Hc Adjourns Hearing In Aimcivil Revision Plea Till Nov 3 | Allahabad News


Prayagraj: The Allahabad high court on Friday adjourned till November 3 the hearing of a civil revision petition filed by Anjuman Intezamia Masajid (AIM) — the Gyanvapi mosque management committee — by which it has challenged a Varanasi court order that turned down its objection to maintainability of the suit filed by five Hindu women, seeking permission to worship Shringar Gauri and other deities on the outer wall of Gyanvapi mosque.
Meanwhile, as per direction of the court dated October 19, the entire record of the aforesaid suit was brought before the high court from the Varanasi district court. Fixing November 3 as the next date of hearing, Justice JJ Munir directed the high court registry to permit the counsel concerned to inspect the record of the lower court, if they so desired. District judge Varanasi had on September 12, 2022 dismissed the AIM plea filed under Order 7 Rule 11 of Civil Procedure Code (CPC), challenging the maintainability of the suit filed by the five Hindu plaintiffs.
While rejecting the AIM plea, district judge, Varanasi had observed that the suit of the plaintiffs (five Hindu women) is not barred by the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act, 1991, The Waqf Act 1995, and the UP Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple Act, 1983 as was being claimed by the AIM. The revision petition has been filed challenging September 12 order on ground that the suit before the court below is barred under the Places of Worship Act, 1991, which provides that no suit can be filed seeking conversion of any religious place as existed on August 15, 1947.
