Gyanvapi Case: HC to Hear Plea on Carbon Dating of ‘Shivling’ On Nov 30

Prayagraj: On November 30 the Allahabad High Court will hear the revision petition challenging Varanasi district judge’s order refuting the demand for carbon dating of the ‘Shivling’ found inside the Gyanvapi Masjid complex. Justice J J Munir passed the order on the revision plea filed by Laxmi Devi and others.

The matter was taken up in the high court on Monday. In the statement to the court, the ASI’s counsel said that there were more ways to determine the age of ‘Shivling’ and no damages could be caused.

Hindu parties had sought carbon dating of the ‘Shivling’ found during a court-mandated videography survey of the mosque premises. The revision petition has sought appropriate survey or excavation to find out the nature of construction beneath the ‘Shivling’ discovered on May 16, 2022.

They also want scientific investigation by carbon dating to determine the age, nature and other constituents of the ‘Shivling’.
