Justice Chandrachud said that according to our order, whether the petition of the Hindu side is maintainable or not, it is currently being heard in the lower court. It was told on behalf of the Masjid Committee that under Rule 7/11, the debate is going on in the lower court. We transferred the matter to the district judge. If the judge considers that the petition of the Hindu side is not maintainable, then this case will come to an end. But if he considers it maintainable, then the evidence will be kept. Let the lower court order come, we will keep your legal path open. If the verdict comes in your favor then the matter is over. Suppose if the lower court’s decision goes against you, then you have legal options.

What was demanded in the petition?

Seven women petitioners, including a lawyer, a professor and five social workers, have approached the Supreme Court. According to the petitioners’ lawyer Vishnu Shankar Jain, GPS is the safest, accurate and scientific method of checking this entire complex through electromagnetic radar, in which facts can be collected without tampering with anything. It has also been appealed to the Supreme Court that in view of the sentiments of Sanatan Dharma, the court should meet Gyanvapi and allow Kashi Vishwanath Temple Trust to establish Adi Vishweshwar Shivling near Vishwanath temple and worship it. Because around the Vishwanath temple in Kashi, the area of ​​​​five kos i.e. about 15 kilometers is the area of ​​​​Kashi’s presiding deity Vishweshwar. In the petition, a demand has been made to direct the Kashi Vishwanath Trust to take possession of the Shivling found in the Gyanvapi survey.
