Petitioners in the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi case have offered the opposing parties representing Muslims one-and-a-half times more land and urged them to give up their claim on the land. The offered land is located some distance away from the Braj area where the present temple and mosque located. A suit was filed in 2020 on behalf of deity Lord Krishna seeking removal of the Shahi Eidgah (mosque), adjacent to the temple complex in Mathura.
According to the petitioners, this offer has been made by quoting the 2019 judgment by the Supreme Court in the Ram Janmabhoomi case, where the court ruled in favour of the Hindu parties but asked the Government to provide land to the Muslims for a mosque.
Mahendra Pratap Singh, an advocate and President of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Mukti Andolan Samiti, claimed that his organisation will make the land available to Muslims, if they accept the offer, Hindustan Times reported.
”The Supreme Court, in its judgment in Ram Janmabhoomi case of Ayodhya, stated that Babri structure was built after bringing down Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya over the same land. The court passed the order holding the disputed place as that owned by ‘Ramlala’ and in lieu of it, Muslims were provided land to have their place of worship across river Saryu in Ayodhya,” stated Singh.
“We have made an offer to the opposite parties (UP Sunni Central Waqf Board and management committee of Shahi Masjid Eidgah) to give up their claim on the land originally belonging to the temple where the Eidgah was built. And in lieu thereof, they (Muslims) would be offered land more than one and a half times anywhere beyond 84 kos of Braj,” it added.
