In November last year, the Supreme Court's decision regarding Ram Janmabhumi Temple came. This decision has not been completed here for a year and now the issue of Krishna Janmabhoomi is being raised.
AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has also raised a question about when the dispute between Sri Krishna Krishna Janmasthaan Seva Sangh and the Eidgah Masjid Trust was resolved in 1968. Had gone, then why this dispute again? In Asl, a claim related to Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi has been filed in Mathura Civil Court, due to which the dispute is again in the headlines.
In this complaint filed in the Civil Court of Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, Advocate Vishnu Jain has said that an entire land is a sacred place for the devotees of Lord Krishna. In the complaint, the entire 13.37-acre land of Krishna's birthplace has been rebutted claiming that the agreement was reached in 1968, which cannot be valid and the royal Idgah mosque should be removed from here.
What is the basis of this claim?
It has been claimed that Shri Krishna was born in the prison of Kansa and the entire area is known as 'Katra Keshav Dev'. The real place of Krishna's birth is where the mosque is built by the management committee of Idgah Trust. The claim also states that the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb destroyed the Krishna temple in Mathura. Where the Keshava Dev Temple was, the mosque built there is known as Idgah.
What does this libel want?
In this complaint, there has been a demand that the construction committee of the Trust Mosque Idgah should be removed. With the consent of the Sunni Central Board, the committee's constructions are said to be encroachments, claiming that Katra Keshav Dev Basti is complete 'Sri Krishna Virajaman'.
Along with the demand to remove these constructions as illegal, in this complaint, there is also a demand that the Sunni Waqf Board, Trust Idgah, and all the personnel associated with it should be removed from here.
This complaint has been filed on behalf of Lord Krishna and his devotees. In this, under Article 25 of the Constitution, the right to worship has been given.
Owaisi, who has been a four-time MP, tweeted in this case that the 'Place of Worship Act 1991 prohibits the conversion of a place of worship. The Ministry of Home Affairs is responsible for implementing this Act and protecting it, so how will the Ministry react in the court? When Shahi Idgah Trust and Sri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sangh settled this dispute in 1968, why is it being raised again? '
It is important to understand the history of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi so that this entire matter can be cleared. Do not talk too old, understand from 1804, when Mathura came under British control.
The East India Company auctioned the land of Katra, which was bought by Raja Patnimal of Benares in 1815. The king wanted to build a temple here, but it could not happen. This land remained with his heirs.
A dispute arose regarding this land in front of Raja's heir Raj Krishna Das. The Muslims of Mathura fought the case on this 13.37-acre land, but the Allahabad High Court in 1935 ruled in favor of Raj Krishna Das. In 1944, Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya took this land from Das for Rs 13000, in which Jugalkishore Birla gave financial help. After Malaviya's death, Birla formed the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust here, which was later known as Sri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sansthan.
Birla started the construction of the temple complex on this land in 1953 in collaboration with Jayadayal Dalmia. This construction was completed in February 1982. The third generation Anurag is a joint trustee of the Dalmia Trust. Another industrialist Ramnath Goenka was also financially supported in this temple complex.
In the year 1958, Srikrishna Janmasthana Seva Sangh started many decisions despite not owning the land. After filing a civil case for control of the entire land in 1964, this institution itself had entered into an agreement with the Muslim side. Under the agreement, both the parties hand over some parts of their land to each other. Now the place where the mosque is in the name of the birthplace trust.
After this, another suit was filed in the Civil Court of Mathura, which was closed after the agreement between Sri Krishna Janma Seva Sansthan and Trust. According to the news, on 20 July 1973, the court gave this decision. Now, in the latest complaint, there is a demand for the cancellation of the decision of the court challenging it and also that the disputed place should be considered as the birthplace of Bal Srikrishna.
After the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992, Manohar Lal Sharma, a resident of Vrindavan, had filed a petition in the Mathura district court challenging the 1968 agreement and sought to invalidate the Religious Place of Worship Act 1991, under which after 15 August 1947 There are provisions to keep worship places in status quo.
After the Babri demolition, it was speculated that the next target of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and institutions with the Hindutva agenda could be the Idgah Mosque, which is located near Krishna birthplace. In 1992, the VHP's slogan of 'Ayodhya, Mathura, Kashi' was seen under a scheme. From time to time, this site of Mathura has remained in the discussions of Hindutva.
