Opp attacks CM Manohar Lal over foreign visit

Self Help Groups Manohar Lal Khattar birthday NRLM

There is no Haryana government order banning offering namaz in public spaces, but Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has ruffled communal feathers by making what he later said was a casual remark and clarifying that he did not say anything about stopping anyone from offering namaz anywhere! Khattar said that state is duty bound to maintain law and order.

The Board demanded that the state authorities should intervene and vacate the illegally occupied places so that it could be used for offering prayers on Friday.

Haryana CM Manohar Lal khattar, who is now on a foreign visit, on Sunday had indirectly supported the Hindu vigilante groups, who on a couple of times had disrupted prayers being offered at open spaces.

The paper also reports that hitherto unseen scenes of people offering their Friday prayers and getting up midway and running away in the face of this slogan-shouting were witnessed on busy streets like Iffco Chowk, Udyog Vihar, Leisure Valley Park and Mall Mile on MG Road.

Waqf Board has suggested that if the local administration helps it to remove the encroachments, the properties will be renovated and can be made available to offer prayers. "The properties including mosques and the land owned by the board are either disputed or have been encroached upon by the people", Waqf Board letter said.

A letter in this regard by the Haryana Waqf Board to the DC stated, "Today, Gurgaon is progressing at a fast pace, people are coming from outside to earn their bread and butter".

"We have prayed on this field for the past 10-12 years", said Wajid Khan, whose police complaint led to the arrests.

However, contrary to CM's clarification, Haryana minister Anil Vij had said that offering prayers at public place with the intention of grabbing the land is wrong and will not be allowed.

Asked to comment on the transfer of case to Pathankot, on the directive of the Supreme Court, Captain Amarinder said his government would ensure full security for the victim's family, lawyer and others during the trial proceedings. Over the last two weeks, there were "disruptions" to namaz at Wazirabad, the Atul Kataria Chowk, the Cyber Park, the Bakhtawar Chowk and at the South City, the police said.

Ritu Raj, a member of a Hindutva organisation, claimed that they organised a havan at Wazirabad to stop the namaz.

On Friday, some right-wing groups tried to disrupt the weekly prayers at several places in Grurugram.
