An application has been moved before in a local court in Mathura with a prayer to seal the disputed Idgah mosque complex. The petitioners, Advocates Mahendra Pratap Singh and Rajendra Maheshwari have moved this application claiming that if the disputed premises is not sealed, then the religious character of the property will be changed.

The application also demands that the security of the Shahi Idgah Mosque premises should be increased, any kind of movement should be banned and security officers should be appointed. The Civil Judge Senior Division Court will now hear this petition on July 1.

The application seeks a direction to Mathura SP, Mathura DM, and CRPF Commandment to seal the premises and preserve the Hindu Religious symbols.

Advocate Mahendra Pratap Singh, who is also the president of Sri Krishna Janmabhumi Mukti Nyas, has stated in his application that the evidence of Sanatan temples like Swastika, lotus flower, snake, bell, Kalash, flower garland, and other religious symbols are also present in the Shahi Idgah mosque.

Referring to the Varanasi Court's order to seal the spot of Gyanvapi Mosque premises where the advocate commissioner reported the finding of Shiva Linga in the survey, the application states that Idgah Mosque premises too, needs to be preserved immediately as evidence, or else the parties in possession can destroy them.

It may be noted that on May 13, an application was moved by one Manish Yadav in the court of Civil Judge (Senior Division), Mathura, seeking the appointment of an advocate commissioner to carry out an inspection of the Shahi Idgah Masjid.

In his application, a prayer was made to appoint a senior advocate, an advocate commissioner, and get a video survey done of Shahi Idgah immediately in view of the fact that Hindu religious symbols are present inside the mosque.

The Allahabad High Court has recently directed a local court in Mathura to decide on two applications pending before it, filed in connection with the Sri Krishna Janambhumi Dispute, within 4 months.
