Court Orders Survey of Shahi Idgah Mosque In Mathura Like Gyanvapi, Hindu Side Said-There Is Temple Under Mosque

Mathura: The district court in Mathura gave a big order on Saturday in the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi and Shahi Idgah dispute of Mathura. Here too, like the Gyanvapi campus of Varanasi, there will be a survey of the mosque. 

The court passed the order on a lawsuit filed by Vishnu Gupta of the right wing outfit Hindu Sena. The survey will be similar to the one in Varanasi's Gyanvapi mosque, where a "Shivling" was said to be found during a survey.

Vishnu Gupta's petition said that the report will be presented in the court on January 20. The survey will be done from January 2.

Mosque was built at the Krishna Janmabhoomi: Petition 

Petition said the Shahi Idgah mosque was built at the Krishna Janmabhoomi on the orders of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in 1669-70 in the 13.37-acre premises of Katra Keshav Dev temple.
The Hindu side claims that the swastika symbol in the Shahi Idgah is the sanctum sanctorum of the deity under the mosque, symbolizing it being a temple. The petition said that there is evidence of Hindu architecture in Shahi Idgah. These will come to the fore after the scientific survey.

Hindu side said- Aurangzeb broke the temple and made Idgah

It was said in the petition that Aurangzeb had built the Idgah mosque by demolishing the temple on 13.37 acres of land of Shri Krishna's birthplace. The petition presented before the court the entire history from the birth of Lord Krishna till the construction of the temple. He also called for the abolition of the 1968 agreement between Sri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sangh vs Shahi Idgah, calling it illegal.
