Justice Mayank Kumar Jain is hearing the applications filed by the Muslim side on the maintainability of 18 consolidated suits seeking removal of Shahi Eidgah mosque in Mathura.

In the suits, plaintiffs have mainly sought restoration of temple at the site where the Shahi Eidgah mosque exists.

The suits filed by Bhagwan Shrikrishna Virajman at Katra Keshav Dev Khewat and 17 others claim that the mosque has been built on 13.37-acre land of Katra Keshav Deo temple. Hence, they have sought restoration of temple at that place.

Today (on Monday), when Reena N Singh, the counsel for first plaintiff appeared before the court on behalf of Hindu side, a copy of the application challenging maintainability of suit was given to her. The court directed her to file reply within three days and also provide a copy thereof to the defendant – Muslim side
to enable her to file its reply by the date fixed,
so that arguments of counsel for the plaintiffs may be
heard on the next date.


Today, in reply to the arguments raised from Muslim side, it was submitted that the suit is maintainable and the plea regarding non maintainability can only be decided after leading evidences.

The counsel for defendant – Muslim side (UP Sunni Central Waqf Board and management committee of mosque) Tasneem Ahmadi submitted that she would submit her reply in rebuttal after receiving the written submission by learned counsel for the Hindu side plaintiffs

Thereafter, the court directed to list this case on April 30, 2024 at 11:30 a.m. for hearing the plaintiffs Hindu side against the application moved by the Muslim side for rejection of plaint in suits.
