The Allahabad High Court on Monday reserved its verdict on a petition challenging a Varanasi court’s order for “a comprehensive archaeological physical survey” of the Kashi Vishwanath Temple-Gyanvapi Mosque complex. The petition challenging the Varanasi court order filed by UP Sunni Waqf Board and Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Varanasi was clubbed with three related pleas.

“Detailed arguments in all matters have already been heard by me on various occasions. In this view of the matter, judgment is reserved in all matters. The interim order granted earlier is extended till the delivery of judgment,” said Justice Prakash Padia in his order.

Stating that “the matter pertains to have a connection with our deep history”, a Varanasi court had on April 8 ordered the D-G of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to “get a comprehensive archaeological physical survey” done of the Kashi Vishwanath Temple-Gyanvapi Mosque complex and “find out whether the religious structure standing at present at the disputed site is a superimposition, alteration or addition or there is a structural overlapping of any kind, with or over, any religious structure”.
