New Delhi: Varanasi district court issued notice to the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid committee on an application of Hindu worshippers, who have now sought carbon-dating of the disputed structure known to have been found inside the premises of the Gyanvapi mosque.
District judge A.K. Vishvesha is currently hearing a suit filed by five Hindu women, who are seeking the right to worship inside the premises of the mosque all year round. On September 12, the court rejected an application of the Masjid panel challenging the maintainability of the suit.
While admitting the application for carbon dating of the structure, the court also dismissed an application filed by the panel seeking eight weeks to appeal against the September 12 order. While hearing the application for carbon dating the structure in question, the court sought the Masjid panel’s objections to it and posted the matter for September 29.
