“The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) filed a counter-affidavit at the Saket District Court on May 24, 2022 stating that Qutub Minar is not a place of worship and its existing status cannot be altered. The affidavit was filed as an interim application in response to the plea seeking restoration of 27 Hindu and Jain temples inside the Qutub Minar complex and urges the plea to be dismissed.
The ASI, while admitting that there are a number of sculptures existing within the Qutab Minar Complex, opposed a petition saying that it cannot revive worship at a protected monument site. “”Qutub Minar monument is a protected monument under Section 3(3) of the Ancient Monuments Preservation Act, 1904 and it is being maintained ‘in-situ’ is the same condition,”” read ASI’s statement.
