Allahabad High Court Reserves Judgment on Krishna Janmasthan-Shahi Idgah Dispute

The Allahabad High Court, on Friday, reserved its judgment regarding the maintainability of several cases connected to the dispute between Krishna Janmasthan and the Shahi Idgah mosque in Mathura. The litigations primarily seek the removal of the Shahi Idgah mosque, which is situated next to the Krishna temple. Plaintiffs assert that the mosque, dating back to the era of Aurangzeb, was constructed following the demolition of the temple.

The representatives from the Muslim community have countered these claims, arguing that the cases are inadmissible under the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act of 1991, among other laws. This act specifically bans the conversion of any place of worship and strives to preserve the religious status of places as they were on August 15, 1947.

Justice Mayank Kumar Jain is presiding over the case, which has drawn considerable attention given the historical and religious significance of the sites involved.
