Uttar PradeshPlea to remove Mughal-era Meena Masjid filed in Mathura court


Mathura: At a time when the Varanasi district court is hearing the Gyanvapi Mosque case, a plea to remove the Mughal-era Meena Masjid in Mathura has been filed at a local court. National treasurer of Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (ABHM) Dinesh Sharma filed the case, claiming that the mosque was built on a part of the Thakur Keshav Dev Ji temple. It lies on the eastern part of the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple, the petition said.

Sharma has filed the petition as devotee of Lord Krishna in the court of civil judge Mathura, Jyoti Singh. Besides there are several petitions in different courts of Mathura. Those petitions seek removal of Shahi Masjid Idgah from the birth place of Lord Krishna within the main premises of the temple. Sharma said that Keshav Ji Maharaj is the petitioner number one in the case.

The petitioners appearing on behalf of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi have challenged the settlement that was signed between Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Seva Trust and Shahi Masjid Idgah on October 12, 1968. The petitioners said that Mughal emperor Aurangzeb built the mosque on the birthplace of Lord Krishna. Nevertheless, the members of Shahi Masjid Idgah committee were opposed to these petitions and stuck to the settlement of 1968.
