Mathura case: 4 court hearings in January itself starting today | India News – Times of India


AGRA: In the first month of the new year, at least four court hearings will take place in the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah Masjid dispute. Both petitioners and respondents in different cases related to the religious sites are preparing for the hearings on January 2, 12, 20 and 23.
Last month, a civil court in Mathura ordered a survey of the Shahi Idgah mosque. On reopening of the court after the winter vacation on Monday, the Shahi Idgah masjid management committee is going to file an objection against the survey and seek a stay order on it.
Meanwhile, the petitioner from Hindu Sena claims to have compiled evidence that the mosque was constructed by Aurangzeb after encroaching on the Janmabhoomi land.
On December 8, Hindu Sena president Vishnu Gupta and vice president Surjit Yadav had filed a civil suit in Mathura seeking possession of the site where the mosque stands and the removal of the Shahi Idgah mosque. After hearing the petition, civil judge Sonika Verma ordered the ‘amin’ to conduct an inspection of the area. The court sought a survey report and maps by January 20, 2023.
