New Delhi, July 26: On July 24, the Supreme Court approved the amendment to the order given in the Gyanvapi case.

A bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud said that the part of the order that talked about the disposal of the original petition of the Muslim side would be deleted.

Huzaifa Ahmadi, counsel for the Gyanvapi Masjid Committee, appeared before a bench headed by Supreme Court Chief Justice DY Chandrachud. Ahmadi told me that on July 24, they had debated stopping the survey.

The Supreme Court wrote in the order that their appeal declaring the petition of the Hindu side as inadmissible has also been disposed of. Then the Chief Justice said that this mistake was being rectified.

On July 24, the Supreme Court stayed the trial court’s order to survey the Gyanvapi mosque complex. A bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud ordered the Gyanvapi Masjid Committee to challenge the trial court’s decision by July 26. The Supreme Court had said that the order of the trial court would remain stayed until July 26.

On behalf of the ASI, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said that the Supreme Court had noted the argument of the ASI that it was not going to excavate the Gyanvapi mosque.
