The judgment in favor of the reconstruction of the Ramjanmabhoomi complex has given a new impetus to the countrymen to reclaim their cultural symbols. Now a massive campaign has been started to reclaim the Qutub Minar complex in Mehrauli, Delhi, which was established by demolishing over 27 temples of Hindus and Jain community.
According to the report, “There is a demand for the restoration of the idols of the deities lying in the Qutub Minar complex in the premises of Lord Vishnu and Lord Rishabhdev in Delhi’s Saket Court and to arrange for worship-management. The issue of acceptance for consideration was held in Saket court on Tuesday in the court of civil judge Neha Sharma through video conferencing. The next hearing on the case will be on December 24 “.
Now, according to sources, there are a total of five petitioners in this case. The first petitioner is the Tirthankar lord Rishabhdev of the Jain community, on whose behalf Harishhankar Jain has sued. The second petitioner is Lord Vishnu, on whose behalf has been sued by Ranjana Agnihotri. Ranjana Ghanihotri is a lawyer who recently successfully filed a petition in the District Court of Mathura on the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi complex to remove the illegally built royal Idgah mosque and reassign the entire land to the devotees of Shri Krishna.
The Government of India and the Archaeological Survey of India have been made defendants in this case. In the same petition, it said that the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque located in the Qutub Minar complex of Delhi has been built by demolishing 27 temples of Hindus and Jains from their rubble. The reason for saying in the petition is that the buildings of the Mehrauli campus, all the buildings built in the campus have been built by demolishing the temples of Hindu and Jain communities, whose remains are still present.
According to the petitioners, the case has been filed for restoration of demolished temples under the rights of religious freedom found in Articles 25 and 26 of the Constitution. According to Jagran’s report, it was also told, “On Tuesday, while arguing for himself as petitioner, Harishankar Jain said that there is historical and credible evidence in this case. This proves that Qutubuddin Aibak to show the strength of Islam. The mosque was built by demolishing the temples. He said that the Government of India had taken over the ownership and management of the entire complex by issuing a notification in 1914 under the Ancient Monuments Preservation Act. Before doing so, the government had taken over Hindu Did not give the Jain community a hearing. “
To be fair, the battle which started with the liberation of the Sri Ram Janmabhoomi complex has now taken the form of a national campaign. Now, if later in this campaign, renovation of many pilgrimage sites like Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi, this Dhruva pillar complex of Delhi and Vishwanath Dham of Kashi, then it will not be surprising.
