Gyanvapi: Plea seeking right to worship inside Gyanvapi complex maintainable: Allahabad high court

NEW DELHI: Allahabad high court on Wednesday dismissed the Muslim side’s plea challenging maintainability of five Hindu women worshippers’ suit filed in Varanasi court seeking the right to worship inside Gyanvapi mosque.
Speaking after the court’s ruling, lawyer Subhash Nandan Chaturvedi said that it is a big win for the Hindu side.
“We welcome the decision of the court to dismiss Order 7 Rule CPC plea filed by Anjuman Intazamia Mosque Committee which had also challenged the maintainability of the suit of five Hindu women worshippers seeking the right to worship inside the mosque” he added.
Meanwhile, Advocate Mohammad Tauheed Khan appearing on behalf of the mosque committee said it was not a big win for the Hindu side.
“The court gave a verdict only on the Order 7 Rule CPC plea filed by Anjuman Intazamia Mosque Committee. We can file a review petition and also approach the Supreme Court. The next course of action will be decided upon after reading the order,” he added.
The mosque committee had also sought the restoration of a temple at the site where the mosque exists.
“It is a historic verdict. The court clearly has said that Anjuman Intezamia Mosque Committee‘s petition is not maintainable and dismissed it,” said Vishnu Shankar Jain, representing the Hindu side in the case said after the court ruling.
The court heard a total of 7 cases related to the Gyanvapi dispute on Wednesday.
On April 8, 2021, hearing a suit seeking the restoration of the temple at the Gyanvapi mosque site, the Varanasi court had directed the Archaeological Survey of India(ASI)a to conduct a comprehensive survey of the mosque complex.
