New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday extended its previous order to protect the “Shivling” discovered in the Gianvapi mosque complex in Varanasi. The Supreme Committee extends protection until further orders are issued.

On Thursday, Chief Justice of India D.Y. Chandrachod, Justices Hema Kohli and JP Pardewala said they would form a seat to consider the matter.

“We will hold a hearing tomorrow at 3 pm,” the Supreme Court said on Thursday.

I ordered SC to protect the area where Shivling was discovered

On May 17, the Supreme Court issued a temporary injunction directing to protect the area in which “Shivling” was discovered and to grant access to Muslims for prayer. The order stated that this protection must continue until the Varanasi court decides whether the lawsuit can be maintained, and then for an additional eight weeks to allow the parties to pursue legal remedies.

The temporary injunction must be renewed

Hindu parties lawyer Vishnu Shankar Jain raised the case to the Supreme Court in a bid to extend the temporary injunction to protect “Shivling”.

The temporary injunction must be renewed, according to Jane, with it set to expire on November 12. He further emphasized the fact that the application of the Islamic parties under Order 7 Rule 11 (Plaintiffs’ Refusal) was denied.

The Varanasi District Court had ruled in September that the suit was not barred under the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act 1991.

The Supreme Court appointed a commissioner to survey

The Anjaman Entezamia Mosque Committee, which oversees the Gianvapi Mosque, argued that the claim made by Hindu women was not feasible, but was rejected.

The Supreme Court is currently considering an appeal lodged by the commission challenging an order by the Allahabad High Court allowing a court-appointed commissioner to inspect, survey and photograph the Gyanvapi Mosque, where both Hindus and Muslims have demanded the right to worship. .

On May 20, the Supreme Court issued an order transferring the civil judge’s civil suit relating to worship at the Gyanvapi Mosque to the district judge of Varanasi.

She said the district judge should decide the possibility of maintenance of civil action in Gyanvapi-Kashi Vishwanath on priority basis as requested by the management committee of Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Varanasi.
