Supreme Court defers ‘Scientific Survey’Of 'Shivling' At Gyanvapi Mosque.

The scientific assessment to establish the age of the shivling found in the Gyanvapi Mosque complex in Varanasi has been deferred by the Supreme Court on Friday, stating that utmost care needs to be taken in this matter.

A challenge to the Allahabad High Court’s order on May 12 to conduct a scientific survey, including carbon dating, to establish the age of the structure, was being challenged in the Supreme Court. The bench led by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud stated that since the implications of the impugned order meant closer scrutiny, the implication of the directions concerned in the order shall stand deferred until the next date.

In response to the mosque committee appeal against the High Court decision for the scientific study and carbon dating of the shivling, the bench also sent notices to the Centre, the Uttar Pradesh government, and the Hindu petitioners. The Supreme Court was considering an appeal that challenged the Allahabad High Court’s directive to carry out a scientific survey to carry out a scientific survey that included carbon dating to establish the age of the shivling.

The shivling was discovered earlier this year during a video survey conducted in the Gyanvapi Mosque complex following the orders of a lower court in Varanasi. The management of the mosque objected to the scientific examination, claiming that the supposed shivling is a fountain for ceremonial washing ahead of prayers.

The mosque, which is situated next to the Kashi Vishwanath Temple, is one of the three temple-mosque rows that the BJP focused on in the 1980s and 1990s and gained national attention, along with Ayodhya and Mathura. Following the Supreme Court ruling in 2019 in favour of a temple in the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute, the legal struggle over Gyanvapi intensified. The proposed scientific survey of shivling was adjourned for the time being, and both the Centre and the Uttar Pradesh government consented to this request.
