Krishna Janmabhoomi case: Allahabad HC reserves order on plea filed by Muslim side seeking an adjournment of survey | India News


In the ongoing Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi case, the Allahabad High Court on Monday reserved the order on the plea filed by the Muslim side seeking an adjournment of the scientific survey on the Shahi Idgah complex in Mathura. The order is likely to be pronounced by the Allahabad HC at 4 PM today.
The survey will be conducted in the same manner in which it has been done at the Gyanvapi Temple in Varanasi.
Last week, the court approved the carrying out of a scientific survey on the Shahi Idgah complex in Mathura. The order came on an application seeking a survey of the Masjid, contending that the land was part of the Shri Krishnajanmbhoomi and as such a place of worship for the Hindus. It has also been claimed that Shahi Eidgah Mosque was built on temple land during the reign of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.
On September 24, 2020, Lucknow resident and advocate Ranjana Agnihotri and six others filed a plea to remove the 17th century Shahi Idgah mosque from the complex it shares with the Katra Keshav Dev Temple, close to the spot known as ‘Krishna Janmabhoomi’.The petitioners filed the pleas under “next friend of Bhagwan Sri Krishna Virajman”.
The plea contended that the Masjid is constructed on a part of 13.37-acre land belonging to the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust.The suit was rejected on September 30, 2020, as non-admissible.
The ruling was later overturned by the district court.
