Mangaluru: High court concludes inquiry into Malali Mosque controversy, verdict soon


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Feb 3: The inquiry related to the Malali Mosque controversy has concluded at the High Court. The additional civil court of Mangaluru had previously issued a verdict on the petition filed by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), accusing Asayyad Abdullahil Madani Mosque of resembling a temple. The petitioners for the mosque approached the high court, questioning the authority of the subordinate court to conduct an inquiry into the controversy. Currently, the High Court has completed the inquiry, and the verdict is pending announcement.

If the high court determines that the civil court of Mangaluru has the authority to conduct the inquiry, the case will proceed. Otherwise, there is a possibility of registering a case in the Mysuru tribunal against the high court's verdict.

The administrative committee of the mosque argued for the quashing of the VHP's petition and the allowance of mosque renovation work to continue. Furthermore, the committee contended that, according to the Wakf Act, the subordinate court does not have the authority to conduct an inquiry into the controversy. However, the court upheld the VHP's petition.

Subsequently, the VHP conducted the Tamboola Prashne ritual at the Ramanjaneya Mandir of Malali, revealing that there was once a temple on the land where the mosque now stands. Amidst this, the administrative committee of the mosque approached the high court, questioning the authority of the subordinate court to hold an inquiry into the controversy.

Chidananda Kedilaya, the lawyer for VHP, stated, “If the high court gives a verdict in favor of VHP, the inquiry will continue in the civil court of Mangaluru. The petition filed by us to inspect the remnants of the temple found in the mosque is in a status quo. We will ask the court to implement the same.”

    India is where there are crores of Temples. Some temples are even barren without people visiting there to perform any pooja. But the extremist wants to find out GOD in mosques. Don't understand why?

    It is not the question of what was there in the last 200 to 500 years but the question is what was there before 200 to 500 years. Let the place of worship go to the rightful owners.

    Whether courts give the correct verdict or not, whether court respects places of worship act or not, malali mosque is, was and will remain a mosque. Hell with all the educated people who breed hatred in their minds. They are all not for the constitution of india

    Whatever the logic, breaking something and constructing a new one in the name of religion or anything or renaming must stop in this country, in modern times. It is a matter of shame for all of us human beings.

    Human has developed so much divide on the very thought of God that it may be almost impossible to achieve complete communal harmony in this world... Humanity and morals have always taken the last possible seats or sometimes thrown out of the wagon in extreme cases of communal based conflicts... Most usually it is the jovial talking neighbours killing/harming each other given the monstrous passion to safeguard what they seemingly believe... Places of worship are of no value if there is conflict of interest amongst children of God... God never will remain in any of such disputed locations....
