Krishna Janmabhoomi’s dispute case will be heard in a fast-track court today. A petition has been filed by advocate Mahendra Pratap Singh, who is the chairman of the Sri Krishna Janambhoomi Mukti Trust.

The court will hear the case claiming that on the stairs of the Jama Masjid in Agra, Lord Krishna’s idol is buried.

The petitioner advocate Mahendra Pratap Singh put forward his assertions that Mughal emperor Aurangazeb, after razing down the Mathura Jamansthan temple, had taken Lord Krishna’s idols from Mathura to Agra to bury them under the stairs of the Jahanara Mosque.

Advocate demands that movements on the mosque’s stairs should be stopped immediately, and the idols should be removed, and restored to the temple.

The petitioner has made the Union Secretary of India, Director General Ecological Survey of India, Superintending Archaeological Survey of India Agra, and Director Archaeological Survey of India Mathura defendants in the case.

The petition was filed by advocate Mahendra Pratap Singh in April 2021 seeking a ground radiology test by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) at the Jahanara mosque at Agra (popularly known as Jama Masjid Agra) to ascertain if the idols of Lord Krishna are buried beneath it.

The petition has been filed in a civil suit earlier filed by one Manish Yadav, who claims to be a descendent of lord Krishna and by advocate Shailender Singh on behalf of the deity Bhagwan Shrikrishna Virajmaan seeking removal of Shahi Idgah at Mathura located adjacent to the Krishna Janmabhoomi temple

The petition goes on to say that the entire issue in the suit revolves around the alleged encroachment of Aurangazeb into the Sri Krishna Janambhoomi, for proper adjudication, it is necessary to examine the Jahanara mosque for the idols
