New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday refused to stay the Allahabad High Court order which had upheld the Varanasi district court's order allowing Hindus to perform prayers of deities inside the ‘Vyas Ji Ka Tehkhana’, southern celler of Gyanvapi mosque.
The court was hearing a plea by Anjuman Intezamia Masajid Committee, responsible for the Gyanvapi mosque’s management in Varanasi, against the High Court’s February 26 judgment.
The Supreme Court said bearing in mind the fact that the ‘namaz’ is offered in Gyanvapi mosque by Muslim community unhindered after the orders dated January 17 and January 31 (allowing puja inside Tehkhana) and the offering of ‘puja’ by Hindu priest is confined to the area of ‘Tehkhana’, it is appropriate to maintain status-quo so as to enable both the communities to offer worships in the above terms.
"At this stage, bearing in mind that NAMAZ IS BEING OFFERED UNHINDERED post the impugned order and the OFFERING OF POOJA BY HINDU PRIEST IS CONFINED TO THE AREA OF THE TEHKHANA, it would be appropriate to maintain status quo and allow both the sides to carry on with their religious observances", a CJI Chandrachud led bench ordered today.
The High Court dismissed the committee’s plea contesting a district court order from January 31 allowing Hindu worship in the cellar.
In its ruling on February 26, the High Court deemed the Uttar Pradesh government’s 1993 halt of worship rituals inside the “Vyas Tehkhana” as “illegal.” It rejected appeals from the mosque management committee challenging a Varanasi district judge’s January 17 order appointing the district magistrate as the receiver of the “Vyas Tehkhana” and the January 31 order allowing ‘puja’ to be performed there.
On January 31, the Varanasi District Court granted permission to priest Shailendra Kumar Pathak, who filed a plea seeking direction to allow him the right to worship Hindu deities in the cellar of the Gyanvapi.
