In the Gyanvapi-Sringar Gauri case of Varanasi, the survey work has started from Saturday, ie today at 8 am.
Gyanvapi Masjid Verdict: After the verdict of the Varanasi Court in the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri case of Varanasi, the survey work has started from 8 am today, May 14. After the decision of the court, there was a long meeting between the Advocate Commissioner and the Varanasi District Magistrate, in which it was decided to conduct the survey on Saturday.
Two more lawyers will be with the court commissioner
During the hearing on May 12, the court has also categorically refused to change the court commissioner Ajay Mishra. The Muslim side has also suffered a major setback on the petition for the replacement of the court commissioner. In the latest decision, two more lawyers have been appointed along with the court commissioner. The report of the survey will be presented in the court before May 17 in the matter.
Demand for change of court commissioner rejected
Explain that on the basis of 56 (c), the Muslim parties had to change the court commissioner. This demand has been rejected by the civil judge. The survey inside the mosque was opposed by the Muslim side on the basis of 61 (c). The court has said in its order that if any obstacle is being created in the matter of survey of the mosque, then the administration should take punitive action on it.
Why is the disputed place called Gyanvapi?
According to the Hindu side, there is a 10 feet deep well between the mosque and Vishwanath temple, which is called Gyanvapi. It is also mentioned in Skanda Purana. It is believed that Lord Shiva himself made this well for Lingabhishek with his trident. It was here that Shiva gave knowledge to his wife Parvati, hence the name of this place was Gyanvapi or the well of knowledge. Many stories and legends about this are prevalent in the area. The dispute of Kashi Vishwanath Temple and Gyanvapi Masjid is similar to the dispute of Ayodhya Babri Masjid.
Gyanvapi Mosque built by demolishing the temple - Hindu side
Here too both the temple and mosque have been built. The Hindu side says that in 1669, the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb built the Gyanvapi Mosque by demolishing the Kashi Vishwanath temple here. The Muslim side says that there was no temple here and the mosque was built from the beginning. As it happens about many issues and facts in history, here too there is a difference of opinion among historians. Some historians say that in the 14th century, the Sharqi Sultan of Jaunpur had demolished the temple and built the Gyanvapi mosque, while some believe that Akbar built the Vishwanath temple and the Gyanvapi mosque in 1585 under the new religion Din-i-Ilahi.
