The inquiry commission will now present the survey report of the Gyanvapi mosque in the Varanasi court. At the same time, politics has also intensified on this issue and statements of religious leaders have also started coming out. At the same time, Maulana Shahabuddin, the preacher of Dargah Hazrat in Bareilly, has given a controversial statement. He threatened that the mosque would remain till the Qayamat.
Hazrat’s preacher Maulana Shahabuddin said in a threatening manner, “Muslims can no longer tolerate all these matters. We gave Babri Masjid once. The Supreme Court’s decision came and the Muslims of the whole country bowed their heads in front of that decision. But now apart from this we cannot give another mosque. The scale of our patience should not be measured, the limit of our tolerance should not be exceeded. There was a Masjid, there is a Masjid and the Masjid will remain till the Qayamat.
At the same time, AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi said, “The commissioner appointed by the court has not claimed in the court to get the Shivling. Rather, the Hindu side has claimed and the court ordered to seal that place. This is against the Act made in 1991. There is no Shivling in the premises, but there is a fountain and this fountain is present in every mosque. Had the Shivling been found, the court commissioner should have told this.”
AIMIM national spokesperson Syed Wasim Waqar said, “Somebody made an application and the court ruled that the place should be sealed. This judgment was reminiscent of the 1949 Ayodhya verdict. When videography and report have not even been presented in the court, then how was anyone’s application accepted. If the application itself was to be accepted, then what was the need for the survey?
Maulana Yasub Abbas, General Secretary of All India Shia Muslim Personal Law Board and Shia religious leader, also asked the question, “Evidence has not been presented in the court yet. We respect the court’s decision. But it is a matter of great regret that whether it is a temple, a mosque, a gurudwara or a church, to politicize it in this way is not a sign of a healthy country.”
