After a tweet by Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, a debate broke out on social media and the trend of  #MathuraNext and #SaveMathuraMasjid was seen on Twitter. First let’s see what was the tweet of Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya.

Tweet of Keshav Prasad Maurya

In fact, KP Maurya, while commenting about the Shahi Idgah mosque built in Mathura, had said that the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and the temple in Kashi i.e. Banaras is also going on and now it is the turn to build a temple instead of the mosque built in Mathura.

After this tweet by KP Maurya, polarization started in the social media world and some users came in his support and started running #MathuraNext, while many people started the trend of #SaveMathuraMasjid against him. Here we will analyze this trend. But first let us understand what this issue is.

What is the issue of Mathura Shahi Masjid?

According to Hindu texts, Mathura is the birthplace of Shri Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Vishnu. A section of Hindus believe that the site of the existing Idgah Shahi Masjid of Mathura was earlier a temple and that is where Lord Krishna of Hindus was born. In the 17th century, Aurangzeb demolished this temple and got a mosque built in a part of it, which is still present right next to the temple. This is also the main reason for this controversy.

Similar clams are used by a section of Hindus in India and in many mosques as well. However, on the basis of evidence and evidence, it would be difficult to say that earlier there was a temple here.

An agreement between Masjid Trust and Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sangh:

In this matter, an agreement was reached on 12 October 1968 between Shahi Idgah Masjid Trust and Shri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sangh. After this agreement some land of the mosque was vacated for the temple. During this, another case was filed in the court of the Civil Judge of Mathura. But on the basis of the agreement between Shri Krishna Janma Seva Sansthan and the Trust, it was closed. A decision of the court came in this regard on 20 July 1973. Then it was assumed forever that this dispute has now been settled forever.
