Lucknow: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has rejected the claims that Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has found any evidence of a Hindu temple at the site of the masjid.

According to Kashmir Media Service, AIMPLB executive member Qasim Rasool Ilyas In a statement, said the ASI report is not “conclusive evidence” in this controversial case.

“By doing this, the opposition party (Hindutva brigate) has created a feeling of anarchy and insecurity in the society,” he said, while also accusing the Hindutva side of insulting the court by releasing the ASI report in the media.

“Hindu communal organisations have been misleading the public for many years regarding the Gyanvapi Masjid. The latest example is the ASI report which they filed in court and made available to the plaintiff and defendant only on court orders,” he said. He said that the Hindu side tried its best to create unrest in the society months before when the survey team, in its report, had described the fountain present in the reservoir as a ‘Shivling’.

The Muslim side’s response came after the Hindu plaintiffs’ lawyer Vishnu Shankar Jain claimed, citing the ASI report, that there was evidence to prove that the Gyanvapi mosque had been built after demolishing a Hindu temple in the 17th century.

Meanwhile, the powerful Hindutva group Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), occupying mosques have started their claims that several mosques in India were built over demolished Hindu temples, apparently hardening its stance in a decades-long sectarian dispute just days after a huge temple was inaugurated on the site of the razed Babri Masjid.
