MLA Abhay Patil met the Deputy Commissioner Nitesh Patil and requested him to survey the Shahi Masjid in Bapat Galli as he claimed it was built on a temple.
Dastgir Aga Muslim League leader held a press meet on Tuesday where he said the Shahi Masjid has been registered with the Wakf Board and was built by the Muslims and the Brahmin community.
Aga also mentioned that it was the Bapat family who asked the Muslims from nearby areas to come to the area and helped them in constructing the mosque.
Aga further said this is nothing but a political gimmick to destroy the peace and harmony between the two communities.
A delegation will meet the DC soon and submit a memorandum to stop this kind of unwanted polarization in the community.
Aga said the architecture is always done by locals and has the taste of the local craftsmen.
