Dinesh Sharma, the national treasurer of the Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha (ABHM), has moved an application before a Mathura district court seeking a survey of the Meena Masjid, which he alleges was built after encroaching upon land owned by the Krishna Janmabhoomi.

Times of India reports that last month, Sharma had filed a suit seeking removal of the Meena Masjid which he claims was built in part from the Thakur Keshav Dev Ji temple located on the east side of the Krishna Janmabhoomi premises. That case is registered before the court of Civil Judge (Senior Division) Jyoti Singh. The president/chairman of the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board (Lucknow) and the secretary of the Meena Masjid management committee are respondents in the case. It will be heard next on October 26.

Sharma told the publication, “We have sought removal of the construction in the name of Meena Masjid near Vrindavan Railway Line at Deeg Gate on land owned by the deity.” He alleges that a survey of the land is required as illegal constructions are being carried out on it, and says he will present evidence at the next hearing.

Readers would recall that in 2021 the same Dinesh Sharma had also filed a suit (174 of 2021) seeking removal of the Shahi Eidgah, that stands adjacent to the Krishna Janmabhoomi, and that case is still pending.

At present, nearly a dozen related petitions are being heard by the Mathura Civil Court. Petitioners apart from Sharma include - the deity (represented by next friend Ranjana Agnihotri), Manish Yadav, and advocates Mahendra Pratap Singh and Rajendra Maheshwari Then there are other petitioners such as Jitendra Singh Visen of the Vishwa Vaidik Sanatan Sangh (VVSS), Anil Kumar Tripathi, Pawan Kumar Shastri, Gopal Giri and Pankaj Singh.
