The petition filed by these women through Advocate H.H Hari Shankar Jain and Advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain states that the devotees have the right to worship the Deities, visible or invisible, inside the complex of Old Kashi Vishwanath Temple. The original Kashi Vishwanath temple complex was destroyed by Aurangzeb during his regime. It has been mentioned that the temple complex was converted into a mosque during Mughal rule in the region.
Jitendra Singh, President of Vishwa Vaidik Sanatan Sangh said, there will be campaigns to remove such stigma on Sanatan Dharma and petitions will be filed accordingly. A petition will be filed for the release of the Taj Mahal in Agra.
