Allahabad High Court orders the hearing of Kashi Vishwanath and Gyanvapi mosque dispute to commence from 29th March

Prayagraj (UP) – Allahabad High Court ordered a regular hearing of the Kashi Vishwanath Temple and Gyanvapi mosque dispute from 29th March. The Court passed the order while hearing a petition filed by Anjuman Intazamia Mosque in Varanasi. The Court has already stayed the Indian Archaeological Survey of Gyanvapi Mosque premises.

During the hearing, the advocates of the Central Government said that the Shiva Temple has existed here since ancient times, i.e., since the Satyayuga and it still exists. The basement of this temple which is still in dispute is part of the 15th-century temple. However, it is still in the same condition as it was on 15th August 1947, hence, the Places of Worship Act does not apply.
