Delhi Minorities Commission alerts parties over petition in Delhi HC to enter other religions’ places

AMN / New Delhi

One Sanjiiv KKumar [sic] has filed a petition in Delhi High Court seeking permission to enter Parsi, Muslim and Christian prayer places at any time and in any condition. Court has been asked to allow even menstruating women to visit others’ prayer places. The petition will be heard next April but any party has not been served with a copy of the petition so far. Delhi Parsi Anjuman came to know about it and acquired a copy.

A Parsi delegation led by Mrs Ava Khullar, President of Delhi Parsi Anjuman, visited the Delhi Minorities Commission to seek help. Due to the seriousness of the issue, the delegation also included Mr Yazdi Desai, President of Parsi Panchayat, the Mumbai-based national Zoroastrian organisation. Parsis are worried that such permission will cause them great pain since only Parsis under certain condition are allowed to enter the sacred fire temples. Permission to all to enter the fire temples will become a big problem for the community. DMC assured them of all possible help, gave them advice on how to protect their fire temples and expressed readiness to file an affidavit in the court or become a party to the case if needed.

It came to light through the petition file that the litigant has also made Delhi’s Jama Masjid and some Delhi churches as respondents. Chairman of DMC, Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan has sent a letter alongwith a copy of the petition to Imam Ahmad Bukhari of the Jama Masjid and to top Delhi Church authorities to be prepared so that no ex parte verdict is announced.

One thought on “Delhi Minorities Commission alerts parties over petition in Delhi HC to enter other religions’ places”

  1. The name of the litigant as it appears in the petition is “Sanjiiv KKumar” and that’s why we used [sic] when we mentioned it. This strange spelling shows that the person may not be real.
