Survey of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah to be conducted, Allahabad High Court accepts petition of Hindu side, rejects argument of Idgah Waqf Board

The demand of the Hindu side for a survey of disputed premises of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah complex at the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi complex in Mathura has been accepted by the Allahabad High Court, marking a significant victory for the Hindu party. This decision follows a similar survey conducted in the Gyanvapi case in Varanasi. The court has rejected argument of Idgah Waqf Board in this regard.

The earlier hearing for this case took place on November 16, during which a petition was submitted on behalf of the Hindu side to appoint a court commissioner for the survey. In the previous hearing, the judge had reserved the decision.

During the Thursday hearing, the High Court granted permission to appoint a Court Commissioner. The court will now determine the commissioner's name and set a timeframe for the survey. A photo-video survey of the disputed site will be carried out, and the resulting report will be presented in court.

The next hearing on December 18 will address the selection of the court commissioner and set a deadline for submitting the survey report.

According to Vishnu Shankar Jain, the lawyer representing the Hindu party, the court's decision was in favor of their application, and the specifics of the survey will be determined on December 18. Jain stated that the court acknowledged his contention that the Shahi Idgah Masjid contains numerous indications and symbols of a Hindu temple, and in order to ascertain the accurate situation, the involvement of an advocate commissioner is essential. Describing it as a landmark judgment, Jain highlighted the significance of the court's decision.
