The Allahabad High Court on Monday heard the Lord Vishweshwar Nath Temple Masjid dispute at Gyanvapi in Varanasi.  On behalf of the temple side, it was told in the court that Waqf law would not be applicable in the dispute.

A Single Bench of Justice Prakash Padia heard a petition filed by Anjuman Intazamia Masazid Varanasi.

It is argued by Vijay Shankar Rastogi, Counsel for the petitioner that character of the religious structure is ascertained on the basis of the whole property not on the basis of part of property and the religious character of the property cannot be changed by mere changing of a part only.

It is argued that when the whole evidence can come only thereafter the religious character of a property would be determined.

It is further argued that mere declaration of masque as Waqf Property, the Waqf Act would not be applicable because it is the dispute between Hindus and Muslims and not between two sets of the Muslim Community, therefore, the Waqf Act could not be applicable in the case.

It is also argued that the dispute is not a dispute of property simpliciter but it is a national dispute with emotions of millions of people attached to it. Hindu Community believes that the disputed site is a temple of Lord Vishweshwar where as the Muslim Community believes that the disputed site is a Masque.

It is further argued that the decision in the Ram Janmabhoomi case has increased the importance of the case.

The Court has fixed the next hearing of the petition on April 08, 2022.
