New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear on Monday the matter of demolition of Sant Ravidas temple. In fact, former President of Haryana Congress Ashok Tanwar and former Union Minister Pradeep Jain have filed a petition in the apex court demanding the reconstruction of the temple. The petition says that the temple is more than 600 years old, so new laws do not apply to it.
The petition also mentions the right to worship and Article 21A. The petition said that the apex court never ordered the temple to be demolished, rather it was said to move it. At the same time, the way the temple was demolished, it has been done under a big conspiracy. The petition says that the court should reconsider its decision and pass the order for the construction of the temple.
Many mythological facts have been cited in the petition. Before the filing of this petition, the Supreme Court had asked the governments of Delhi, Punjab and Haryana to ensure that the law and order situation does not deteriorate. The court had said that the temple case of Guru Ravidas in Tughlakabad, Delhi, cannot be given a political colour.
