An appeal to restore the original Hindu, Jain temples of Qutub Minar

Hari Shankar Jain and Ranjana Agnihotri filed a petition in a court in the national capital Delhi pursuing the reinstallation of the original twenty-seven Hindu, Jain temples that were brought down to ruins by the founder of the Mamluka dynasty Qutub-ud-din Aibak.

The petition lucidly emphasizes on facts based upon various historical sources of knowledge that ‘The Qutub Minar’ was at first the site where the twenty-seven Hindu and Jain temples existed before they were demolished by Aibak in the 12th century and the ‘Qutub Minar’ structure was constructed.

The petition not only demands the refurbishment of the original ancient temples but at the same time claims the right to perform ‘Vidhivat Puja’ in reverence of Sri Vishnu and the first Trithankara of Jainism- Rishabhnath Dev.

Further, the suit stresses upon the reinstatement of the revered murtis of Bhagwan Shiva, Vinayaka, Suryadeva, Amba and more with utmost honour.

“The structural inner and outer outlook of the building complex symbolizes with ancient Hindu and Jain temple Architecture. The corridor is completely of Vedic style having rectangular galleries with holy symbol engraved pillars. The invader had dismantled and defaced the idols only to degrade Hindu deities and demoralize the worshipers,” the suit reads.

Various archeological findings prove that ‘Qutub Minar’ was originally the ‘Dhruv Sthambha’ that was manipulated and rechristened in order to meet personal and religious agendas.

Prof. M.S.Bhatnagar has carried our extensive research on the same and his research papers and writing give enough evidences to prove that ‘The Qutub Minar’ was built on the ruins of Hindu and Jain temples.

One can only wait and watch if justice will be done, delayed or denied for the Hindus and Jains.
