New Delhi/IBNS/UNI: The Supreme Court Monday directed both parties to maintain 'status quo' concerning the performance of Hindu worship at the 'Vyas Tehkhana' and observance of Namaz by Muslims in the rest of the Gyanvapi Mosque in Uttar Pradesh, as per the previous order passed by the district court in January 2024.

On Jan 17, the District Court appointed the District Magistrate as a receiver of the Tehkhana.

On Jan 31, the District Court modified this order and passed a mandatory injunction allowing rituals by a priest to be nominated by the plaintiffs and the Board of Trustees of the Kashi Viswanath temple.

A bench comprising Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandchrachud Justice JB Pardiwala and Justice Manoj Misra directed that the 'Hindu religious worship at the Tehkhana should be in terms of the order passed by the District Court on Jan 31 and subject to the custody of the receiver (District Magistrate) in terms of the earlier order passed on Jan 17.
