The Supreme Court on Monday (January 29) extended the stay on the Allahabad High Court order appointing a Commission for the Shahi Eidgah Mosque in connection with Mathura’s Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah Masjid dispute until April 2024. The interim stay on the appointment of a court commissioner to inspect the mosque premises has been extended until the next date of hearing.

The bench, led by Justice Sanjeev Khanna, adjourned the case while hearing petitions challenging the Allahabad High Court's decision to transfer all pending suits related to the Krishna Janambhoomi-Shahi Idgah dispute from the Mathura Court to itself.

The Supreme Court had earlier stayed the execution of the Allahabad High Court order on the Shahi Idgah survey in the Krishna Janmabhoomi case on January 16. The Allahabad High Court had transferred all suits related to the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah Masjid dispute to itself in May 2023.

Several separate petitions have been filed in lower courts in Mathura. The petitions have sought removal of the Shahi Idgah Masjid from the 13.37-acre complex it shares with the Katra Keshav Dev temple.

The petitioners moved the top court against Allahabad HC move and argued that the high court transferred all suits to itself, even though no transfer applications were filed for all those petitions.
