PM Modi should break silence on Gyanvapi: Owaisi
Speaking to the media, Owaisi said that the Gyanvapi Mosque is protected by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). He asked in a questioning tone, ‘Is the Gyanvapi Masjid not a protected monument by ASI? Who is responsible for ASI – Prime Minister. He further said, ‘It is the constitutional responsibility of the Prime Minister to break his silence and say that his government stands for the 1991 Act and will not allow any spectacle to happen.’
Babri Masjid snatched by cheating
In a conversation with the media in Owaisi, the mention of the Babri Masjid case was also raised. He said the same thing started with the Babri Masjid and eventually it was snatched from the Muslims by deceit. Owaisi claimed that after the Supreme Court’s verdict on Babri Masjid, the rule of law has weakened, India as a country has also weakened. Owaisi said, ‘I am saying this because we lost the Babri Masjid by these tricks and deceit. What happened – India became weak. The rule of law weakened.
It is the constitutional responsibility of the Prime Minister to break his silence and say that his government stands for the 1991 Act and will not allow any farce.

Owaisi said – now do not turn the pages of the past
Owaisi said that now the incidents like Babri Masjid could not be repeated, so there is no need to go back to the past. The Hyderabad MP said that the 1991 Place of Worship Act is final and should be followed. He said, ‘Let us not go back to the past by turning back. Have respect for the 1991 Act and the country will continue on it. Owaisi has been vocal on the temple-mosque issues in the past as well. He claims time and again that the ruling BJP at the Center keeps raising controversial issues to divert the attention of common citizens from issues like inflation, unemployment.
Survey work resumed on Saturday
It may be noted that the survey-videography work of Gyanvapi Masjid complex in Varanasi district of Uttar Pradesh started once again on Saturday morning amid tight security arrangements and will continue on Sunday as well. On Saturday, over 1,500 policemen and PAC personnel were deployed to guard the Gyanvapi mosque complex.

Important decision of the court came on the demand of some women
The Gyanvapi Masjid is located close to the iconic Kashi Vishwanath Dham and a local court is hearing a plea by a group of women seeking permission for daily prayers in front of idols on its outer walls. District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma had earlier said that an important meeting was held with all concerned on Friday, in which they were appealed not to obstruct the work of the commission set up by the court and cooperate in maintaining law and order. .
Court ordered to conduct survey
Civil court judge (senior division) Ravi Kumar Diwakar on Thursday dismissed the objection of the Muslim side and decided not to conduct a survey inside the Gyanvapi mosque and not to remove the advocate commissioner Ajay Mishra, appointed for the task. Earlier, Syed Mohammad Yasin, Joint Secretary, Anjuman Inazaniya Masajid, which maintains the Gyanvapi Masjid, said on Friday, “We have challenged the order passed by the court of Civil Judge Ravi Kumar Diwakar on Thursday in the Supreme Court. The court has said that it will go through all the files before passing any order on it. If he does not pass any order on this matter then we can also approach the High Court.
Allegation of favoritism also dismissed
A Varanasi court had on Thursday dismissed a plea seeking removal of advocate commissioner Ajay Mishra, appointed for conducting survey-videography work of Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex, on charges of favoritism. The court had made it clear that videography would be done inside the Gyanvapi mosque as well. The civil court judge (senior division) Diwakar, while rejecting the plea for removal of advocate commissioner Mishra, appointed Vishal Singh as special advocate commissioner and Ajay Pratap Singh as assistant advocate commissioner. He had also given instructions to submit the report by May 17 after videography of the entire campus.
