Gyanwapi mosque: Sunni Waqf Board to challenge Varanasi court order

The Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board stated on Thursday that it could challenge within the excessive court the Varanasi court order on the disputed premises claimed each by the Kashi Vishwanath temple and the Gyanwapi mosque.

The order, given by a senior division civil court, requested the state authorities to get the disputed premises examined by a five-member group of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) at its expense.

In an announcement, Sunni Central Waqf Board chairperson Zufar Ahmad Farooqui stated the order can be challenged earlier than the Allahabad High Court.

“Our understanding is clear that this case is barred by the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act, 1991,” Faruqi stated.

“The Places of Worship Act was upheld by a five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court in the Ayodhya judgment. The status of the Gyanwapi mosque is, as such, beyond question,” he stated.

The chairperson added that the order was “questionable” as a result of technical proof may solely complement sure foundational details. “No evidence has been produced before the court that suggests that there was a prior existing temple at the site of the mosque,” he stated.

Even within the Ayodhya judgment, the ASI excavation was in the end of no use. The ASI didn’t discover proof that the Babri Masjid was constructed upon demolition of a temple, Farooqui stated.

The Supreme Court has particularly noticed that there was no such proof and this apply of mosques being “investigated” by the ASI has to be stopped, the assertion stated.

“We will be approaching the Hon’ble High court immediately against this unwarranted order,” it added.
