‘Idols of Krishna Janmbhoomi lie buried beneath Agra’s Jama Masjid’, PIL filed in Mathura court seeking ground radiology survey by ASI

The PIL has been filed based on an assertion that Mughal emperor Aurangazeb, after razing down the Mathura Jamansthan temple, had taken the Lord Krishna idols from Mathura to Agra to bury them under Jama Masjid.

Days after a Mathura court admitted a plea to remove Shahi Idgah Mosque from Krishna Janmbhoomi, a PIL has been filed claiming that the idols of the Shri Krishna Janmbhoomi temple in Mathura have been lying buried beneath Jahanara mosque in Agra, popularly known as Jama Masjid.

The PIL has been filed by one advocate Shailendra Singh, based on an assertion that Mughal emperor Aurangazeb, after razing down the Mathura Jamansthan temple, had taken the Lord Krishna idols from Mathura to Agra to bury them under Jama Masjid.

Advocate Shailendra Singh, who has filed the PIL on behalf of 5 petitioners from Lucknow, therefore, requested the court to grant permission for a ground radiology test by ASI at Agra’s Jama Masjid, to ascertain if Lord Krishna’s idols are buried beneath it.

Quoting from ‘Anecdotes of Aurangzeb And Historical Essays By Jadunath Sarkar, Published By M. C. Sarkar & Sons. 902-a Harrison Road, Calcutta 1917. at Page 11-12’ the PIL stated: “The grandest shrine of Mathura, Kesav Rai’s temple, built at a cost of 33 lakhs of rupees by the Bundela Rajah Birsingh Dev, was razed to the ground in January 1670, and a mosque built on its site. The idols were brought to Agra and buried under the steps of Jahanara’s mosque that they might be constantly trodden on by the Muslims going in to pray.”
