Hindu deities Bhagwan Shrikrishna Virajman and Asthan Shri Krishna Janmbhoomi, through next of friends, have moved an appeal before the Mathura District Court challenging the dismissal of the suit moved to remove the Shahi Idgah Masjid at Mathura on grounds that it was built over Krishna Janmabhoomi land.
The plea has been moved for the deities by next friends Ranjana Agnihotri, Pravesh Kumar, Rajesh Mani Tripathi, Karunesh Kumar Shukla, Shivaji Singh and Tripurari Tiwari.
The appellants assert that as devotees of Lord Krishna, they have a right to move the suit in view of their fundamental religious rights under Article 25 of the Constitution of India. The matter is expected to be taken up for hearing this afternoon.
