The Anjuman Prajataniya Masajid Committee will challenge the decision of the District Judge to hold the Gyanvapi Shringar Gauri case adjudicating in the Allahabad High Court. On Tuesday, the office bearers of the committee were busy in consulting senior lawyers. On the other hand, the Hindu side will also file a caveat in the High Court. So that in this case the court can issue an order only after listening to the Hindu side.
The Varanasi District Judge’s court on Monday considered the petition of the Hindu side to be maintainable and dismissed the objection of Anjuman Inazaniya Masajid Committee. Hearing on the petition seeking regular darshan-worship of Shringar Gauri and protection of other Deities will continue. In the hearing to be held on September 22 in the District Judge’s court, the District Magistrate, Commissioner of Police and Anjuman Arrangement Committee, who became parties, will file their accountability.
After this, there will be a hearing on the original case involving the regular darshan of Shringar Gauri and the protection of other Deities. Before this, the court can issue orders on the commission’s action etc. The Anjuman Inazaniya Masajid Committee looks after 22 mosques in the city including the Gyanvapi Masjid and is representing the Muslim side in the Gyanvapi Masjid-Shringar Gauri Complex case.
this is the whole matter
Rakhi Singh of Delhi and four women from Varanasi had filed a petition in the court of Civil Judge Senior Division for regular darshan-worship at Shringar Gauri, Gyanvapi on 18 August 2021. In this case, in May 2022, the court took commission action. After this, the Masajid Committee on behalf of the Muslim side reached the Supreme Court to declare the matter not maintainable. The Supreme Court transferred the matter to the court of District Judge Varanasi, ordering them to decide whether the matter was maintainable or not.
We are consulting senior lawyers of the High Court to challenge the decision. Till now 13 cases related to Gyanvapi are going on. More cases will be registered in the country after the order of the court. Now when some people want to spoil the atmosphere of the country, what can we do? We will continue our legal battle.

If the Muslim side moves the High Court, we will also go there and file a caveat. So that the High Court does not pass any order without hearing the Hindu side.
– Vishnu Jain, Advocate for the Hindu side
The order of the district court is not justified and we will move the high court. Studying the order of the District Judge. Soon this order will be challenged in the High Court.

Hate will not be allowed to spread in the country in the name of religion. We are with the Hindu side in the Gyanvapi case, as our aim is to remove the stigma created by (Mughal ruler) Aurangzeb. The honor of Islam lies in handing over the rights of Hindus to them.

Carbon dating will be sought to ascertain the age of Gyanvapi’s structure. Will demand in the court to adopt the procedure to find out the age of this structure.
