Gyanvapi ASI survey: Masjid committee moves Supreme Court, challenges Allahabad HC order

New Delhi, August 3: Hours after the Allahabad High Court allowed the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to conduct a survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex in Varanasi, the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee has moved the Supreme Court challenging the verdict.

The advocate of the Masjid Committee urged the Supreme Court not to allow the ASI to carry out the survey, but the apex court said "it will look into the issue".



The Allahabad High Court on Thursday allowed the ASI to conduct a survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex in Varanasi.

"The Allahabad High Court has said that the ASI survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex will start. The Sessions Court order is upheld by the High Court," Vishnu Shankar Jain, representing the Hindu side in the Gyanvapi survey told mediapersons.

The Allahabad High Court had dismissed Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee's plea, challenging the ASI survey of the mosque complex, adjacent to Kashi Vishwanath Temple in Varanasi.

The Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee had challenged the Varanasi District Judge's July 21 order.

On July 21, Varanasi District Judge AK Vishvesha ordered the ASI survey of the Gyanvapi complex on an application moved by four Hindu women on May 16, 2023. The order of the District Judge, however, excluded the Wuzu Khana (ablution pond area) of the complex, which has been sealed on the order of the top court.
