Gyanvapi Masjid Case: Varanasi court to deliver verdict on plea seeking worship rights of ‘Shivling’ found on mosque premise

Gyanvapi Masjid Case was heard in Varanasi’s Civil Fast Track Court. Following the hearing on November 14, Civil Judge Senior Division Mahendra Kumar Pandey postponed the decision for two days that is on November 17, 2022. Now, in this case, the court will decide today whether or not the case is fit for hearing. Kiran Singh “Bisen,” the wife of Vishwa Vedic Sanatan Sangh chief Jitendra Singh Bisen, had petitioned the court. Both sides’ arguments have been concluded. The decision was postponed for two days by Civil Judge Mahendra Kumar Pandey, who cited the backlog of cases

On Monday, around 2 p.m., the International General Secretary of Vishwa Vedic Sanatan Sangh, Kiran Singh, filed an application in court. In this regard, a demand was made in the court of Civil Judge Fast Track Court Senior Division Mahendra Kumar Pandey to hand over the Gyanvapi campus to Hindus, describing it as a temple and inviting them to worship the Shivling found there. Previously, there was a demand to reject it while raising objections from the Muslim side. Although, in the past, both sides have made sufficient arguments in court during the hearing of this case. In such a case, the court is now expected to rule on the case’s maintainability (whether the case is hearable or not). As mentioned in an article by Dainik Jagran.
