  • Just days after the Mathura District Court observed that a suit to remove the Shahi Idgah Mosque, allegedly built on the land of Shri Krishna Janambhoomi was maintainable, in Thakur Keshav Dev Ji Maharaj vs Sunni Centre Wakf Board, the National Treasurer of All India Hindu Mahasabha, Dinesh Kaushik has filed an application before a local Court in Mathura seeking permission to perform purification rituals inside the Shahi Idgah Mosque claiming that the sanctum sanctorum of the Keshav Dev Temple was once located there. 
  • In the instant application, the applicant has alleged that the existence of the Idgah Mosque was hurting his sentiments, and therefore, he sought permission to enter inside the sanctum sanctorum (garbhgreh) to perform the rituals with Gangajal and Yamunajal.
  • It may also be noted that the applicant, Dinesh Kaushik has already moved an application before the Civil Judge (Senior Division), Mathura, seeking permission to consecrate Laddu Gopal inside the Idgah Mosque and to perform pooja there. 
  • Last week, an application was also moved before a local Court in Mathura with a prayer to seal the disputed Idgah Mosque complex so that the religious character of the property remains unchanged. The application also sought to increase the security around the premises of the Mosque so that any kind of movement is banned and security officers should also be appointed. This petition would most likely be heard on 1 July.
  • All that is left for us is to wait and see how this drama unfolds.
