Gyanvapi Mosque Row Updates: Muslim Side to File Reply, AIMPLB to Extend Legal Help; Demand for Fresh Survey Near Area Facing Nandi’s Idol

The Varanasi civil judge senior division court, looking into the Gyanvapi mosque controversy, has asked the Muslim respondents to file their reply on Wednesday on the petition filed by the Hindu side, seeking demolition of a wall near the ‘wazu’ pond. The Hindu petitioners have also requested for access to the claimed ‘Shivling’ for ‘darshan puja’.

Meanwhile, the five women petitioners in the case have approached the civil court seeking a directive for a fresh survey on the area near the mosque’s eastern part facing an idol of Nandi in the adjacent Kashi Vishwanath temple.

Assistant Advocate Commissioner Ajay Pratap Singh said the court will hear the matter on Wednesday, with both the parties likely to argue over it
