Plea for 'Puja' at Kashi's Bindu Madhav temple filed

Varanasi: A fresh petition was filed in the court of civil judge (junior division) Aksah Verma, seeking rights to perform 'puja' at the city's Bindu Madhav temple inside Beni Madhav-ka- Dharahara alleging that it was also destroyed by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, who converted it into a mosque in the name of Dharahara. The structure is now an ASI-protected monument.
"The court has accepted our petition by allotting case no.225/2022 and fixed July 4 as the next date for hearing in this case," said Raja Anand Jyoti Singh, the lawyer of petitioners Atul Kul, Rahul Mishra, Rajendra Prasad, Shyamji Singh and Ramesh Yadav. Referring to history books and Varanasi Gazetteer, the petitioners have claimed that Bindu Madhav temple of Lord Vishnu existed at the top of the Panchaganga Ghat along river Ganga. This temple was also destroyed by Aurangzeb and a mosque came up in its place, they have claimed in the petition.
"Despite the fact that it was a protected national monument looked after by the ASI, the place was misused by some members of the Muslim community." Singh said adding, "they also bar Hindus from entering the temple to perform entering the temple to perform rituals and worship the deity. The petitioners wish to restore the temple, which was destroyed by the Mughal emperor."
"The petitioners have demanded banning the entry of opponents and ensuring that they do not stop the entry of Hindus to worship," he said. This petition will be heard on the same day when the district judge will take up the Shringar Gauri-Gyanvapi case. It's not the first time that the issue of Beni Madhav-Ka-Dharahara has come to limelight. In 2002 also, some local residents of Panchaganga Ghat had formed Beni Madhav Darahara Bachao Samiti to raise voice against the alleged misuse of the national monument by some members of the minority community.
Some saffron activists had attempted to hoist the Tricolour at this monument on the occasion of Independence Day and Republic Day between 1997 and 2014 but their bids were foiled by police.
