New Delhi: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi has questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Namaz controversy in Moradabad. Owaisi has asked that for how long will such treatment be done to Muslims?
Asaduddin Owaisi has surrounded PM Modi by tweeting and said, “Muslims in India can no longer offer Namaz even at home? Do you have to take permission from the government/police to offer Namaz now? Narendra Modi should answer this, by when will Muslims be treated as second class urbanites in the country?”
Owaisi further said, “The fundamentalism in the society has spread to such an extent that now even offering Namaz in the homes of others hurts the ’emotion’ of the people.”
What’s the matter?
In village Dulhapur of Chhajlait police station area of Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh, people have filed a complaint with the police alleging that hatred, enmity and animosity is being spread in the village by the other side offering Namaz. The police have registered a case against 16 named and 10 unknown people for offering prayers collectively.
On receiving the complaint, the police registered a case under section 505 (2) against those who offered Namaz and started investigation.
Police said that a huge number of people gathered to offer namaz in two houses in a village and there was no mosque there. After receiving a complaint, a case has been registered against the owners of both houses. A video of offering Namaz has gone viral on social media.
