New Delhi/Ananya Bhatnagar. Varanasi District Court has held that the argument of the Hindu side is maintainable in the Gyanvapi Masjid and Shringar Gauri case. The hearing of this entire matter will continue. The court gave this direction on Monday, which is considered a big success for the Hindu side. Dismissing the petition 7 Rule 11 of the Gyanvapi Masjid Anjuman Antjamiya Committee, the District Judge upheld the claim of the Hindu side and said that the suit was maintainable. Dismissing the said suit, the court also directed both the parties to formulate the issues and questions of law, which are to be dealt with in the main trial. The court has now fixed September 22 as the next date of hearing.
After both the parties have filed their written arguments, detailed arguments considering not only the oral arguments, but also the legal precedents will be placed before the court by both the parties. Since the matter has now been made maintainable, the report of the Advocate Commissioner will also have legal significance and can also be considered by the Varanasi Court. Dismissing the application filed by the Muslim side challenging the validity of the suit of the Hindu side under Order 7 Rule 11 of the Code of Civil Procedure during the court hearing on Monday, Varanasi District Judge Dr Ajay Krishna Vishwesh said, “I I have come to the conclusion that the suit plaintiffs are in respect of the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act, 1991 (Act No. 42 of 1991), the Waqf Act 1995 (Act No. 43 of 1995) and the U.P. The application 35C filed by the Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple Act, 1983 (Act No. 29 of 1983) and respondent No. 4, is liable to be dismissed.
Muslim side has option
Aggrieved by the orders of the Varanasi Court, the Muslim side has two broad legal options. Under this, the Muslim parties should approach the High Court of Allahabad or the Supreme Court of India. However, the relevant and most appropriate option is left to approach the Allahabad High Court. In fact, lawyers for the Muslim side have indicated to CNN-News18 that they will first analyze the order and then approach the High Court. The Supreme Court will also hear the matter in October.
5 women demanded worship and rituals
On April 18, 2021, Rakhi Singh, Lakshmi Devi, Sita Sahu, Manju Vyas and Rekha Pathak of Delhi filed a lawsuit seeking permission to worship and perform rituals of Shringar Gauri, Lord Ganesha, Lord Hanuman and Nandi. Along with this, they also demanded to stop the opponents from damaging the idols. Explain that the Anjuman Intejamiya Masjid Committee had said that the Gyanvapi Masjid was a Waqf property and said that the matter was not maintainable. The next hearing in the case will be on September 22.
