The Hindu side said that thousands of years before the Islamic rule in India, the property belonged to Adi Vishweshwar. God’s property cannot be given to anyone. It was forcibly occupied by Aurangzeb being the ruler.
The Hindu side has filed its reply in the Supreme Court in the Gyanvapi Masjid survey case. The Hindu side has demanded the dismissal of the petition of the Masjid Committee. The matter will be heard on Friday. In its affidavit, the Hindu side said that the petition of the Muslim side is not maintainable. The petition should be dismissed. Aurangzeb had passed the order to demolish the temple in the capacity of sovereign. This land does not belong to any Muslim, nor does it belong to Muslim organization or Waqf Board. The worshipers are already worshiping the deities inside the mosque.
In its reply, the Hindu side referred to the religious practice of ‘Parikrama’ and said that worshipers of Lord Shiva and Hindus in general worship the god Adivisheshwara, Goddess Shringar Gauri and other deities, who are present within the property. Parikrama around the deity is an integral part of the worship recognized by Hindu law. Thousands of devotees circumambulate the parikrama route and perform other rituals. On the days of festivals lakhs of devotees gather to worship.
The Hindu side said that thousands of years before the Islamic rule in India, the property belonged to Adi Vishweshwar. God’s property cannot be given to anyone. It was forcibly occupied by Aurangzeb being the ruler. This does not give the right to the property to the Muslims. Aurangzeb did not establish any waqf. This place is not a mosque.
