A day after the Supreme Court asked the Varanasi district magistrate to secure the wazu khana area where a Shivling was claimed to have been found during a videographic survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex, without impeding or restricting the rights of Muslims to offer namaz, the faithful flocked to the mosque for prayers and the mosque committee asked them to perform wazu at home before heading there.

In the adjoining Kashi Vishwanath complex, an idol of Nandi, gazing in the direction of the Gyanvapi mosque, has been drawing crowds ever since the claim of the discovery of the Shivling during the survey of the mosque complex.

District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma said for the convenience of the faithful who come to offer namaz, an application has been filed in court, seeking direction for shifting a water pipe outside. He said orders of the Supreme Court regarding the matter have been complied with — the top court will hear the matter again Thursday.
