Ahmadi said, “We have filed a petition regarding the survey which has been directed to be done in respect of the property located in Varanasi. This (Gyanvapi) is a mosque from ancient times and this (survey) place of worship is expressly prohibited under the law.’ The Muslim side referred to the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act, 1991 and Section 4 thereof, which provides for the filing of any suit or initiation of any legal action in respect of any change in the religious character of any place of worship existing as on 15th August, 1947.

A Varanasi court on May 12, while dismissing a plea seeking removal of the court-appointed commissioner for conducting a videography survey of the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex, on charges of favoritism, ordered it to be completed by May 17. The district court also appointed two more lawyers, who would assist the Advocates Commissioner in conducting the survey at the mosque located near the Kashi Vishwanath temple.

The local court had delivered the verdict on a petition by a group of women, who sought permission to worship the idols of Hindu deities on the outer wall of the mosque daily. The mosque management committee had opposed videography inside the mosque and accused the court-appointed commissioner of favoritism. In the midst of this protest, the survey work was stopped for some time.
