Allahabad High Court will give its verdict today i.e. on Tuesday on the demand of Archaeological Survey (ASI) of Shahi Idgah Mosque in Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi case in Mathura. Five days ago, after completing the hearing on the petition, the court had reserved its decision. A demand has been made to appoint an Advocate Commissioner for the survey.
Let us tell you that in this case, the petitioner’s lawyer Vishnu Shankar Jain says that on the lines of the Gyanvapi complex of Kashi Vishwanath temple, the Shahi Idgah built at the birthplace of Shri Krishna in Mathura should also be surveyed by ASI using scientific and modern technology. At the same time, the Mosque Arrangement Committee has expressed its objection and protested.
‘Demand from the court to conduct the survey soon’
According to the petitioner’s lawyer Hari Shankar Jain, a request has been made to the court to conduct a survey in this regard soon. It is feared that efforts are being made to erase the traces and evidence of the old temple present in the premises. A request has also been made to stop him and order to tighten security arrangements so that historical evidence is not destroyed.
‘Supreme Court had refused to intervene’
On November 16, the bench of Justice Mayank Kumar Jain of the High Court had reserved the order after hearing all the parties in detail. In this regard, 18 cases are pending at different levels in various courts of Mathura. The application has been filed on behalf of Lord Shri Krishna Virajman and Lord Bal Krishna Virajman sanctum sanctorum. On the basis of the information received from the letter of the District Judge of Mathura, the High Court had agreed to hear all the cases together. He was challenged in the Supreme Court. However, the Supreme Court had refused to intervene. Now the decision of the High Court on Tuesday is being considered very important.
‘Hindu side gave arguments in court’
According to the news agency, the petition has also demanded the removal of Shahi Idgah located next to Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple in Mathura. It has been claimed that it is built on a Hindu temple. Case number one is Lord Shri Krishna Virajman versus UP Sunni Central Board. A petition has been filed by the plaintiff party for the appointment of Advocate Commissioner for the survey of the ‘disputed’ area. Vishnu Shankar Jain, counsel for the petitioners, argued that there were several indications which suggested that the building in question was a Hindu temple. The so-called ‘Kalash’ and Shikhar are examples of Hindu architectural style.
‘Demand to appoint commission and conduct survey’
There is a lotus-shaped pillar which is a classic feature of Hindu temples and an image of Sheshnag, the lawyer claimed. Hindu religious symbols and carvings are visible at the base of the pillars in the present structure. He demanded the appointment of a commission of three advocates to submit a report in the light of the argument. The lawyer said that photographs should be taken of the entire proceedings of the commission. Videography should be done and the report should be submitted to the court. The district administration should be instructed to provide police security and maintain law and order during the proceedings of the commission.
‘Muslim side opposed the petition’
The Sunni Central Board has opposed this petition and argued that there is no need to pass any order on the application at this stage. His objection regarding the maintainability of the case is pending. However, the plaintiff’s counsel cited some legal pronouncements and said, the court can issue directions to the Commission at any stage of the litigation. After hearing both the sides, the court had reserved its decision.
