An appeal has been filed before the Supreme Court against an order of Allahabad High Court permitting a court appointed commissioner to inspect, conduct survey and videography of the Gyanvapi mosque in Varanasi to which Hindus and Muslims have laid claim for right to worship [Anjuman Intezamia Masajid vs Rakhi Singh & 8 others].The appeal by Anjuman Intezamia Masajid was mentioned by Senior Counsel Huzefa Ahmadi before Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana seeking urgent listing. "Please list this milord. The survey is taking place today," said Ahmadi. The CJI said that he will examine the petition and documents and list it. "I have no idea about this case. Let me look at the papers. We will list it," the CJI said. .The appeal arises from a suit filed in lower court by Hindu parties claiming that the mosque houses Hindu deities and Hindus should be allowed to do worship and puja at the site. The lower court had appointed a court commissioner to conduct a survey and videography of the site.The same was challenged before Allahabad High Court which dismissed the appeal on April 21. Subsequently, the Masajid Committee filed a plea before the lower court claiming that the court commissioner was biased and should be replaced. The same was dismissed yesterday paving way for the survey. .The suit before the lower court was filed by one Rakhi Singh and others who sought a declaration that their right to profess their religion as guaranteed under Article 25 of the Constitution is breached.It was claimed that there are deities such as Maa Gauri, Lord Ganesh and Hanuman etc at the site and that Hindus should be allowed to enter the site and offer their prayers and perform pooja and offer bhog to their deities.The civil judge after hearing the contentions had passed an order on August 18, 2021 appointing an advocate commissioner. The judge had also ordered the commissioner to visit the site and inspect and collect evidence as to whether the deities exist at the site. The commissioner was further given liberty to seek police force assistance in case of any disturbance or resistance to collection of evidence by virtue of videography.
