Hanuman Chalisa Row: The controversy regarding Qutub Minar is gaining momentum. On Tuesday, people associated with Hindu organizations had reached Qutub Minar while reciting Hanuman Chalisa, who have been taken into custody by the police. People have also recited Hanuman Chalisa outside Qutub Minar. United Hindu Front claims that Qutub Minar is a Vishnu pillar.
Some people carrying saffron flags were going towards Qutub Minar while reciting Hanuman Chalisa, although the police present in large numbers did not allow them to proceed. Barricades were also put up on the way to Qutub Minar. United Hindu Front’s international working president Jai Bhagwan Goyal was placed under house arrest on Tuesday morning for not allowing Hanuman Chalisa to be read at Qutub Minar.
United Hindu Front says, history bears witness that Qutub Minar is actually a Vishnu pillar. This tower was built by demolishing 27 Jain and Hindu temples. The idols of Jain and Hindu deities in this complex should be renovated and installed with respect and Hindus should be allowed to worship here.
Last month, while hearing a petition seeking removal of two Ganesh idols kept in Delhi’s Qutub Minar complex, a Delhi court had ordered status quo to be maintained in the matter. In fact, the National Monuments Authority had called the placement of two Ganesh idols in Qutub Minar as derogatory and asked the Archaeological Survey of India to remove these idols from there and take them to the National Museum. In this case, the Saket court of Delhi gave important instructions while hearing it.
However, the court had said about the stand of the ASI that in the near future, the ASI has no idea to remove the idols. On the other hand, advocate Harishankar Jain, who was arguing in the court on behalf of Sanatan Hindus, had said in the court that two idols of Lord Ganesha are lying down in the Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque premises. The religious sentiments of crores of people are being hurt due to this matter.
