Why Hindus Are So Sentimental About Their Bhagwan Krishna’s Divine Birth Place
Any harm done to a family member’s house incite anger in the minds of his well wishers. When so much love is bestowed for selfish human beings, then why the eternal love cannot be conveyed to the most merciful, life giver Bhagwan Krishna. Hindus consider Bhagwan Krishna as one of the members of their family. Some revere him as elder brother, some as their kid, others as their father. Bhagwan Krishna is the most merciful loving God who is happy to have connection with his devotees. So any harm done to his abode is sure to hurt Hindus.
Shri Krishna Janmbhoomi is one of the most holiest places for Sanatan Dharmis (Hindus), since it is the birth place of Bhagwan Krishna. It is a prison cell belonging to his mama (maternal Uncle) King Kans where Bhagwan Krishna was born.
Shri Krishna Janmbhoomi is temple located in the crowded city of Mathura. Mathura, the birth city of Bhagwan Krishna is situated on the banks of river Yamuna and is approximately 145 km from the capital city Delhi. The town is renowned for being host to the most revered temple of Shri Krishna – the famous Krishna Janma Bhoomi Mandir. Along with neighboring towns Govardhan, Nandgaon and Vrindavan, the area is a major pilgrimage site for the Hindus. The temple is located in the middle of the city mathura.
According to historians, the prison cell, popularly known as ‘Garbha Griha’, in the temple premise is the exact place where Bhagwan Krishna was born. The stone walled cell is reminiscent of the cruelty of King Kans. Many statues and sculptures of the bygone era were found on excavating the site. The prison cell was gradually turned into the present beautiful temple. Lakhs of devotees visit the temple during Janmashtami. The festivities and celebrations during the festival is famous all over India. Celebrations begin during mid night with the birth of Bhagwan.
The prison structure is the place where Bhagwan Krishna took Avatar, which happens only once in a Yug, to establish Dharma. The Dwapar Yug comprise of 864,000 years. So The pious incident of Avatar occur once in the last stages of Yug, which happened in Dwapar Yug, in final stages of 864,000 years. So it took almost 862,000 years for a Krishna to take Avatar. That is the reason that Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple is the most visited temple in Mathura. Its predominance also confirms the belief that it is the same place where Bhagwan Krishna divinely took birth to Devaki and Vasudev. Numerous articles excavated from the site bare testimony to the history of Sri Krishna’a birth. The security of the most sacred place in Mathura is always on high alert. Next to great temple of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi, an anti-Vedic structure, mosque, is present which is symbol of encroachment and islamic terrorism.
The mosque was built to spread the evil cult islam among Hindus and obstruct the Hindus from visiting the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple by terrorist mughal, Aurangzeb. But the melcchas (muslims) failed to deviate the path of Dharma that Hindus follow in Mathura. The eyesore to the pride of Hindus, anti-Vedic, Shahi Mosque, was instituted by a muslim invader Aurangzeb, who destroyed a magnificent temple that stood there for centuries. The present temple is reminiscent of the beautiful temple that stood the time for hundreds of years.

Archaeological and Historical Names of Katara Keshavdev (Mathura) as Birth Place of Shri Krishna
Archaeological and historical evidences show that birth place of Krishna is given different names by the bhakts of Shri Krishna and devotees. In due course of time, surrounding area of birth place of Krishna is also known as “Katara Keshavdev”. Mr. F.S. Grauja, Archaeologist and the then collector of Mathura opined that Katara Keshavdev and surrounding area is known as Mathura alone. From historical literature, the historian Kaniham, informed that there was a Jungle king named Madhu. The place is named after him as “Madhupur” which is known as “Maholi” today. After the defeat of King Madhu, surrounding area of prison presently called as “Bhuteshwar” was called as Mathura and the same was Katara Keshavdev. The historian Kaniham called this as Keshavpur.
Another scholar Dr. Vasudev Sharan Agarwal has called Katara Keshavdev as Krishna Janma Bhoomi. From these different studies and evidences regarding evolution of the name Mathura, Mr. Krishnadatta Vajpayee, the second curator of political museum of Mathura, accepted that Katara Keshavdev is the birth place of Lord Krishna.

