Land belongs to temple even after demolition: Counsel for Hindu side in Gyanvapi mosque case

Prayagraj (UP), Dec 8 (PTI) In the Gyanvapi mosque case, the counsel representing the Hindu side on Thursday argued that even with the temple’s demolition at the site, the land does not lose its nature of being a temple land, and thus the Places of Worship Act does not apply in the case.

The submission was made in response to a petition relating to the suit seeking regular worship of Shringar Gauri and other deities in the mosque in Varanasi.

The counsel said that the temple existed on the contested land much before the independence of India.
