The ASI team investigates Varanasi’s Gyanvapi Masjid for the second day. The Muslim part is included in this survey. He only opened the lock to the mosque. The cellar occupied by the Muslim side was also due to be opened today, but the lawyer for the Muslim side refused to hand over the key to the cellar.
The ASI is monitoring the entire campus for the second day of Saturday in Gyanvapi. The mosque’s janitor, Ejaz Ahmed, said that today the lock to the mosque had been opened. The ASI team entered the mosque, leaving the bathroom, the investigation is also underway inside the mosque. Meanwhile, a new controversy has arisen in the case. The Muslim side refused to open the basement of their property.
The lawyer for the Muslim side, Mumtaz Ahmed, said after leaving the Gyanvapi campus that we were cooperating fully with the investigation. However, he also said, “Why should we give him the key to the basement, he will open it where it needs to be opened?
He added that the ASI team was still inspecting the upper part. Even on Friday, investigative work could not be carried out in the basement, because none of the Muslim parties had opened the lock or even given the key. Reportedly, due to the accumulation of dirt and debris in the basement, work on measuring the length and width has not yet begun, so today the basement had to be opened and cleaned.
The Muslim side joins the survey
Before joining the ASI investigation, Mohammad Yasin, deputy secretary of the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid committee, said we were waiting for the court proceedings. Now that the court has refused to suspend the investigation, we will cooperate fully with the ASI investigation. No member of the Muslim community took part in the investigation, which took place on August 4. On the other hand, the lawyer for the Hindu side, Vishnu Shankar Jain, said that today work will be carried out according to a detailed method, which will decide the shape of the subsequent investigation. The Varanasi District Judge’s Court has extended the ASI’s investigation period to 4 weeks.
Mosque not to be touched: On Friday, in the Gyanvapi case, the Supreme Court refused to stay the Allahabad High Court’s order authorizing the ASI to conduct a scientific study in the Gyanvapi mosque complex. A bench comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice JB Pardiwala and Justice Manoj Mishra also ordered that the mosque not be touched during the ASI’s investigation and that there be no excavations.
