The Supreme Court on April 1 refused to stay an Allahabad High Court order allowing puja in a cellar in a restricted area of the Gyanvapi mosque in Varanasi. The court, however, ordered a status quo on worship by both Hindu and Muslim sides. The case will now be heard in July.

"Bearing in mind that namaaz is being offered unhindered and the offering of puja by Hindu priests, it shall be appropriate to order status quo to offer worship in above terms," it said.

A bench led by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud said the Muslims can continue to enter and offer prayers at the mosque from the northern side, while the Hindus can enter from the southern entry for the puja.
