On December 14, 2023, the Allahabad High Court approved the survey of the Shahi Idgah complex in Mathura, marking a significant development in the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi case. The Shahi Idgah complex court commission survey was approved by the court upon acceptance of the petition. Acharya Satyendra Das, the chief priest of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple in Ayodhya, made the following statement earlier today: “It’s good that the verdict will come.” The survey is crucial. The survey makes the facts very evident.”
It was claimed that Lord Sri Krishna’s birthplace is beneath the mosque in the application filed in the original suit that is still pending before the High Court. The allegation emphasized multiple signs corroborating the claim that the Mosque is, in fact, a Hindu temple, emphasizing the need for a commission to be appointed.
Additionally, it was claimed that the premises included an image of the Hindu deity Sheshnaag, who is said to have protected Lord Krishna during his birth, as well as a lotus-shaped pillar, which is a defining feature of Hindu temples. The application also emphasized the presence of Hindu religious symbols and inscriptions at the mosque’s pillar base.
This order was issued by a bench of Justice Mayank Kumar Jain in response to an Order 26 Rule 9 CPC application filed by the deity (Bhagwan Shri Krishna Virajman) and seven others. In the initial lawsuit that is still pending in the High Court, they were represented by attorneys Hari Shankar Jain, Vishnu Shankar Jain, Prabhash Pandey, and Devki Nandan.
