Court issued notice: Twist in Kashi Vishwanath Temple-Gyanvapi Masjid case

New Delhi: A new twist came up on Friday in the Kashi Vishwanath Temple and Gyanvapi Masjid case when the court accepted a new petition in its judgement. The court of Civil Judge Senior Division Mahendra Kumar Singh ruled in the case of darshan, puja, aarti, bhog, and rituals performed in the 'phase' of Lord Adi Visheshwara and Goddess Maa Shringar Gauri and other deities inside the temple premises.

The judgment said that the matter is related to the right to completion. It comes under a civil right. So, it will be disposed of by civil suit. On February 18, 2021, the temple side filed a new petition in the bench of the Civil Judge Senior Division Court. Which claimed that the Places of worship Act 191 is against the Indian Constitution. In this petition, it was demanded that the free area of the Adi Visheshwar 5 Kos should be freed.

The plea says that Aurangzeb, who has broken the part of the temple, should be made back and restored to the pooja of The Shringar Gaurai which was stopped. With this, the petition also says that the Waqf Act does not apply here. Union of India, UP Government, District Magistrate, SSP Varanasi, UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, Anjuman Islamia Masjid Committee and Trust of Kashi Vishwanath have been named as defendants in this case.
