Mangaluru: A court hearing was held on Friday June 10 in connection with the discovery of a temple-like strructure at Malali Mosque near Ganjimatha in the outskirts of the City.

After hearing the arguments, the judge again adjourned the case to Tuesday June 14. The Third Additional Civil Court in Mangaluru is hearing the case. The mosque management has been arguing that the petition filed by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) should be rejected and the matter will come under Waqf Court.

Advocate Chidananda Kedilaya, appeared for the VHP, argued and Advocate M. P. Shenoy, appeared for the mosque management. According to the Government Waqf records in Malali, there is no need to prove it again that it is a mosque. A mosque is a place of worship as per the Waqf Act and such places are called Waqf property as per rules. Notification from the Central Government too declare the place as an ancient monument but there is no gazette notification on the mosque of Malali. M. P. Shenoy also argued that the Civil Court does not have the authority to say whether it is a monument or not and hence the petition should be dismissed.

VHP’s lawyer Chidananda Kedilaya sought time for counter-arguments and the court adjourned the hearing to Tuesday.
