Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) [India]: After the study of the Kashi Vishwanath Temple-Gyanvapi Mosque complex in Varanasi concluded, lawyers on Monday claimed that a Shivling was located in the Gyanvapi Mosque.
” It was the third day of the survey. A stone was located there. We are declaring it to be Shivling. It is around 3 feet tall. It went to the spot where Muslims did wuzu. They had actually asserted it to be a water fountain yet after cleaning it was discovered to be Shivling,” lawyer Deepak Singh informed.
” We have actually filed an allure on trial that this area be secured as it can be damaged. Court has ordered the very same,” Singh included.
Subhash Chandra Chaturvedi, that belonged to the survey team, said that the group discovered a fish pond as well as there is a well-like structure in the middle of the fish pond.
” They claimed it is a water fountain. We raised the question that the fountain is created at the top yet just how can it be inside the water. After the water was gotten rid of, a black Shivling-like stone was discovered. It is absolutely the Shivling of Adi Viseshwar. They asserted it was a fountain. But we are particular that the Shivling should be very deep under the ground. We had worries that the Shivling may be tampered. Therefore, the management has been asked for to cordon off that area and maintain it secure,” Chaturvedi claimed.
In its order, the court stated that the DM, police commissioner and the CRPF commander Varanasi will certainly be responsible for the security of the covered area.
The civil court had actually selected a court commissioner to conduct the survey and videography of the site.
