PIL filed in Gujarat by Muslim Organisation against the alleged conversion of Dargah into Temple

Gujarat High Court refuses to Order Status Quo, Issues Notices

Ahmedabad (Gujarat) – The Gujarat High Court on Friday refused to issue an order of status quo on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) plea moved by a Muslim Organisation ‘Sunni Awami Forum’ against the alleged conversion of 600-year-old Pir Imam Shah Bawa Dargah on the outskirts of Ahmedabad to Hindu religious places. The Bench of Chief Justice Arvind Kumar and Justice Mauna Bhatt however issued notices to the State Government, Ahmedabad collector, deputy collector, Superintendent of Police, Police Inspector of the concerned Police station, and the Imamshah Bawa Roza Trust.

The Suni Awami Forum in its plea has alleged that Imamshah Bawa Raza Trust under the guise of renovating the Dargha and the nearby Muslim religious places is turning them into Hindu religious places which is a violation of ‘the Places of Worship Act 1991’. A case has been filed with the police but no action has been taken by them is the accusation of those who had filed this plea.

Editorial viewpoint

Hindus should learn from the Muslims ! How many Hindus and their Organisations show this kind of promptness when their place of worship’s nature is changed to some other religion ?