Archaeological Evidences and History of Attacks by Muslims
From the analysis of Archaeological research and thousands of archaeological fragments of Katara Keshavdev and the different writings of foreign tourists, it is evident that huge temples were built from time to time at this place. The evidence show that Brajanabh the great grand son of Krishna, has built first temple at the prison of Kans where the Bhagwan Krishna was divinely born.
From the stones script written in Brahmi script “Mahakshatrap Shodash” (B.D. 80-57) it is evident that a person named Vasu has built a Festonn and yagna kund (यज्ञकुन्ड) at the birth place of Krishna. During the regime of Chandragupta, Vikramaditya, the temple was rebuilt.
During this period this temple was not only the place of Vaidik ritual but also the place of faith for Buddhists, Jains. In A.D.1017 this gracious temple was looted by Mohammed of Ghaznavi. In the book, Tarike Yamini written by Mir Munshi Al-Utabi, it is stated that in the very middle of the city there was an elegant temple, it was so beautiful, it appeared to have been built by the angels. It is very difficult to describe the elegance of the surrounding temples too in words and in pictures. Sultan Mohammed has also stated that if anybody tries to built such a gracious temple, the expenses would be 10 crores of Dinar and it will take not less than 200 years. However, Being a follower of koran, Mohammed destroyed this temple in the heat of anger. The history shows that the very sincere devotion towards Krishna and lively Hinduism inspired a person named Jajja to built another Krishna Janma Bhoomi and during the regime of Maharana Vijaypal Dev of Mathura in 1150, the temple was rebuilt.

The evidence from stones script written in Sanskrit at Katara Keshavdev shows that the temple has become the target of destruction in the evil eyes of Muslim rulers. During the regime of Sikander Lodi, Krishna Janma Bhoomi was once again was destroyed. After about 125 years during the rule of Jahangir King, Vir Sinha Judev Bundela constructed a very huge temple of 250 feet tall at the cost of Rs.33 lakhs. In order to protect the temple from evil eye of Muslim rulers, a tall and strong wall was built around the temple. Even today, we can find the remnants of this wall. As established by the several evidences, Shri Krishna Janm Bhoomi temple was attacked by anti-Hindu muslim rulers time and again, while they followed evil teachings of koran to destroy livelihood, temples of peace loving civilians and culture of idol worshipers.
Destruction of Huge and Marvellous Hindu Temple by Aurangzeb
The Curse of Sages and Fall of Aurangzeb
The foreign tourist from France, Italy have described Shri Krishna Janam Bhoomi temple as elegant and master piece of architecture. The tourist Taivaniyar from France, Manuchi from Italy described the temple as beautiful master piece. The apex of temple was covered with Gold and it was so tall that one can see from distance of 36 miles away from the Agra. All these praise worthy writings regarding the temple made Aurangzeb angry and he destroyed the temple in 1669. He was so irritated about the elegance of Hindu temples that bricks and other material recovered from the destruction of temple was used by him to make a big chair. The height of destructive islamic mind of Aurangzeb is nothing but the construction of anti-Vedic evil structure of Idgah at the very birth place of Krishna. Brahmins and Sages had forewarned Aurangzeb of dire consequences for his evil act of destructing Hindu temples and now Shri Krishna Janm Bhoomi temple. Their prophecy became true, Aurangzeb was punished for his evil act of destruction of Keshavdev Mandir as he could not ever live happily, he suffered from the mental agony, sorrow and sickness throughout his life thereafter and could not return back alive from South. The circumstances made his sons oppose him and later they could not even protect the, symbol of terrorism, Idgah during the war time and ultimately Agra and Mathura became part of the Great Maratha Kingdom.

