Qutub Minar Masjid News: Hearing on Qutub Minar in Delhi's Saket court postponed
The hearing on the petition by Hindu outfits seeking the right to worship in the mosque situated inside the Qutub Minar complex in Delhi has been postponed.
Qutub Minar Masjid News: The hearing on the petition by Hindu outfits seeking the right to worship in the mosque situated inside the Qutub Minar complex in Delhi has been postponed.
The hearing was originally scheduled to be held in the Saket court today but will now be held on May 24.
According to reports, Vishnu Shankar, the lawyer associated with the case, is not present in Delhi, due to which the hearing has been postponed till May 24.
It has been claimed in the petition that there are the remains of 27 Hindu and Jain temples inside the Qutub Minar premises. In this case, one side argues that the mosque built inside the Qutub Minar has been built after destroying 27 temples of Hindu and Jain religion, in such a way that idols should be installed again and allowed to recite worship.
Earlier on May 10, Hindu organizations had staged a demonstration in front of the Qutub Minar and demanded the right to worship inside the premises.
Bhagwan Goel, International Working President of the United Hindu Front, had claimed that the Qutub Minar is a 'Vishnu Stambh' which was built by the 'Great King Vikramaditya'.
Qutub Minar is 73 meters high
"Qutub-ud-din Aibak tried to take credit for this. There were 27 temples in the complex and they were destroyed by Aibak. Evidence of all this is available because people can see the idols of Hindu deities kept in the Qutub Minar complex. We demand that Qutub Minar should be named Vishnu Stambha," Bhagwan Goel had said.
Last month, Delhi's Saket court heard a petition seeking removal of two Ganesh idols from Qutub Minar. The court had said that the concern of the appellant cannot be ignored. The court asked the defendants to maintain status quo in the matter till the next hearing.
