Gyanvapi Mosque: Shivling Found In Pond

The lawyer representing the Hindu women has claimed that a shiva linga has been found in the pond inside the mosque complex.

The Anjuman Intejamiya Masjid management committee of the Gyanvapi mosque has petitioned the Supreme Court to stop the survey.

The mosque is located close to the iconic Kashi Vishwanath temple and the local court is hearing a plea by a group of women seeking permission for daily prayers before the idols on its outer walls.

The petitioners' lawyer insisted that the court had given a go-ahead. Hearing the matter last week, the local court had ordered videography can happen at all places asked for by the petitioners.

A lawyer representing the Gyanvapi Mosque trust that approached the Supreme Court against the filming order saying it is at odds with the Places of Worship Act, 1991, claimed nothing unusual was found during the survey.
