Mathura Court admitted the plea seeking the removal of the Shahi Eidgah Mosque adjacent to the Krishna Janmabhumi. The plea was filed against an order that dismissed the petition seeking the removal of the mosque. A massive faceoff erupts as the case reaches the legal doorsteps again. The president of the Eidgah mosque says that he has lived in the city of Mathura for more than 50 years, and never there has been a conflict amongst the two groups. according to him, the issue has not been raised by the people of Mathura, but people residing outside the city of Mathura. On the other hand, the Krishna Janmasthan Sanstha member says that the right belongs to Krishna Janmabhumi and there is no dispute about the issue.
Times Now's Pranesh is joined by author Shantanu Gupta, Vishnu Jain, Atiq ur Rahman and Tauseef Rahman. Vishnu Jain states that the entire property belongs to Krishna Janmabhumi trust and not the Sangh and the compromise was done by the Sangh. He further adds that he has been targeted on the pretext of creating disharmony. Scholar Atiq ur Rahman refutes this argument by asking Vishnu Jain, as to how will he discard the Parliament Act of 1991, which states to keep the religious places as they were on the Independence Day.
