MATHURA: Yesterday, the Mathura court in its direction held that the suit to remove the Shahi Idgah Masjid, allegedly built on the land of Shrikrishna Janam Bhoomi is maintainable. The court also gave permission for a revision of the plea by the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust and other private parties.
The complaint was filed in the year 2020 by Bhagwan Shrikrishna Virajma. He pleads for the removal of the Shahi Eidgah (mosque), adjacent to the Shri Krishna temple premises in Mathura, and the transfer of 13.37-acre land to the deity.
However, in September 2020, the Mathura court rejected the suit and rejected the plaint under Order VII Rule 11 of CPC on the ground that the Plaintiffs, being the devotees/worshippers of Lord Krishna, have no right to file the suit.
When that order was challenged in revision by the petitioners, the District & Sessions Judge Mathura, Rajeev Bharti, on Thursday allowed their plea and directed the Trial court to hear both the parties and to pass appropriate order.
In a significant observation, the Court also observed that the provisions of The Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act 1991 will have no application in this dispute
