An application has been filed before a Mathura Court by Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Mukti Andolan Samiti, offering the Muslim parties that manage the mosque a larger piece of land if they are willing to demolish the controversial Shahi Idgah Masjid near the Krishna Janmabhoomi in Mathura.
According to the reports, the Hindu parties, represented by Shri Krishna trust and Shri Krishna Janmbhoomi Mukti Andolan Samiti, have put forward a peace proposal to offer a much larger piece of land to the Shahi Idgah Masjid management in Mathura if they accept the offer of shifting the mosque to another place.
The application was filed through advocate Mahendra Pratap Singh before the Civil Judge, Senior Division, Mathura. The plea informed the court that the Idgah masjid was built by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb with the stones of the temple after demolishing the temple. “There are many stones in which Hindu scriptures are visible and the Mosque was built after destroying the temple on the orders of Aurangzeb,” the plea read.
Petitioners cite Ram Mandir Judgement on Ayodhya
The petitioners cited the Supreme Court judgement in Ayodhya Shri Ram Janmabhoomi case, in which the apex court had granted the land rights to Ram Lalla and had offered a large piece of land to Muslims to construct a mosque. The plea also had alleged that the Committee of Management of Trust Masjid Idgah, without any authority of law and in utter violation of decree of a court, put up a super-structure and had taken over the land of Katra Keshav Dev belonging to Shri Krishna Janmstan Trust and the Deity. Following the Supreme Court verdict on the Ram Janmbhoomi case, there has been a growing demand in India to reclaim Kashi and Mathura, along with Ayodhya. Taking back the disputed sites of Kasi Vishwanath temple and Krishna Janmbhoomi temple at Mathura has now become a priority for various Hindu groups in the country.
