Hearing on the Gyanvapi Masjid dispute case was held in Varanasi's district court on Monday. Hearing the arguments from both the sides, the court has reserved the decision. This decision will come tomorrow, that is Tuesday at 2 pm. It simply means that the district court has reserved its order on the basis of what should be the process of further hearing of this dispute.

In fact, on behalf of the plaintiff, it was demanded from the court of the District Judge that the court should first look at the evidence collected during the survey and then conduct any further hearing. On the other hand, the respondent Muslim side wanted to hear only on the maintainability of the case. On which the court has fixed the date for hearing tomorrow.

The Supreme Court had transferred this matter to the Varanasi Court. The Supreme Court has directed the court to complete the hearing in 8 weeks.

Senior advocate Madan Bahadur Singh appeared on behalf of the Hindu side in the court. He was accompanied by Advocates Hari Shankar Jain and Vishnu Shankar Jain. Advocate Rais Ahmed and C Abhay Yadav appeared from Muslim side.

On behalf of the Muslim side, Abhay Nath Yadav referred to the 1936 case of Din Mohammad. Said that Namaz is being offered in the Gyanvapi mosque for a long time, so it is a mosque and the High Court also gave a verdict in Muslim favor.

Today, the Varanasi District District Court has reserved its order on the basis of what should be the process of further hearing of this dispute. That is, the court will decide whether further hearing should be confined to order 7 of the CPC, rule 11 or whether the report of the commission and 7/11 of the CPC should be heard simultaneously.

In the light of the Places of Worship Act 1991, Order 7 Rule 11 of the Code of Civil Procedure i.e. CPC prohibits taking counterclaims at any religious place directly to the court. That is, an application to change the nature and status of a religious place cannot be made directly in the court. That is, that application will not be maintainable.

But this law and the rules of the CPC do not prevent the formation of any inquiry, commission or survey to identify the nature and condition of any religious place. If the survey report of any commission confirms the claim of the claimant side regarding the disputed religious and the court accepts it, then the court will hear it further.

To be known that, Doctor Ajay Krishna Vishwesha will hear the Gyanvapi case.
