Krishna Janmabhoomi case: court allows lawsuit that seeks removal of Idgah mosque

According to the law, deities have the right to own land

The district court in Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura on Thursday allowed a plea seeking ownership of the land in which the Shahi Idgah Mosque is built.

The Idgah is next to the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi Sthal, which believed to be the deity’s birthplace.

The pleas were filed by Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust and other private parties. The verdict essentially means that the civil suit will now be heard by a lower court.

The dispute involves ownership of 13.37 acres of land which, the Hindu petitioners claim belongs to the deity Lord Shri Krishna Virajman. According to the law, deities have the right to own land.

Apart from looking into revenue records, the court will also have to decide the validity of a ‘compromise agreement’ between the temple management authority and the Idgah trust which was done in 1968 and in which the temple authority conceded the contentious portion of land to the Idgah.

Now, private parties and the temple trust allege that the compromise is not valid because the trust holds the land and the temple management authority had no power to enter into a compromise.
