New Delhi: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) president Alok Kumar on Friday agreed with the Supreme Court's order in the Gyanvapi case, claiming that the Hindu side would be able to prove that the Shivlinga found in the vajukhana is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas. "We agree with the apex court that the matter is complex and requires a serious and experienced judge. The court said that the district court will look into it. We agree with the Supreme Court.''
The VHP president said he would be able to prove that the 'Shivlinga' in Gyanvapi is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas. He said that we believe that it is a Shivling, as Nandi is looking at it and the location shows that it is one of the original Jyotirlingas. The Mughals demolished the temple. We will be able to prove it in court and the Supreme Court will decide the matter. The judge has been authorised to take the report of the local commissioner and we will prove that it is the original Jyotirlinga itself.
He claimed that the 1991 Act would not apply to the Gyanvapi case. Because the Act states that if the religious place works on any other Act, then this Act is not effective. There is already a separate law for the Kashi Vishwanath temple. Today, the apex court has also indicated that the Act does not prevent the hearing of the case.
