Supreme Court refuses to halt Hindu prayers in Gyanvapi mosque's southern cellar

PTC News Desk: The Supreme Court's recent decision regarding Hindu prayers at the southern cellar of the Gyanvapi mosque in Varanasi has sparked significant attention. On Monday, the apex court made a crucial ruling, declining to halt Hindu prayers in the southern cellar. Nevertheless, it issued an order for maintaining the status quo concerning religious observances by Hindus within the mosque premises.

In its statement, the bench highlighted the uninterrupted offering of Namaz by the Muslim community following the court's orders dated January 17 and January 31. Additionally, it acknowledged that the Hindu priests' performance of pooja is limited to the area known as tehkhana. Consequently, the court deemed it appropriate to preserve the existing state of affairs, allowing both communities to engage in worship activities under specified conditions.


According to reports from the legal website LiveLaw, the Supreme Court has scheduled the plea filed by the Gyanvapi mosque committee against the permission granted for Hindu puja in the southern cellar of the mosque for final disposal in July.

As this situation continues to evolve, further updates are anticipated. Please stay tuned for the latest developments.
