New Delhi: A Delhi-based court rejected a plea seeking restoration of Hindu and Jain deities and the right to worship within the Qutub Minar complex. The court asserted that past wrongs cannot be the basis for disturbing the peace in the present and challenging future.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Jain deity Tirthankar Lord Rishabh Dev and Hindu deity Lord Vishnu. It claimed that 27 temples were partly demolished by Qutubdin Aibak, a general in the Army of Mohamad Gauri, and the Quwwat-ul-Islam Masjid was raised inside the complex by reusing the material.
While listening to the plea, The Civil Judge said, “India had a culturally rich history. It has been ruled over by numerous dynasties. No doubt it has seen challenging times. Nevertheless, history has to be accepted as a whole. Can the good be retained and bad be deleted from our history?” and later the plea was rejected.
The plea was done in order similar to Ayodhya 2019 land dispute case as the judgment in the Ayodhya land dispute case was mentioned as a case study.
