RTI query reveals temple adjacent to Hyderabad Charminar illegal

Wednesday April 03, 2013 07:42:32 PM, Special Correspondent

Hyderabad: The temple constructed adjacent to the historic Charminar of Hyderabad and is illegal and unauthorized construction, an application file under Right to Information (RTI) Act has revealed.

 

"As per the AMASR Act 1958, Rules 1959, AMSAR Act 2010 (Amendment and Validation) the construction of temple adjacent to the south eastern minar of the Charminar has considred by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) as an unauthorized construction", the ASI said in its letter dated 03.12.2012 in response to an RTI application filed by SQ Masood, an RTI Activist.

 

Along with this reply, a copy of which has been provided to ummid.com by SQ Masood, Archaeological Survey of India on his request also provided him the departmental photographs of the site in which the temple does not exist in 1959.

 

Some Hindus had been quoted in the media that the temple was legal and it existed before the construction of Charminar. 

 

The issue was recently in the media limelight and had created communal tension and political re-alignment in Andhra Pradesh.

 

There was a communal tension in the city after some people from the Hindu community decided to expand the existing illegal construction of the temple.

 

The dispute later forced the All India Majlise Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) to withdraw the support to the Congress led government in the state.

 

Difference between the two former alliance partners deepened further after AIMIM legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi was booked and consequently jailed in a hate speech case.
