To seek the ownership of Krishna Janmabhoomi's land of 13.37 acres in Mathura and elimination of Shahi Idgah Masjid, a Mathura court has received a civil suit.
On account of Srikrishna Virajman, petitioner Vinit Jain filed the suit and it was stated that “every inch of the land of Katra Keshav Dev is sacred for the devotees of Lord Shree Krishna and Hindu community," according to the reports.
The petitioners said the entire area is known as ‘Katra Keshav Dev’, a place where Lord Krishna was born in the karagar of King Kans. Also, the petition has added, the place of birth currently lies beneath the existing structure.
Aurangzeb, the Mughal emperor has been blamed by the petitioner for razing Mathura's Krishna temple. In the plea, it has been written, “Aurangzeb ruled over the country he being a staunch follower of Islam issued orders for demolition of the temple standing at the birthplace of Lord Shree Krishna at Katra Keshav Dev in 1669-70.”
Petitioners have been represented by advocates Vishnu Shankar Jain and Hari Shankar Jain. While speaking to the Times of India advocates said, "this suit is being filed for removal of encroachment and superstructure illegally raised by Committee of Management of alleged Trust Masjid Idgah with the consent of Sunni Central Board of Waqf on land Khewat No. 255 at Katra Keshav Dev, city Mathura belonging to deity Shree Krishna Virajman."
After the verdict of the Supreme Court on the case of Ram Janmabhoomi, a demand to reclaim Mathura and Kashi has grown among Hindus.
Aurangzeb had demolished Mathura's Krishna Janmabhoomi temple in 1669 to build Shahi Idgah Mosque. He had also built the Gyanvapi Mosque on the plinth of Vishwanath temple, Kashi. The Gyanvapi Mosque's walls have the residues of the temple.
On the footprints of Ram Mandir's trust, to free Mathura's temple Hindu Sadhus formed ‘Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Nirman Nyas’ in August.
A new trust comprises 80 saints belonging to 14 states including Vrindavan's 11 saints.
A signature campaign will soon be launched to connect other saints and seers for the ‘liberation’ of the Krishna Janmabhoomi, said the Hindu Sadhus.
PV Narasimha Rao government had passed the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act in 1991. The Act denies the conversion of worship places like temples, mosques, and churches into a worship place of a different religion. This act has become a roadblock for Hindu Sadhus.
