Municipal Corporation seals mosque in Gurgaon

Namaz-Muslim-Prayer-with-Meaning

Web Desk / agencies / Gurgaon / New Delhi

Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) Wednesday sealed a local mosque, with MCG commissioner saying it is too close to Indian Air Force (IAF) ammunition depot.

The sealing of the mosque comes after a week when some people belonging to Hindu outfits objected to the use of loudspeakers in the area, claiming that azaan or the call to prayer was disturbing them.

“The mosque has been sealed in accordance with the order of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, which prohibits any new construction within 300 metres of IAF ammunition depot. The structure lies within this radius,” said Yashpal Yadav, MCG Commissioner.

Miffed by the move, a large number of people assembled at the site and sat on a dharna against the MCG and the district administration.

On September 6, representatives of Muslim community had met the deputy commissioner (DC) to discuss the matter.

In a letter to him, the Muslim Ekta Manch had alleged, “2-3 days ago, some anti-social elements came to the area and submitted a letter against us to the Commissioner of Police. SHO of Sector 5 police station called both sides on Sept.5 and asked us to keep the volume of the loudspeaker low.” Community had claimed that the volume of the loudspeaker was lowered but some people belonging to Hindu outfits from outside the village were not “satisfied”.

Haji Shezad Khan, Chairman of Muslim Ekta Manch, told media: “We bought the 87 square metre plot four years ago and completed the construction two years ago. Our community has been offering namaz for a long time but now some people are opposing it.”

Khan said the plot was purchased in the name of Manch member Shamshad Khan.

“Our people are seated outside the sealed Masjid. We have warned the district administration that we will take the extreme step if the building was not unsealed soon,” he said, hinting at suicide.

“They said they did not like the presence of a mosque in the locality and that they would not allow us to pray there. They also indulged in sloganeering and threatened to kill us and burn our houses,” said  Haji Shehzad Khan.
