The Board will seek the opinions of the Centre and the political parties over the Places of Worship Act, 1991.

“The Board will publish pamphlets and books to apprise the public about the half-baked information being made available to the public,” said the sources.

Meanwhile, Hindu petitioner in the case, Sohan Lal Arya on Monday claimed that the committee found a Shivling at the complex. Arya, who accompanied the court commission for the mosque survey, said that they have found “conclusive evidence”.

The Supreme Court heard the plea seeking a stay on the survey of the Gyanvapi Mosque complex in Varanasi on Tuesday and observed that till the next date of hearing Varanasi District Majistrate will ensure that the Shivling area will be protected but it will not impede access of Muslims to the mosque for prayers.
