Do you know what the Mathura Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi dispute is?
The Hindu side alleges that the Idgah Mosque in Mathura was built by smashing the temple. It is said that the report should be prepared here along the same lines as the Supreme Court gave its verdict in the Ayodhya Ram Mandir case. If it is proven in the report that the mosque was built here after the demolition of the temples, then it should be removed from there. It is a Hindu belief that Lord Shri Krishna was born in this place. Here was the prison of King Kansa of Mathura, where Mother Devaki gave birth to the child Krishna. The controversy raised over this birthplace has now caught fire.
On the other hand, the Shahi Idgah Committee filed a petition in the High Court seeking a stay of the decision of the Mathura District Judge. In the motion of the Shahi Idgah committee, it was said that the district judge has no right to admit the motion for hearing. This issue falls under the Places of Worship Act 1991. The land has already been handed over to the Shahi Idgah committee under an agreement.
Let us tell you that up to 14 petitions are filed in the lower court of Mathura. The hearing for all of this is to be held on August 8. These petitions were filed on behalf of different organizations. At the same time, petitions were filed to release 13.37 acres of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi’s land from the Shahi Idgah Masjid.
