Gyanvapi Update Today:

Gyanvapi Update today, July 24, 2023, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) survey was halted by the Supreme Court on Monday until 5:00 p.m. on July 26. The Varanasi Court ordered a thorough scientific survey of the Gyanvapi premises, which resulted in this decision.

The Supreme Court has advised the petitioners to file their case with the Allahabad High Court as soon as possible, and the High Court has been directed to hear the case before the stay order expires.

The bench was led by Chief Justice of India D.Y. Chandrachud, who clarified that the trial court’s order would not be enforced until 5:00 p.m. on July 26. The solicitor general also promised that no excavation work would be carried out for at least one week.

The Varanasi District Court last week ordered the ASI to conduct a thorough survey of the Gyanvapi Masjid to determine whether it was built on top of an existing Hindu temple. The court emphasised the importance of this scientific investigation in revealing the truth.

Following the latest Supreme Court order, the District Magistrate of Varanasi stated that they would follow the court’s decision.

Gyanvapi Update today: It is to be noted that a 30-member ASI team arrived in Varanasi on Sunday and began their scientific survey inside the Gyan Vapi Mosque, which is next to the Kashi Vishwanath Temple.

During the hearing, senior advocate Huzefa Ahmadi, representing the Muslim side, asked the Supreme Court to stay the trial court’s order. He contended that because the High Court had previously stayed the previous ASI survey order, the trial court should not have issued it again.
