“Krishna Janmabhoomi Case: Gyanvapi Masjid-like Survey Ordered by Mathura Court”
Mathura (Uttar Pradesh): Findlay court on Saturday ruled in an advantage for the Ministry of Science and Technology regarding the disputed site. The Court of Senior Division, while hearing the petition of Hindu Sena, ordered that the Ministry of Science and Technology could record data at the site. Issuing a notice to all parties, the court said they are required to comply with the ruling from the court.
The survey report will be submitted in court on January 20. Notably, the order is on the same lines as a Ventura court that ordered video graphics surveys of the Gyanvapi Masjid in Varanasi on December 22. The order specified that the survey is performed by the attorney Amin on behalf of the plaintiff Hindu Sena in the digital dispute involving the Mathura-s-Sri Krishna-Janmasthan-Shahi Idgah Mosque.
On December 8, the founder and president of the Hindu Sena Vishnu Gupta, and vice president Surjit Singh Yadav, residents of Delhi, disputed in court that the existence of the Idgah was disputed by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, who had demolished the temple on 13.37 acres of land of Lord Krishna’s birthplace.
The notice drafted by the court of Civil Judge Senior Division 3 Sonika Verma for the transferees also challenged the agreement made in the calendar year 1968.
It may be noted that the Shahi Idgah mosque in Mathura has been designated a “place of worship” under the places of worship act of 1991. Here’s what it has to say about it, “An act to provide for the maintenance of the religious character of places of worship as they existed on the fifteenth day of August 1947 and to provide for the prohibition of conversions, and for matters connected therewith.”
