The plea has been moved to Varanasi Civil Judge Court seeking permission to offer Chadars and hold Urs at the Mazars allegedly present in the mosque compound.

“The government should strongly protect the 1991 Worship Act, otherwise the minority community will be disappointed with justice and will feel that all the doors of justice are closed for them,” the board said after a Varanasi Court on Monday dismissed a plea of the Anjuman Islamia Masjid committee challenging the maintainability of the suit filed by five Hindu women seeking worshipping rights in the Gyanvapi mosque compound.
