The Supreme Court on Friday heard the Gyanvapi Mosque case again a day after it asked the Varanasi court not to proceed with hearing the case until it takes up the matter.

During the hearing, the Supreme Court suggested that it could continue the interim order to keep the Shivling area safe in the mosque but without hampering prayers by Muslims.

Saying that these are complex social problems and no solution by the human being can be perfect, the Supreme Court said its order is to maintain a certain degree of peace and calm and the interim orders calms some frayed nerves with some healing touch.

The top court also said once the Commission's report is there, there cannot be selective leaks.

"Do not leaks thing to the press, only judge opens the report," the apex court added.

However, the Supreme Court ordered the transfer of Gyanvapi mosque case to District Judge, Varanasi.

The apex court said the senior and experienced judicial officer of UP Judicial services will hear the case.
