|| Why Gyanvapi Is So Important For Hindus ||

Gyanvapi, actually written as Jnanavapi, to Hindus, is like what Jerusalem is for Jews, and, the following shloka from Skanda Purana, Kashi khanda confirms it:
#Gyanvapi Image
सन्ति तीर्थान्यनेकानि सद्यः शुचिकराण्यपि ।
परंतु ज्ञानवाप्या हि कलां नार्हंति षोडशीम् ।।

Meaning: There are many Tīrthas that sanctify (devotees) immediately. But they are not equal to even a sixteenth part of Gyanavapi.
Skandha Purana also says that every Hindu must visit Gyanvapi:

अहो कथं हि सा लभ्या यत्प्रभावोयमीदृशः ।
धिग्जन्म तेषां मर्त्येऽस्मिन्यैर्नैक्षि ज्ञानवापिका ।।

#kashivishwanath #allahabadhighcourt #Gyanvapi
Giving a last chance to ASI DG, Justice Prakash Padia said that if he is unable or not willing to file the reply as sought by the court, the matter can be heard without it or some other official who has surveyed/inspected the disputed site will file the reply.
The counsel for ASI DG today informed the court that the officer is still unwell and therefore sought four weeks' more time for filing the personal affidavit. The court orally observed that if the officer remains unavailable, how many more adjournments can be granted?

#VaranasiCourt #Gyanvapi

While on #Gyanvapi, some facts on #Bengal temples.
* In Malda's Gour-Pandua, Sikandar Shah built Adina Masjid with riches, pillars, doors, arches of temples.
* In ancient Kotivarsha, Dinajpur, invaders built Sultan Pir's Dargah on a temple. Its 4 granite pillars still stand. 1/3
* Shah Ata's Dargah in Kotivarsha/Devikot, now in Dinajpur, stands on ruins of a Buddhist temple, with a Tara figurine on the doorway.
* Dargah of Zafar Khan Ghazi at Tribeni, Hooghly, #Bengal, stands on a Krishna temple, walls of which had Ramayan, Mahabharat sculptures. 2/3
Thought my fellow Bengalis, especially the brainwashed, deracinated wokes, could use this info. The source is Sita Ram Goel's 'Hindu Temples: What Happened To Them'.
The list of such wounds is long, very long. If we don't learn from our scars, we will bleed again. #Bengal 3/3

Civil Judge (Sr. D.), Varanasi Court Ravi Kumar Diwakar, has received a #threat letter allegedly written by one Kashif Ahmed Siddiqui. The judge had ordered sealing of the spot at #Gyanvapi complex where #Shivlinga shaped structure has been found.
The letter states:
"Muslim of divided India knows very well that under pressure of nuturere of extremist Hindus, genocidal, Gurjrati #PrimeMinister of divided India, you will declare Gyanvapi mosque as temple and will call Mughals as tyrant robbers."
"Organizations like #RSS and all the affiliated Hindu extremist organizations and your #ModiJi have hatched a conspiracy to organize riots in #UP on the lines of Gujarat," it adds.

1. Bhagwat’s incendiary speech on #Gyanvapi mustn’t be ignored. He said an agitation for #Babri was necessary “for historical reasons”. In other words, RSS didn’t respect SC & participated in demolition of masjid. Does this mean that they’ll do something similar on Gyanvapi also?
2. Who is Mohan or Nadda to give an “assurance” on these issues? They hold no constitutional posts. Let @PMOIndia give a clear message that he stands by 1991 law. He has taken an oath on the Constitution. If he stands by it, all these Hindutva upstarts would have to stop
3. Before VHP was formed, Ayodhya wasn’t even on the Sangh’s agenda. It was only in 1989 with BJP’s Palanpur resolution that Ayodhya became part of the agenda.RSS has perfected political doublespeak. All of the jokers raising Kashi, Mathura, Qutub, etc have direct link to Sangh

#Gyanvapi matter is ongoing. Can't change history. Neither today's Hindus nor today's Muslims created it. It happened at that time.Islam came from outside via attackers. In the attacks,Devsthans were demolished to exhaust morale of those who wanted India's independence: RSS chief
Issues raised over places in which Hindus have spl devotion.Hindus don't think against Muslims.Ancestors of today's Muslims were Hindus too. It was done to keep them forever devoid of independence&suppress morale. So Hindus feel they(religious places)should be restored: RSS chief
If there are issues in mind, it rises. It is not against anyone. It should not be considered like that. Muslims should not consider it like that & Hindus too should not do that either. There is something like that, find out a path through mutual agreement: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat

Why is #Kashi so significant to Hindus? - Part 4 #Thread

""Microcosm & Macrocosm"

Cosmogram is a magico-spatial design that brings macro, meso, and microcosms together in a unified order. The focal point represents the earth's life-breath, and thus assists to explain and experience the fundamental interaction between Man and Cosmos.
The number 108, which is a numerical cosmogram in and of itself, has a cosmogonic meaning relating to constellations (lunar asterism, 27) and the human condition's rhythm or cardinality (8). Thus, cardinality, centrality, and circulation are defined.

Nikhil Upadhyay, a law student, seeks impleadment in the #GyanvapCase before Varanasi District Court alleging that only those places are protected under Places of Worship Act, 1991 which were constructed in accordance with the personal law of person constructing them.
"Retrospective cutoff date cannot be fixed to legalize illegal acts of barbaric invaders as Hindu Law (Temple Character never changes) was ‘Law in force’ at the commencement of the Constitution by virtue
of Article 372(1)," he argues.
#GyanvapiCase #VaranasiCourt
He further contends that Muslims cannot assert any right in respect of any piece of land claiming to be a Mosque unless it has been constructed on legally owned
and occupied virgin land.

Why is #Kashi so significant to Hindus? Part-2 #Thread

"Significance of Tirtha Yatra"

Kashi is referenced in the Puranas and Mahatmya Granthas as a Tirtha Khestra.

मरणं मंगलं यत्र विभूतिश्च विभूषणम्।
कौपीनं यत्र कौशेयं सा काशी केन मीयते।।

Pilgrimage sites of 🇮🇳
Although pilgrimages are not mentioned directly in Vedic literature (about 2000-500 B.C.), they were regarded an important aspect of spiritual fulfilment
(Aitareya Brahmana)
In Vedic literature, the Sanskrit term yatra meant "travel" rather than "pilgrimage," but yatra was accepted as meaning "pilgrimage" in Puranic literature (500 B.C. - A.D. 700).
