Allahabad High Court stays survey of Kashi Vishwanath temple-Gyanvapi Mosque Complex by ASI

The Allahabad High Court today put a stay on the survey of the Kashi Vishwanath temple- Gyanvapi Mosque Complex by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), setting aside the April 8 order of a District Court. The High Court also stayed the proceeding of the case in Varanasi District Court.

The Single-Judge bench of Justice Prakash Padia passed the order on a petition filed by UP Sunni Central Waqf Board. The board has challenged the April 8 verdict of a Varanasi fast-track court that ordered a five-member ASI team to conduct a comprehensive physical survey of the complex of the two shrines to determine whether any temple was demolished to build the mosque adjacent to the Kashi Vishwanath temple. The High court had reserved its order after completion of hearing on 31st of August.
