Hindus, Muslims swap land for Kashi Vishwanath Dham​

VARANASI: Just before the beginning of the Hindu holy month of Shravan, the Muslim community has announced a gift for Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple Trust (SKVTT) in the form of a piece of land measuring 1,700 square-feet, adjacent to the Gyanvapi mosque for the development of Kashi Vishwanath Dham (corridor). In return gift, the temple administration has given a piece of land measuring 1,000 square-feet to the Muslim community.

It took almost two years to make the exchange deal,” said SM Yasin of Anjuman Intezamiya Masajid, adding that the permission of Sunni Central Waqf Board and opinion of all clerics was taken before the deal.
“All agreed, and the deal was finalized amicably. There was no pressure from the government side,” Yasin told TOI on Friday.

"The existing dispute regarding ASI survey in the court has nothing to do with this deal. We hope that it will give a message of communal harmony,” he added.
