Advocate of the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee that manages the Gyanvapi Mosque in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, on Monday said petitioners' claim about a 'Shivling' is misleading.
Stating that there is no Shivling in the Wajookhana, Rais Ahmad Ansari said, “There is only a fountain in the wajookhana in the Gyanvapi mosque. The structure, which the petitioners are claiming to be a Shivling is a fountain. It is a misleading claim.” His statement came after a court in UP's Varanasi ordered the sealing of the spot where 'Shivling' was reportedly found.
A Supreme Court bench, led by Justice DY Chandrachud, is set to hear on Tuesday an appeal filed by the masjid committee against the Allahabad High Court's order allowing a court-appointed commissioner to inspect, conduct a survey and videography of the Gyanvapi Mosque.
