Various questions are being raised on the claim of Shivling in Gyanvapi Masjid. The Muslim side says that it is not a Shivling but a fountain in the Vazukhana. On the other hand, according to the Hindu side, it is a Shivling. Petitioner’s husband and survey team member Sohanlal Yadav made another big claim on Aaj Tak channel. He said that this structure is like Shivling because it is made of complete black stone. Apart from this, there is no hole in the middle so that it can be considered as a fountain.
Sohanlal Arya said, a square brick has been pasted with cement over the so called Shivling. It has a plus sign on it. He claimed that during the survey, when the broom’s sink was seen, it went inside up to 6 inches. Viewed with a light on, did not sink more than 6 inches.
He said, during the survey, when the Muslim side was asked whether a pipe has been installed to bring water here, people said no, no pipe has been installed. Sohanlal claimed that the distance from Nandi to Vazukhana is 83 feet. There are artificial walls in the middle. Nandi’s face is directly towards the Shivling.
Rejecting Sohanlal’s claims, Ajaynath Yadav, counsel for the Muslim side said, “For the first time, Sohanlal himself is not the petitioner. He told that there is a structure like Shivling here. The stone figure is on the first floor. Below that is the cellar. No Shivling buried in the ground has been found in the basement. Till now the report has not been submitted in the court, even before that these people claim to have got Baba Mil Gaye.
