New Delhi: Jamiat-Ulama-i-Hind has called for a ‘huge gathering’ in Uttar Pradesh’s Deoband on May 28 and 29. The Muslim organisation is holding the gathering amid row involving Gyanvapi mosque and Qutub Minar.
The gathering, meant to discuss issues surrounding mosques in Gyanvapi, Mathura and monuments such as Qutub Minar, will be participated by around 5,000 Muslim organisations.
Several resolutions are likely to be adopted against the ongoing mandir-masjid debate during the gathering.
The Qutub Minar controversy erupted after claims are made that idols of Hindu deities had been found in the complex. It was also claimed that the structure was built with materials obtained after demolishing 27 Hindu-Jain temples.
Similarly it has been claimed that the Gyanvapi Mosque was built on the orders of Aurangzeb by demolishing a part of the Kashi Vishwanath Temple during his reign in the 16th century. A shivling is claimed to have been found during the survey.
