Gyanvapi Case: All opposition parties including Congress kept silent on Gyanvapi decision, BJP openly welcomed

Gyanvapi Case: In the Gyanvapi-Sringar Gauri case, the District Judge of Varanasi has dismissed the petition of the Muslim side, saying that the petition of the Hindu side is maintainable. District Judge Ajay Krishna Vishwesh, while giving a big verdict in this case on Monday, said that the court will continue hearing the petition seeking worship of Shringar Gauri. After this big decision, while the BJP has openly welcomed it, all the other opposition parties including the Congress have kept silence about this decision.

After the verdict was pronounced by the Varanasi district court on Monday, BJP leaders were busy in welcoming them openly, but there has been no official reaction from the Congress and the opposition parties on this decision so far. Among the opposition leaders, only AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi expressed strong objection to this fact and said that we are moving on the path of Babri Masjid in this matter too. He has appealed strongly against this decision in the High Court. The All India Muslim Personal Law Board has termed this decision as disappointing.

Congress leaders avoided commenting on the verdict

The Congress, which has openly expressed its reaction on the important issues facing the country, has so far remained silent in this matter. No senior Congress leader refrained from commenting on the matter. After this decision, there was an atmosphere of happiness and celebration in Varanasi, but local Congress leaders were also seen avoiding making any comment in this matter.

Local leaders also did not react to the incident. Political experts believe that keeping in mind the electoral equation, the Congress is avoiding making any comment in this matter. By the way, not only Congress, other opposition parties have also kept silence in this matter.

Supported the 1991 Act

Earlier, during the month of May last, an order was given by the Civil Judge Senior Division to conduct a survey of the Gyanvapi campus. At that time, it was said by the Congress that no change should be made in the status of any religious place. Now after the big decision was given by the District Judge in the Gyanvapi case, silence has been taken from the Congress side.

During the Congress’s Chintan Shivir in Udaipur, there was a discussion about the Places of Worship Act. During this discussion, senior party leader P Chidambaram had said that this Act was enacted in 1991 during the government of Narasimha Rao. He said that we believe that after the passage of this Act, there should be no change in the nature of religious places.

Owaisi reacted sharply

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has certainly reacted sharply to this matter. He said that this decision of the district court of Varanasi should be strongly advocated in the High Court. Owaisi said that the purpose of the Worship Act of 1991 appears to be defeated after the order of the Varanasi District Judge.

He said that we are going on the same path on which the issue of Babri Masjid was there. He said that at the time of the Babri Masjid verdict itself, I had warned that after the verdict, problems will arise elsewhere in the country in the future as this decision was given on the basis of faith.

Rahmani termed the decision disappointing

Meanwhile, Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani, general secretary of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, has termed the Varanasi district court’s decision as disappointing and sad. He said that from the time of the Babri Masjid dispute in 1991, it was approved that status quo would be maintained in all religious places except Babri Masjid. Despite this, it is disappointing to see such a decision.

Rahmani said the issue of Gyanvapi has been raised by people who do not care about the unity of the country and the biggest regret is that the local court, ignoring the 1991 Act, allowed the petition. He said that with this episode affecting the unity of the country, communal harmony would be damaged and unnecessary tension would be created.
