Amid Gyanvapi row, MNS claims 2 dargahs in Pune built on temple land

Amid the Gyanvapi mosque row, the MNS has claimed that two dargahs had been built on the Punyeshwar temple land in Maharashtra`s Pune city.

MNS general secretary Ajay Shinde on Sunday said they have launched the Punyeshwar Mukti (free the temple land) campaign, and appealed to people to support the Raj Thackeray-led party`s fight in restoring the temple land.

Citing a recent survey of the Gyanvapi mosque, Shinde said government has started waking up in the wake of Raj Thackeray`s stand on Hindutva.

“Like Gyanvapi, we are also fighting for the Punyeshwar temple in Pune,” he said.

Shinde claimed that a commader of Khilji dynasty ruler Alauddin Khilji had demolished the Punyeshwar and Narayaneshwar temples in Pune and later dargahs were built on the land
