Asaduddin Owaisi Criticizes Allahabad High Court’s Decision on Mathura’s Shahi Idgah

Asaduddin Owaisi, the leader of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), vehemently criticized the recent ruling by the Allahabad High Court permitting a survey of Mathura’s Shahi Idgah complex adjacent to the Krishna Janmabhoomi temple. Owaisi condemned the decision, stating that it contravenes the Places of Worship Act and serves to bolster the “sangh parivar’s mischiefs.”

In a detailed post on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), the Hyderabad MP expressed his discontent, highlighting, “The Allahabad HC’s decision allowing the survey of Mathura’s Shahi Idgah masjid goes against the Places of Worship Act, despite it prohibiting such litigation. This ruling, akin to the Babri Masjid’s judgment, will embolden the mischiefs of the Sangh Parivar.”

Accompanying his post, Owaisi shared the agreement on the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi case from October 1968, accusing a new faction of instigating disputes settled long ago. He emphasized that the Mathura dispute had been resolved amicably decades ago through an agreement between the Masjid Committee and the temple’s Trust, before a court of law.

Asserting the sanctity of the Places of Worship Act, Owaisi criticized the alleged disregard for both the law and the judicial process by this new faction. He questioned the urgency behind ordering a survey when the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear the matter on January 9.

Dismissing the notion of “give and take” in the face of constant targeting of Muslims, Owaisi cautioned against diminishing the law’s significance. He accused certain entities of prioritizing the erosion of Muslim dignity over all else.

The recent decision by the Allahabad High Court paves the way for a plea seeking a court-monitored survey of the Shahi Idgah premises, with the case set to be heard further on December 18. Previously, on November 16, the court had reserved its order on the Hindu side’s application seeking the appointment of a court-monitored advocate commissioner. This ruling followed the court’s decision on May 26 to consolidate all suits related to the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Eidgah Mosque dispute, transferring them from the Mathura Court to itself.
