    Hindu devotees have been greenlit by a Varanasi court

    Hindus can now worship inside basement of Gyanvyapi Mosque

    Kashi Vishwanath temple authorities to assign a priest for the same

Close on the heels of the Ram Mandir being inaugurated at Ayodhya, Hindus have another reason to celebrate. Hindu devotees have been greenlit by a Varanasi court to worship inside the basement of Gyanvyapi Mosque.

The court in its order noted that the devotees can pray at Vyas Ka Tekhana, an area which was hitherto ultra vires for Hindus. The court has also asked the district administration to make necessary arrangements for the puja facilities by the devotees. At the same time, it has also asked Kashi Vishwanath temple authorities to assign a priest for the same.

Expressing his delight at the court order, Vishnu Shankar Jain, the Hindu petitioner said that everyone would now have the right to perform puja there and noted that the district administration would have to fall in line with the court’s verdict. He also drew parallels with the 1993 court verdict that had allowed the opening of locked doors of Ram Mandir, which at that point in time was a disputed property.

On the other hand, the Muslim side is disappointed with the court order. Muslim petitioners are now considering moving the next higher court.

It might be recalled that a few Hindu women had knocked on the judiciary for allowing puja in the mosque.
