Varanasi court reserves order in Gyanvapi case | Varanasi News – Times of India

VARANASI: The Varanasi court has reserved the ruling in the Gyanvapi mosque dispute case for Tuesday after hearing the arguments.
The Hindu side has sought permission for daily worship of Shringar Gauri in the Gyanvapi complex and also permission for the worship of ‘Shivling’ found in ‘wuzukhana’ of the mosque. They have also sought removal of debris in the passage leading to the room under ‘Shivling’.
The Muslim side has opposed sealing of the wuzukhana area and seeks considering Gyanvapi survey and case with reference to the Places of Worship Act, 1991.
Notably, the Varanasi civil court, as well as the Supreme Court had ordered the site to be protected, and alternate arrangements be made for wuzu elsewhere.
The Supreme Court bench headed by the bench of Justices D.Y. Chandrachud, Surya Kant, and P.S. Narasimha on May 20 had ordered the transfer of the Gyanvapi mosque case to the district judge, Varanasi.
