Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Mathura: Supreme Court refuses to stop survey of Idgah complex

The Supreme Court has given its verdict in the case of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi dispute in Mathura. The SC has refused to stay the decision of Allahabad High Court. In fact, Allahabad High Court on Thursday had ordered a survey of Shahi Idgah Complex near Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple. A petition was filed in the Supreme Court demanding a stay on this.

Order was given to appoint commissioner

Earlier on Thursday, Allahabad High Court had approved the survey at the disputed site of Shahi Idgah Mosque located in Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi complex in Mathura. Also, the court had asked to appoint a commissioner on the ongoing dispute. Allahabad High Court on Thursday gave its verdict on the maintainability of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi case in Mathura and the application regarding appointing the court commissioner.

The bench of Justice Mayank Jain had approved the survey on the petition of the Hindu side. The bench was hearing a total of 18 civil suits.

Court had reserved the decision in November

In fact, after the hearing on this application on November 16, the decision was reserved. On this day, 17 out of 18 petitions regarding the disputed premises were heard. All these petitions were shifted from Mathura District Court to Allahabad High Court for hearing.

There is controversy over building a royal mosque

Keeping the mythological aspect of the temple, the party said that the grandson of Lord Shri Krishna had built the Mathura temple. The land for the temple was donated. Therefore there is no dispute over ownership of the land. There is a dispute about demolishing the temple and building a royal mosque. The land is still registered in the name of Katra Keshav Dev in the revenue records.

Petition was filed in the High Court

'Lord Shri Krishna Virajman' and 7 other people had filed a petition in Allahabad High Court through lawyers Hari Shankar Jain, Vishnu Shankar Jain, Prabhash Pandey and Devki Nandan demanding a survey. The petition claimed that the birthplace of Lord Shri Krishna is below the mosque and there are many signs which establish that the mosque was a Hindu temple.
