The Gyanvapi issue
Varanasi (UP) – If the atmosphere is being quietened by hiding the truth, then that is not acceptable to us. In fact, they should be ashamed, of why the truth was kept hidden for so many years. Those who are threatening to vitiate the atmosphere should surrender. If they are saying that it is a fountain and not a Shivalinga that is found in the place of doing ‘vazu’ (washing hands and feet before namaz), they should demonstrate the working fountain. What was the technology 350 years ago that was used to make the fountain work ? asked the Advocate in the Gyanvapi case H.H. (Adv.) Hari Shankar Jain to the media. H.H. Jain had been admitted to the hospital as he had been unwell. He was speaking to the media after he was discharged from the hospital.
Religion can be saved by any community only adopting fundamentalism.Tolerance is curse & antireligion.rigidity is fundamental for survival.

H.H. (Adv.) Jain said that the Shivalinga is in the interior portion of the area. If the surrounding area is examined further many more truths will be brought forth. But our lawful right is being taken away in the name of communal harmony.
AIMIM chief Owaisi said the ‘shivling’ found inside the Gyanvapi mosque complex this week is, in fact, a ‘fountain’ and declared that if it were to be considered the latter, ‘all fountains of the Taj Mahal must be shut down.’https://t.co/8ezKNq8lYU

MIM President and MP Asaduddin Owaisi also has said that it is a fountain and not a Shivalinga. To this H.H. (Adv.) Jain said, he might have more knowledge, but the place where the Shivalinga is found belongs to the Deity Shiva. A mosque cannot be there. Many more things will be found when the premise is dug for the survey.
