    SC modifies order, protects Kinara mosque near Haji Ali

    Haji Ali Dargah
    New Delhi: The Supreme Court today modified its earlier order on encroachments near the Haji Ali Shrine in Mumbai and protected the Kinara mosque located near the shrine from demolition. The court also asked the Maharashtra government to decide within a week the plea seeking the regularisation of the mosque.

    A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud took on record the consent of all parties including the Haji Ali Trust that if the state government rejects the regularisation plea, nobody will oppose the demolition of portions of the mosque which are built on encroached land near the historic shrine.

    The bench initially suggested that the parties should agree to shifting of the mosque to some other place. It has been alleged that certain part of the Kinara mosque falls under the encroached area which have been ordered to be cleared by the Bombay High Court. The Supreme Court has also upheld it. The bench has now fixed the matter after one week.
