Varanasi court had given the verdict on 12 September
According to the information, the Varanasi District Court gave the verdict on 12 September. In the judgment, it was said that the court would continue hearing the petition of 5 Hindu women seeking daily worship. Apart from this, District Judge AK Vishvesh had also dismissed the petition of Anjuman Intejamia Masjid Committee (AIMC) on September 12. The petition argued that the petition of Hindu women violates the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act, 1991.
Need time to prepare for hearing: Muslim side
Mohd Tauheed Khan, counsel for the Anjuman committee, said that we need time to prepare, so we have given an application seeking eight weeks’ time for the next hearing.
