This is the case
In December 2019, advocate Vijay Shankar Rastogi filed a petition in the civil judge’s court on behalf of Swayambhu Jyotirlinga Lord Vishveshwar. In which the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) was requested to survey the entire knowledge base. He had filed a petition as a friend of Swayambhu Jyotirlinga Lord Vishveshwara. Subsequently, in January 2020, the Anjuman Intejamia Masjid Committee filed a counter-protest demanding the ASI survey the Gyanvapi mosque and campus. The first petition was filed in 1991 by the Swayambhu Jyotirlinga Lord Vishweshwar in Varanasi Civil Court for permission to worship at Gyanvapi.
Demand to remove mosque from temple land
In this case, the petitioner claimed that the Kashi Vishwanath temple was built by Maharaja Vikramaditya some 2,050 years ago, but the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb destroyed the temple in 1664. During this time it is claimed that its remains were used to build the mosque, which is known as the Gyanvapi Mosque built on the temple land. The petitioner requested the court to issue a directive to remove the mosque from the temple land and give back its possession to the temple trust.
