The Supreme Court on Monday extended the interim order on stay on Allahabad HC order appointing Commission for the Shahi Eidgah Mosque in connection with Mathura's Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah Masjid dispute till next date of hearing. A bench of justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta adjourned the hearing for April and directed the parties concerned to complete pleadings and file written submissions.


The court said that the interim order on stay on Allahabad HC order appointing a Commission for the Shahi Eidgah Mosque in connection with Mathura's Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah Masjid dispute will continue till the next date of hearing. In the last hearing, the top court had stayed the Allahabad High Court order appointing the Commission for the Shahi Eidgah Mosque in connection with Mathura's Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah Masjid dispute
The order came on a plea filed by the Committee of Management Trust Shahi Masjid Idgah challenging the Allahabad High Court order for the appointment of a Commission for the Shahi Eidgah Mosque.

The court had said that proceedings before the trial court can be continued but the commission cannot be executed till the next date of hearings.
The Committee of Management Trust Shahi Masjid Idgah has filed an appeal in the Supreme Court challenging the Allahabad High Court order for the appointment of a Commission for the Shahi Eidgah Mosque.
The Special Leave Petition (SLP) by the mosque committee challenged the order dated December 14 passed by the High Court of Judicature at Allahabad allowing an Application for the appointment of a Commission for the Shahi Eidgah Mosque where prayers are being regularly offered by the Muslim community from time immemorial.

"The High Court has allowed the Application for appointment of a Commission without considering the objections of the Petitioner herein and without considering the fact that the very existence of the Suit has been questioned by the Petitioner herein, whose Application under Order VII Rule 11 of the CPC for rejection of the Plaint has been kept pending without any decision," the petition copy said.


Committee of Management Trust Shahi Masjid Idgah was represented by advocates Tasneem Ahmadi, Mehmood Pracha and RHA Sikander.
The Supreme Court is also dealing with various matters relating to Mathura's Krishna Janambhoomi land dispute.
