After Gyanvapi Masjid Controversy, Plea filed in Mathura Court to seal the Shahi Idgah Mosque

Shahi Idgah Mosque

MATHURA: A plea has been filed before a local court in Mathura to seal the Shahi Idgah mosque which is the subject matter of the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi dispute. The plea was filed by Adv. Mahendra Pratap Singh and Rajendra Maheshwari have cited the order passed in the Gyanvapi dispute to claim similar relief with respect to the Shahi Idgah mosque.

The plea says, “It is submitted that in the recent survey conducted in the case of Rakhi Singh vs Government of Uttar Pradesh, the manner in which Hindu Shivling remains have been found in Gyanvapi Masjid, it has become clear that the respondents have been protesting there since the beginning. The same situation is of the litigant property of the above case of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi which is the real sanctum,”

“In this situation, if the Hindu relics are destroyed, the object of the suit and the evidence will be lost, causing irreparable loss to the plaintiffs,” the application stated.

The plea has, therefore, sought arrangements for proper security of the premises by restricting everyone’s access to the mosque.

“It is requested that in view of the above circumstances, the Senior Superintendent of Police, Mathura and District Magistrate Mathura, and CRPF Commandant should be directed to seal the property in question i.e. Shahi Idgah, and appoint security officers for the premises and direct them not to destroy the ancient Hindu religious symbols Swastika, Kamal, Om,” the plea prayed.

Earlier, the court dismissed the plea which sought the removal of the Shahi Idgah Masjid on grounds that it was built over Krishna Janmabhoomi land. The verdict is expected to be pronounced on May 19, Thursday.
