Netaji’s kin files plea to be party in Mathura mosque land suit | India News – Times of India



AGRA: Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s great grandniece and national president of Hindu Mahasabha Rajyashree Chaudhuri has also filed a petition to become a party to the case filed earlier for the removal of a 17th century mosque from near the Krishna Janmasthan temple in Mathura.
Talking to media persons in Mathura on Thursday, Chaudhuri said her organisation will back the petitioner in favour of the Hindu community. “Not only Krishna Janmasthan, Kashi Vishwanath, Tejo Mahal (sic) are also on our agenda,” she said, claiming that the Eidgah adjacent to “Krishna’s birthplace is illegal”.
Rajyashree, whose great-grandmother was one of Netaji’s six sisters, took over as the national head of Hindu Mahasabha in 2018 — only second Bengali to lead the right-wing organisation after Jana Sangh founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee, who was its president between 1943 and 1946.
In October, a Mathura court admitted the plea seeking removal of the mosque situated adjacent to a Krishna temple.
The suit, filed by Lucknow resident Ranjana Agnihotri and five others, including a Delhi resident, claims that the mosque is exactly where Krishna was born and they have sought the ownership of the entire 13.37-acre land. It also sought cancellation of a compromise decree between the governing body of the temple complex and the management trust of the mosque in 1968.
