INDIA Team Latestly|

A court in Varanasi has ordered the Archaeological Survey of India to carry out a physical survey of the town's Gyanvapi Mosque, located next to the famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple. Reacting to the order, the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board said it will challenge the subordinate court's order in the Allahabad High Court. Court ordered the survey while ruling on a three-decade old petition. The petition contended that Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb had demolished an ancient temple of "Lord Vishweshwar" & "constructed a mosque with the help of the ruins of the said temple".
