Upendra Bharti | HENB | Varanasi | May 8, 2022:: The successors of Islamic invaders are trying hard to keep their illegal possession on Gyanvapi Mosque which was built by destroying the Original Kashi Vishwanath Temple by fanatic Mughal ruler Aurangzeb in 1669.
The survey and videography of the Gyanvapi premises which began on Friday amid tight security, was stalled due to Islamic protest on Saturday as the advocate commissioner and a team of lawyers were not allowed to enter and protests continued the second day.
The lawyer for respondent Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee (AIMC), meanwhile, requested a local court to change the advocate commissioner for the survey and videography. The court of civil judge (senior division) Ravi Kumar Diwakar directed the plaintiffs and advocate commissioner to present their side in this regard in court and fixed May 9 as the next hearing date. The Anjuman committee claimed the current advocate commissioner is biased and working under pressure from the plaintiffs.
The Muslims started protesting after two timeworn traces of ‘swastika’ symbols were dectected and videographed near the Gyanvapi Masjid in the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex in Varanasi during the survey.
The survey is being done on the Varanasi district court’s order following a plea by Delhi-based women Rakhi Singh, Laxmi Devi, Sita Sahu and others seeking permission to have daily darshan, pooja (worship) and perform all the rituals of Maa Shringar Gauri, Lord Ganesh, Lord Hanuman and other “visible and invisible deities within old temple complex” situated at settlement plot no. 9130 in the area of Dashwamedh ward and police station.
As the survey of the Gyanvapi mosque in Varanasi by the local court-appointed advocate commissioner Ajai Kumar and his team could not conducted on Saturday as lawyers of the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee, which manages the mosque, opposed the exercise in court an created Muslim’s commotion in large scale; the Anjuman committee on Saturday filed a petition in the court of civil judge Ravi Kumar Diwakar, urging him to replace Kumar.
After hearing the matter, the court directed the plaintiffs and the advocate commissioner to present their arguments on May 9. “We filed a petition in the court of the civil judge, urging the court to remove or replace advocate commissioner Ajai Kumar with a senior lawyer because (on the first day) he conducted the proceeding of the survey as per the wishes of the advocates of the petitioners,” said Abhay Nath Yadav, a lawyer for the mosque committee.
Abhay Nath Yadav, lawyer for the mosque, said the survey started around 4 p.m. on Friday and videography of stone slabs was done where they claimed there was an image of Shringar Gauri. Around 5.30 p.m., the court commissioner and the team went to the main gate and said they would conduct videography even inside the mosque, said Mr. Yadav. “We objected saying that there were no clear orders by the court for doing so,” the lawyer said.
The lawyer alleged that the court commissioner was acting in a partial manner and handed an application to him expressing the concern. Mr. Yadav said that on Saturday he would file an application in court demanding that the advocate commissioner be changed,
Mr. Yadav said that as per local tradition, pooja of Shirngar Gauri was done once a year during Nauratra (Chaturthi).
The suit was only for rights to daily puja of deities inside the premises and not for ownership, said the lawyer.
Shivam Gaur, a lawyer for the Hindu plaintiffs, said the survey started from the western side. “We found some evidence that are commensurate with our case. Things were found as per the map prepared by us,” he said.
Mr. Gaur said they could not enter the mosque due to objections by the masjid committee.
All the drawings, structure, architecture and artifacts within the plot no 9130 come under the survey, said Mr. Gaur, a point contested by the Muslim side.
Sayid Yasin, joint secretary of the Anjuma Intejamia Masajid, said the videography was being done by the court commissioner outside the mosque but in proximity to it. “We had objected to them entering the mosque [for the inspection],” he said.
Actually, when the advocate commissioner and lawyers reached Gyanvapi campu s in the afternoon for the survey of Shringar Gauri in the complex but a crowd of namazis gathered outside the premises. Police dispersed the crowd after ‘Allah ho Akbar’ sloganeering started by Muslims.
After some time, the plaintiffs came out of the premises and said people from the Muslim community did not allow them to go inside.
The one of the petitioners’ advocates, Vishnu Shankar Jain said, “The court had given a clear order, but it was not followed. People from the Muslim community came and stood at the door. Thus the survey has been stopped. We will put our stand before the court on May 9,” he said.
