Mathura’s Shahi Idgah cases to be heard Jan-end

Mathura (Uttar Pradesh), Jan 19 (IANS) Hearing on two petitions related to seeking removal of the Shahi Idgah, situated adjacent to the Shri Krishna Temple in Mathura, will now take place on January 28 and 29.

While hearing the objection petition filed by the management trust committee of Shahi Idgah to the admission of an “appeal” against the dismissal of a civil suit seeking ownership of 13.37 acre Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi land and removal of Shahi Idgah mosque, the district judge, on Monday, directed for the modification of the petition and its registration as a “revision” petition.

The appeal was filed by Lucknow-based advocate Ranjana Agnihotri and seven others.

While raising objections, Shahi Idgah committee argued that the civil suit was registered as a “miscellaneous” petition, which was dismissed by the court. As there is no scope of filing appeal in such petitions, hence, it should be dismissed.

In another petition filed by Hindu army chief Manish Yadav, seeking removal of the Shahi Idgah mosque, the judge has adjourned the case till January 29.
