Hindu side filed caveat
The Anjum Intejamia Committee, which oversees the Gyanvapi Mosque, had approached the Allahabad High Court to challenge the Varanasi Court’s decision. The Hindu side has filed a caveat in the High Court demanding that the petition be heard before hearing it.

Muslim side’s lawyer Akhlaq Ahmed said that the order ignored the Advocate Commissioner report of 2022, the ASI report and the 1937 decision, which was in our favor. The Hindu side has not presented any evidence that worship took place in the basement before 1993. There is no such idol at that place.

The Gyanvapi Mosque has four ‘cellars’, one of which is still in the possession of the Vyas family. The Vyas family had filed a petition saying that their lineage has been performing the puja. But the worship has been stopped since 1993. Therefore they should be allowed to enter the crypt and resume worship.
