What is the dispute and what was the agreement in 1968?
In 1951, it was decided that Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust would be rebuilt and the trust would manage the grand temple. After this, an organization named Sri Krishna Janma Sthan Seva Sangh was formed in 1958. The institution did not legally own the land, but it began to play all the roles assigned to the trust.
The institution filed a civil case for control of the entire land in 1964, but in 1968 itself reached a settlement with the Muslim side. Under this, the Muslim side left some of their possession for the temple and they (the Muslim side) were given a nearby place instead. Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi and Shahi Idgah Mosque are built on 13.37 acres. It currently occupies 10.50 acres of land. But the plaintiff wants ownership over the entire land.
