Scientific Survey In Gyanvapi Mosque Finally Resumes After Period Of Halt

Survey to find out whether the Gyanvapi Mosque was built after razing a Hindu temple has finally resumed by the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) after Allahabad High Court’s decision on Thursday.

However, the mosque committee has opposed the move in Supreme Court. While delivering its decision, the Allahabad Court said that a ‘scientific survey’ was necessary in the interest of justice.

Welcoming Court’s decision, many leaders from BJP said that now after conducting the scientific survey the “truth” about mosque will be open to all.

The mosque committee has challenged the ruling in Supreme Court, a request that will be heard later today. They are also boycotting the survey.

Following challenges from the mosque committee against Allahabad court’s decision the Supreme Court has decided to address the issue today.

According to the Hindu side, it has been claimed that a temple existed before the Gyanvapi mosque in Varanasi, which was demolished in 17th century over the orders given by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.

The Supreme Court had however earlier denied for any survey to be carried out to look into the petitions that said that there was a ‘shivling’ inside the mosque’s ‘wazukhana’.

On July 21, the Varanasi district court had ordered a “scientific survey” for the first time after four Hindu women filed a petition saying a survey was necessary in order to confirm that the mosque was built only after razing a Hindu temple.

The survey was started on July 24 but it was stayed by a Supreme Court within four hours after the mosque committee challenged moved to the top court.
