Mathura Kashi Temple: There is a lot of politics going on in the country regarding the temple mosque. After the Shivling was found in the Gyanvapi Masjid, this controversy is getting deeper. Controversy is also increasing regarding Mathura Janmabhoomi, Qutub Minar and Taj Mahal. In such a situation, famous historian Irfan Habib gave such a statement which is in the headlines. He has said that yes Aurangzeb had broken the temples of Mathura Kashi. There was no secret work in those days. He told that the date of history is recorded till the date of breaking the temple. However, he defended himself and said that I am a historian, I do not do politics.
Eminent historian Irfan Habib, who was awarded Padma Bhushan, said that the temple of Banaras was destroyed by Aurangzeb and the temple of Mathura is also included in it. Which was built by Raja Veer Singh Bundela during the reign of Jahangir. He clearly said that there are two major temples which were demolished by Aurangzeb.
nothing new everything is recorded in history
Irfan Habib says that there is nothing that is new. All things are recorded in history. It is being told by claiming that historians have not told anything, it is wrong. All things are recorded in history but the point is how far back do you want to go. He said that Aurangzeb had done a wrong thing by destroying the temple, in the same way, now the government will also do the wrong thing. The incident of breaking the temple is recorded in the date of history. However, he also said that if the thing which was made in 1670, can you break it now, it is against the Memorial Act.
Signs of stones in mosques built by demolishing temples
He said that the temples which were demolished, their stones were planted in the mosques. He said that Shivling is being talked about in Gyanvapi Masjid, but in the petition which was filed, it was not even mentioned. There is a law for making Shivling. Shivling cannot be called everything. Shivling was not mentioned in the case that was filed, but now Shivling is being presented as an issue. He again said that Rana Kumbha has a big minaret in Chittor, on one of its stones, Allah is written in Arabic, so it cannot be called a mosque.
