What was in the petition?
In the petition related to the transfer, linking the matter with national importance in Mathura, it was said that the case of Krishna Janmabhoomi should be heard in the High Court. The petition was filed by Lord Shri Krishna Virajman at Katra Keshav Dev Khevat Mathura through advocate Ranjana Agnihotri and seven others. Management Committee of Shahi Masjid Idgah, Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust, Katra Keshav Dev, Deeg Gate, Mathura and Shri Krishna Janm Sthan Seva Sansthan, Katra Keshav Dev etc. are the defendants in this case. ,
It has been claimed before the court that the mosque was built by demolishing Hindu temples. The petition states that the land was never given for the construction of the mosque.
Is this all controversy?
Talking about the controversy, the whole matter in Mathura is about the 13.37 acres of land of Shahi Idgah Masjid. The Hindu side says that after demolishing the temple of Keshavdev, a mound was built here. The British came to Mathura in 1803 and auctioned the land of Katra Keshavdev in 1815. The Hindu side says that this land was bought by Raja Patnimal of Banaras for Rs 1410.
He wanted to build a temple on this land. On the other hand, the Muslim side says that some part of the land which was auctioned by the British was also handed over to the Muslim. There is a dispute between the two sides regarding this land.
