Gyanvapi Mosque Case Highlights: The Varanasi district court, hearing the civil suit on the Gyanvapi mosque-Kashi Viswanath temple complex dispute, will hear on May 26 the Order 7 Rule 11 application by the Muslim side seeking to reject the civil suit of the Hindu side seeking claim on Gyanvapi mosque.
Meanwhile, the judge has sought objections on the advocate Commissioner survey report of Gyanvapi mosque from both the Hindu and Muslim side. The court was to deliver the order Tuesday on whether to invite objections on the survey report or conduct hearing on Order 7 Rule 11 application of the Masjid committee first. While the Masjid committee has argued that the suit is barred under the Places of Worship Act, the Hindu petitioners have said that the survey report should be considered.
The Varanasi court started hearing the case on Monday after the Supreme Court on Friday ordered the transfer of the pending proceedings to the District Judge, Varanasi, for “trial and all interlocutory and ancillary proceedings”.
