‘Identity of Qutub Minar cannot be changed’, ASI opposes Hindu side’s plea


The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has opposed the petition filed by the Hindu side demanding worship at Qutub Minar. The ASI has said in its reply filed in the Saket court that the identity of Qutub Minar cannot be changed.

A petition has been filed in Delhi’s Saket court seeking the right to worship and restore Hindu and Jain deities inside the Qutub Minar complex. It has been claimed in the petition that many idols of Hindu deities are present in the Qutub Minar complex.

Right to worship cannot be given – ASI.

At the same time, on this petition, ASI has filed its answer in the Saket court. ASI said Qutub Minar had a protected monument status since 1914. ASI noted the identity of Qutub Minar cannot be changed. Nor can worship be allowed in the memorial now. There has never been worship here since the time it was preserved.


The ASI said the petitions of the Hindu side are not legally valid. Also, breaking the old temple and building the Qutub Minar complex is a matter of historical fact. Right now, no one has the right to worship in Qutub Minar. Since Qutub Minar was taken under protection, no worship was done here, so worship cannot be allowed here.

Remains of 27 temples in Qutub Minar

Petitioner Harishankar Jain, who has filed a petition demanding worship of the petitioner, has made a big claim about Qutub Minar. He says that more than 100 relics of about 27 temples are scattered in Qutub Minar. He said we have so much evidence about Qutub Minar, which no one can deny. Harishankar Jain has claimed all the evidence he has taken from ASI books. He said this ASI says that these are the remains of temples.
