Permission to visit and worship Goddess Shringar Gauri Mata in Kashi Vishwanath Temple premises throughout the year

  • A commendable decision of the Government of Uttar Pradesh !
  • Due to the controversy, worship was allowed only once a year in the temple, which is adjacent to the alleged mosque !
Editorial comment

Islamic invaders demolished hundreds of Hindu temples and built mosques there. Hindus are fighting in a lawful manner to get it back. Hindus expect that the Government should now intervene and help Hindus get back their religious places !

Varanasi (UP) – The Kashi Vishwanath temple was demolished by the barbarian dictator Aurangzeb, who then had built a Gyanvapi mosque on its premises. A case is pending in the Court for the return of this land to Hindus. Owing to this controversy, Hindus were allowed to worship the idol of Goddess Shringar Gauri Mata, to the west of the so-called mosque, only once a year. In this regard, advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain filed a petition in Varanasi Court seeking permission to perform pooja throughout the year. The Court issued notice to the Uttar Pradesh Government in this matter, but even before that, the Uttar Pradesh Government has permitted worship and visit of the Goddess throughout the year. Kashi Vishwanath Temple was built next to Gyanvapi Mosque by Maharani Ahilyabai Holkar.

Victory of Hindus who have been fighting for this for years – Advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain

Advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain said, ‘This Pooja was stopped after 1990 by the then Government. At that time, worship was allowed only on the day of Shukla Chaturthi in Chaitra Navratri. We had filed a petition in the Varanasi Civil Court seeking permission throughout the year, saying that Hindus have a fundamental right to worship the Goddess. The Court issued notice to the Government in this case. Since then, the Government has also allowed worship and darshan throughout the year. This is the victory of Hindus who have been fighting for this for years’.

Gyanvapi Mosque is not in accordance with the tenets of Islam !

Advocate Jain further said, ‘This mosque is not in accordance with the tenets of Islam because nowhere in India there is an Idol of a Hindu Deity on the west of a mosque. Idol worship is prohibited in Islam. It is clear from this that Aurangzeb demolished the Kashi Vishwanath temple and built this mosque there’.
