Supreme Court will hear a number of petitions from Hindu believers asking for permission to worship the “Shivling”

The Supreme Court will hear a number of petitions from Hindu believers asking for permission to worship the “Shivling” that was discovered at the contentious Gyanvapi site, which is close to Varanasi’s well-known Kashi Vishwanath Temple. To permit Shivling darshan and puja, a petition has been submitted.

The arguments of attorney Vishnu Shankar Jain that the case is scheduled for hearing on July 21 along with the ongoing petition of the “Anjuman Intezemia Masjid Committee,” which oversees the affairs of the Gyanvapi mosque, were noted by a bench consisting of Chief Justice N V Ramana and Justices Krishna Murari and Hima Kohli.

Another bench headed by Justice D Y Chandrachud is seized of a plea of the mosque committee challenging the survey of the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex in which the ‘Shivling’ is stated to be found and listed it for hearing on July 21.

“This is a petition to permit ‘darshan and pooja’ of the ‘Shivling’ that was discovered in the complex and to order the ASI to perform the ‘Shivling’s’ carbon dating. On July 21, the petition submitted by the Masjid Committee contesting the commission survey will be heard. Please include it with that on the list, Jain asked.

The Supreme Court decided to schedule the case for consideration at the same time as the Masjid Committee’s case, which will be heard by the bench presided over by Justice Chandrachud.

The Varanasi District Magistrate was ordered by the top court on May 17 to secure the safety of the space inside the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex where the ‘Shivling’ was allegedly discovered in the survey, and to let Muslims to practise ‘Namaz’ and’religious observances’.

Later, the bench moved the district judge’s jurisdiction over the civil lawsuit filed by Hindu worshippers against the Gyanvapi mosque.

Varanasi claims that given the “complexities” and “sensitivity” of the situation, it is preferable for a senior judicial officer with over 25 to 30 years of experience to handle this case.

The bench had further stated that its earlier interim order of May 17 directing protection of the area where “Shivling” is allegedly located and permitting Muslims to offer “Namaz” in mosque premises shall continue in effect until the maintainability of the suit is decided by the district judge and thereafter for eight weeks to allow the aggrieved parties to approach the higher court.

The hearing in the case is still going on at the Varanasi district judge’s court.
