The High Court halted the ASI survey of the Gyanvapi structure due to the ongoing hearings in the Supreme Court. The Muslim side, represented by Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee, had approached the Supreme Court to seek a stay on the survey. Thus, the apex court put the survey on hold until July 26, 5 PM.

Advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain who represents the Hindu petitioners accused the Muslim side of misleading the Supreme Court. He stated the objective of the ASI survey is to determine the veracity of the Hindu side’s claim. The Hindus claim that the mosque adjacent to the Kashi Vishwanath temple in Varanasi was constructed on top of a temple structure.

Legal Validation to Lower Court’s Verdict

The High Court’s decision provides legal validation to the Varanasi district court’s order. It affirms the importance of conducting a scientific survey of the Gyanvapi structure in the eyes of the law. Moreover, it ensures that the legal process is followed in determining the historical and archaeological aspects of the site. This sets a precedence for any future disputed site in India.

Impartial and Science-backed Justice

The High Court’s assertion that the scientific survey highlights the court’s commitment to uncovering the scientific truth behind the historical and religious claims associated with the site. It emphasizes the significance of impartiality and evidence-based investigation in resolving long-standing disputes among the disputing communities.

Community Reactions

The ruling may elicit diverse reactions from different communities involved in the dispute. If evidence contrary to the Muslim claim is found, it could lead to another dispute like the Ayodhya Ram Mandir. All stakeholders need to respect the court’s decision and cooperate with the ongoing survey to ensure a fair and transparent investigation.

National and International Attention

The Gyanvapi structure holds religious and historical importance for both communities. The Allahabad High Court’s ruling is likely to attract attention at the national and international levels. It may also spark discussions about heritage preservation, religious harmony, and the importance of evidence-based approaches in resolving such disputes.

Overall, the High Court’s ruling has significant implications for the ongoing dispute over the Gyanvapi structure. The ASI survey’s findings and subsequent legal proceedings will play a crucial role in shaping the future course of action and potential resolution of the contentious issue. Currently, both the disputing stakeholders are fueling information campaigns to influence public perception. The Soros media is busy trying to demonize Hindus as oppressors of so-called ‘minority’ communities. Contrarily, the BJP and Sanatanis are trying to present it as a case of preservation of the Hindu religion. Emotions run high on both sides, especially after the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Ayodhya Ram Mandir case.

Thus, the Gyanvapi structure ruling is also significant for the central BJP government. The survey and its findings have the potential to sway the Hindu voters that seek to restore India to its erstwhile glory. Moreover, it also has the potential to spark communal violence in the nation. It is obvious that the ‘toolkit’ is at work in various parts of the nation to convince the world of the breakdown of the democratic sovereignty of India. Additionally, this narrative is used by sly politicians of the “dot, dot, dot” brigade to enjoy the fruits of divisive politics. Therefore, the Indian public should wonder if the preservation of the millennia-old culture is important when the majority of this nation suffers under oppression by minority and their appeasement by politicians.