Business of East India Company on The Bhakti of Hindus
The East India Company later auctioned the place to generate revenue on the emotions of the Hindus. Marathas declared the whole area of Katara Keshavdev including Idgah as unowned property and nobody has taken care of this property. This was grave mistake on the part of erstwhile Marathas, they should have owned the property and constructed a huge Shri Krishna temple over it. Due to fragmentation of strength among Hindu rulers, in 1802 Lord Lake acquired victory over Marathas and Mathura and Agra became territory of East India Company. [The loss of places by Maratha rulers is a lesson for modern Hindus, to remain united and fight aggressively against invaders and mlecchas(anti-Hindus)]. East India Company was managed by cruel, wicked and cunning Britishers, they needed money to take other parts of India in the grip. So they devised several ways to generate income from Hindus which included charging extra money from Hindu pilgrims in their holy places – this evil concept was followed by the precedence set by terrorist mughal rulers. In 1815 East India Company declared auction of Katara Keshavdev area admeasuring 13.37 sq.acres. This area was sold to King Patnimal of Kashi. However, though King wanted to built a gracious temple in the memory of Bhagwan Krishna, to fulfill the demands of millions of Hindus, the Muslims took wrong objection that the auction was only for Katara Keshavdev and not for anti-Vedic structure, Idgah. The dispute was initiated by muslims which instigated further rift among peaceful Hindus and trouble maker muslims. The unfair and illegal demand of muslims took the course of disputes to legal battle.
Legal Case of Shri Krishna Janam Bhoomi
In the year 1878, for the first time, Muslims registered the case. They stated that Katara Keshavdev is property of Idgah and Idgah was built by Aurangzeb. In this case evidence was demanded from Mathura jurisdiction. The then collector secretary Mr. Tailor stated that this area was unowned in the regime of Maratha. However, the East India Company has also considered the area as unclaimed. Subsequently, in the year 1815 King Patnimal purchased the area in the auction. He further added that according to the verdict, King Patnimal was the owner of the area including other constructions and Idgah, since he paid for the entire area admeasuring 13.37 sq.acres. So any construction happening within the premise is fully owned by King Patnimal. Muslims became peechless, because they cribbed without any substantial evidence of legal ownership. And since the original temple of Shri Krishna Janam Bhoomi belonged to Hindus and later to Hindu King Patnimal, their false claim was overturned.
Second time the case was registered as Ahmed Shah V/s. Gopi under section 447/352 I.P.C. Mathura in the court of second class Magistrate, Anthony. In this case, Ahmed Shah alleged that the watchman of Idgah, Gopi, was constructing a road in the western side of Katara Keshavdev. However, that road is the property of Idgah and hence, Ahmed Shah stopped Gopi from improving the road. In this case, the learned judge gave decision that the road was the property of family Patnimal and allegation made by Ahmed Shah was completely untrue. The cunning ploy to establish somehow ownership of Idgah again fell flat.

The Third case was made by the district judge of Agra in the civil court. Appeal No.236 of 1921 and 276 of 1920. This appeal was made in opposition to the decision given by Judge Hoper of Mathura. In the verdict of this case, it is stated that East India Company had auctioned entire area and sold to King Patnimal at Rs.1140/- and tax was collected by the King. In the court verdict, decision is given as the disputable area is not of Idgah as Idgah is property of King Patnimal. So King and his heirs had every right to collect tax on their own land.
Declaration of the Hindu Rights on Entire Area of Shri Krishna Janm Bhoomi
Muslims by any which means wanted illegal ownership of anti-Vedic strucure, Idgah. In the year 1928, Muslims installed a mill for maintenance and renovation of Idgah. Again the case was registered in the Court of Law and learned Pandit Bishan Narayan Tankha gave the verdict that Katara Keshavdev is the property of descendants of Raja Patnimal and hence neither renovation of Idgah nor installation of mill is allowed. On 7.2.1944 Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya expressed his desire to build Shri Krishna Temple at that place. From the inspiration of M.M.Malviya, Jugal Kishore Birla purchased the entire area at Rs.13,400/- and a trust was formed by Madan Mohan Malviya, Hanuman Prasad Potdar & Bhikamal Atriya.
