Mathura: A court has ordered the closure of a section of the Gyanwapi Masjid near the Kashi Vishwanath temple after a Shiva lingam was found inside it. The Varanasi District Civil Court issued the order following the completion of a video survey of the mosque. The court also directed the CRPF to provide security to the mosque. The court also directed that no more than 20 people should be allowed to pray in the area where the Shiva lingam was found. The court order was issued following a complaint by a lawyer that a Shiva lingam had been found in a well inside the mosque.

The commission that conducted the video survey had drained the water from the well used for bathing in the mosque. Advocate Vishnu Jain claims that a Shiva lingam was found here at this time. The lawyer had told the media that he had approached the court to protect the Shiva lingam.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Tuesday will hear a petition questioning the survey of the Gyanwapi Masjid in Varanasi. A bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud will consider the petition filed by the Anjuman Masjid Committee against the Varanasi court order to conduct a survey of the Gyanwapi Masjid. Last Friday, the Supreme Court refused to grant an interim order on the status quo in the survey, but the court agreed to consider a Muslim party’s petition against the survey.

The court-mandated videography survey of the Gyanwapi mosque complex concluded on Monday for the third day in a row amid tight security. The survey of the Masjid complex, which started at 8 am, ended at 10:15 am. Advocate Vishnu Jain, who claimed “great victory for the Hindus”, said the ‘Shiva lingam’ was found in the well used to perform ‘Wusu’ and that the Varanasi government had sealed the ‘Wusukhana’ as directed by the court. The court said the place where the Shiva lingam was found would be sealed and the security of the area would be handed over to the CRPF.

Following the completion of the survey, a Varanasi court directed Varanasi District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma to seal the area where the Shiva lingam was found and prevent people from entering the area. The lawyer told News18 that the survey was complete and could not be extended. He added that he was satisfied with the vital evidence.

Both the parties have complied with the rules of the court, ”said Varanasi District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma.
