    Supreme Court Allows Hindu Prayers at Gyanvapi Mosque, Maintains Status Quo

    In a recent ruling, the Supreme Court addressed the religious situation at Varanasi’s Gyanvapi mosque. It refused to halt Hindu prayers in the mosque’s southern cellar, opting instead to maintain the current status quo for both Hindu and Muslim worshippers.

    The legal dispute arose from a Varanasi district court decision permitting Hindu prayers in the mosque’s cellar. This decision was contested by the mosque committee, leading to ongoing legal proceedings now under the Supreme Court’s purview.

    Previously, the Allahabad High Court dismissed the mosque committee’s plea, affirming the district court’s decision and criticizing the Uttar Pradesh government’s earlier ban on worship rituals in the cellar.

    The Gyanvapi mosque’s historical significance, potentially built over the remains of a Hindu temple during the Mughal era, adds complexity to the legal and religious landscape.

    The Supreme Court’s decision not to interfere in Hindu prayers marks a significant development in the ongoing dispute over religious practices and heritage preservation.

    The case’s final disposition is set for July, with potential implications for religious coexistence and legal governance in Varanasi. Stay updated on this story and other pressing issues with Peddler Media.
