Gyanvapi case: Verdict today on allowing Hindus to pray


The Allahabad High Court will deliver its verdict today on a plea filed by the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee against the Varanasi District Court’s decision to allow Hindu prayers at ‘Vyas Ka Tekhana’, a restricted area inside Varanasi’s Gyanvapi mosque.

Monday’s verdict will come following the completion of a hearing on two petitions from the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee on February 15.

The verdict will be delivered by Justice Rohit Ranjan Agarwal’s single bench at around 10 am today.

It will be pronounced on the first appeals filed by the mosque committee.

Following the Varanasi district court’s order on January 31 which allowed priests to perform prayers before the idols in the southern cellar of Gyanvapi, religious ceremonies were performed on the mosque’s premises at midnight on February 1.

Later, the southern cellar had opened to devotees.

The mosque committee had moved the high court on February 2 within hours of the Supreme Court refusing to hear its plea against the Varanasi district court order and asking it to approach the high court.

On February 13, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited the Gyanvapi premises and worshipped at the ‘Vyas Ka Tekhana’.