Being liars and dishonest to the core, Muslims again placed another shallow argument to somehow make the claim on the Idgah. So again case was registered by the trust on the point that due to some mistake the name of the Idgah is not on the Govt. documents and the area was sold at a very low price. The claim was based on such a fragile statement that again they lost the case, since in their own statement they clarified that the place ws sold and already owned by Hindu King Patnimal. In 1946 the case was rejected and verdict was given as Katara Keshavdev is property of the descendants of Raja Patnimal and subsequently, it is sold to Shri Krishna Janma Bhoomi Trust. In this way, the case was rejected by the learned Judge.
Subsequently, in the year 1960 when again the case was reopened the verdict given by the Judge was as follows.
“On the analysis of the accounts of Municipal Council of Mathura and other evidences, it is learnt that land tax is paid by the trust and hence, Idgah is the property of Krishna Janma Bhoomi Sanstha. Muslims have right to go to Idgah only on the occasion of Id for Namaj.”
Even after several court rulings, muslims turned to ploy of deceit and sweet talk, they continued to pursue VHP and other Hindu organizations to give them some leeway on the ownership of idgah. In 1968 the SKJS (Shri Krishna Janma Bhoomi Sanstha) and the idgah committee reached an agreement granting ownership of the land to the temple trust – dominated by the VHP including erstwhile VHP President Vishnu Hari Dalmia – even as the management rights of the masjid were left to the idgah committee; which was in a way submission by Hindus. Since the entire land is owned by Hindus so giving management of idgah to muslims was completely irrelevant decision and not conducive to construction of monumental Shri Krishna Janam Bhoomi Temple. The agreement deprived the trust of the legal right to stake a claim on the masjid. Meanwhile, Manohar Lal Sharma, a devout Hindu and resident of Brindaban, who filed a case in the Allahabad High Court seeking a restraint on Muslims offering namaz five times a day also filed another petition in the Mathura District Court challenging the 1968 agreement.

Recently, the Mathura administration again found clinching evidence which further proves the Hindus’ claim that the Shahi Mosque at Mathura was built over Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple. According to the locals, on August 14 the local administration started digging in the courtyard of the mosque for construction of some rooms for the security staff. During the digging the labourers found stone pillars, carving and an idol of a Hindu God. They immediately reported that matter to the authorities.
As news of the recovery of the idol from the courtyard of the Shahi Mosque spread, senior police and administrative officials and members of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust reached the spot. Meanwhile, the patron of the Trust, Shri Gopeshwar Chaturvedi, told media that during digging between August 14 and 17, besides carved stones and pillars, an idol of a Hindu God with a snake over its head was found.
Shri Krishna Janam Bhoomi Mandir Should Be The World’s Most Beautiful and Elegant Temple Covering Entire Land Owned by Trust
A Hindu movement is underway to reinstate this temple. The awareness campaign among Hindus would help in uniting the Hindus for the construction of Shri Krishna Janam Bhoomi Temple. Spread and share this post among devout Hindu brothers and sisters and become part of the pre-movement. Proponence of Vedic culture and tradition is the only key for keeping India secured and united. Any rise of anti-Vedic culture means another partition of India as it happened in 1947. It is upto us to keep India secure for next generation of Hindus.
The fact is that the eyesore of Hindus, Idgah, is the property of Shri Krishna Janma Bhoomi Trust. Even as on today, land tax for the entire area including Idgah is being paid by the Trust and in series of judgements made, it is clear that Idgah is the property of Krishna Janma Bhoomi Trust completely owned by them. Hindus should have demolished the Idgah long time back, there is no wrong in dismantling the symbol of terrorism, that was constructed harming our Hindu ethos and Shri Krishna temple. Idgah is the property of Hindus, they are paying taxes for the anti-Vedic structure and complete management of that should be immediately given to the Hindus.
Once the management comes into the hands of Hindus, we will demolish the pathetic Idgah, perform yagna, do complete shuddhikaran of the place and build a very huge gracious monument of Shree Krishna at the place, which will be the spiritual centre of the whole world from where the preaching of the pious knowledge, Srimad Bhagwad Geeta will be spread for the betterment of the world.
