NEW DELHI: In a significant ruling today, the Supreme Court has decided that no ASI survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex will be conducted until July 26. The court has also directed the Allahabad High Court's order not to be enforced during this period. Instead, the mosque committee has been advised to approach the High Court in the meantime.

The Gyanvapi mosque management committee, as per the Supreme Court's instructions, is set to challenge the Varanasi district court's order regarding the ASI survey of the mosque complex. Vishnu Shankar Jain, who represents the Hindu side in the Gyanvapi mosque case, expressed his thoughts on the matter, stating, "The SC has granted a stay on the execution of the Varanasi court's order for surveying the Mosque complex, allowing the Anjum to contest it before the High Court."

DM Varanasi responded to the Supreme Court's orders by affirming, "We will fully comply with the court's directive." The Supreme Court's stay on the ASI survey of Gyanvapi Mosque complex is effective until 5 pm on July 26.

In a separate incident earlier today, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) team arrived at the Gyanvapi Mosque in Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi to conduct a scientific survey of the mosque complex, situated adjacent to the Kashi Vishwanath temple. However, this survey is now on hold due to the recent court rulings.

Last Friday, the Varanasi Court had issued directions for conducting an ASI survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex, except for the 'Wazukhana' area, which had been sealed.
