The videography survey of Gyanvapi mosque in Varanasi by a court-appointed panel concluded on the third day on Monday. Lawyer Vishnu Jain says that a Shivling was found inside the pond. He said he would go to civil court to seek its protection.
Shivling found inside the mosque
The lawyer representing the Hindu women has claimed that a shiva linga has been found in the pond inside the mosque complex. “The pond was used for ablution (wuzu) purification rituals,” lawyer Subhash Nandan Chaturvedi said, adding that water was drained from the pond and a shiva linga was allegedly found.
According to reports, the Shivling is 12 feet by 8 inches in diameter. An advocate from the Hindu side, Madan Mohan Yadav, claimed that the Shivling is Nandi faced.

A Varanasi court has now demanded an immediate sealing off of the pond after an appeal from the petitioners. It directed the Varanasi District Magistrate to ensure that nobody is allowed to enter the area.
On the western wall of the Gyanvapi complex, the remains of the Hindu temple demolition are visible and the pictures which are the biggest proof will be surveyed. For this, the fourth lock was opened today, while the first three rooms were opened during the survey on Saturday.
The controversy around Gyanvapi Mosque?
Gyanvapi Mosque, adjacent to the Kashi Vishwanath Temple in Varanasi, is currently facing a legal battle. A court in Varanasi has directed the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to probe the structure of the Gyanvapi Masjid.
Several pleas have been filed before the Supreme Court, Allahabad High Court, and Varanasi Court alleging that the mosque was built by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb by destroying the Kashi Vishwanath Temple in the 16th century.
The petitioners stated that the Mosque was constructed on the orders of Aurangzeb by destroying a part of the Kashi Vishwanath Temple during his reign in the 16th century.

So holy shivling was being insulted by cleaning dirty legs in the same water(WUZU) as the Shivling? Can anyone defending Gyanwapi as Masjid tolerate this behaviour with their own god? This is pure blasphemy. #BabaMilGaye #GyanvapiEvidence #ज्ञानवापी_मंदिर https://t.co/PC5BBl7lDS

The resilience and patience shown by Hindus all these years has no parallel in the entire world.
First with Ram Janmbhumi and now Kashi Vishwanath, they waited for democracy to takes its course.
Yet they are demonised. Such a shame #BabaMilGaye
