🚨#GyanvapiCase: Varanasi Court today to pronounce order on Hindu worshipers' plea seeking scientific investigation of 'Shivalinga' found in the Wazookhana- a spot for Namazis to perform ablutions before prayers.
#VaranasiCourt #Gyanvapi
The Hindu plaintiffs have argued that the 'Shivlinga' is part of the suit property and under Order 26 Rule 10A of CPC, the court can issue a commission for its scientific investigation (including carbon dating).
#VaranasiCourt #gyanvapi
On the other hand, the mosque management committee has alleged that the concerned Shivlinga-like structure is a fountain that is not currently in use.

District Judge Ajay Krishna Vishwesha is likely to pronounce orders at around 2 pm today.

What they say:

1)Indian Muslims of current time mustn’t be held responsible for crimes done by tyrants like Tipu & Aurangzeb

& then they also say:

2)What happened in past mustn’t be settled for peace
By saying (2) they beat their (1).

I agree to (1) & hence want to fix all the issues of past (as it has nothing to do with current Muslims) & if anyone opposes such step (like #GyanvapiCase ), he/she is no different than that tyrant (Aurangzeb).
Indian can’t have place or affinity for any Aurangzeb under any circumstances.

If someone argues that now that Muslims have been praying there (say #GyanvapiCase ), since 3 centuries we must let it go for peace, then they put a big “?” on current Muslims.
