Shivling found in Gyanvapi one of 12 jyotirlings, will prove, says VHP chief
Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) chief Alok Kumar on Friday agreed with the Supreme Court’s order in the Gyanvapi mosque case and claimed that the Hindu side will be able to prove that the Shivling found is one of the 12 jyotirlingas.
“We agree with the Supreme Court that this matter is complicated and this requires a serious and experienced judge. Court has said the district court will look into it. We agree with the Supreme Court,” he said.
The VHP chief said that they will be able to prove that ‘Shivling’ found inside the Gyanvapi mosque is one of the jyotirlingas.
“We believe that it is Shivling because Nandi is looking at it and the location suggests that it is one of the original jyotiling, out of the 12 Jyotirlingas and the waju khana of the Gyanvapi Mosque complex has been built over the ruins of the desecrated old temple invaded by the Mughals. We will be able to prove it to the court and the Supreme Court will decide this case. The judge has been authorized to take the local commissioner’s report and we will prove it is the original Jyotirlinga,” he said.
