The Idgah is adjacent to the Sri Krishna Janambhoomi Sthal, a place where lord Krishna was believed to have been born.
Mathura: Amid ongoing controversy over survey of Gyanvapi masjid, a Mathura court on Thursday agreed to hear a petition filed by the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust and some private parties seeking removal of Shahi Idgah. The trust has claimed that the Idgah has been built on a piece of land measuring 13.37 acreas in area which belongs to the deity Lord Shri Krishna Virajman.
As per the ruling of district session judge, the civil suit will now be heard by a lower court. The Idgah is adjacent to the Sri Krishna Janambhoomi Sthal, a place where lord Krishna was believed to have been born.
AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, however, criticised the Mathura Court’s ruling as it allowed petition seeking removal of Shahi Idgah. Owaisi called it violation of Supreme Court’s verdict. “The ruling is violation of the Places of Worship Act, 1991 itself. Mathura District Court saying the suit is maintainable is a violation of SC verdict, and against the Parliament Act,” said Owaisi.
“#Mathura’s Sri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sangh & Shahi Idgah Trust had resolved their issues by an agreement in 1968. Places of Worship Act 1991 prohibits such cases from even going to court. But law doesn’t matter anymore. Robbing Muslims of their dignity is the only goal now.” Owaisi tweeted.
“Whether it is #Gyanvapi or #MAthura, the Sangh Parivar wants to create an atmosphere of hatred, to create euphoria among our Hindu brethren for Muslims. The Sangh wants to push the country into a dark phase.” Said Owaisi in another tweet.
