said to have been discovered, but not interfering with “religious observances.”
