If namaz is to be banned in public spaces, the same rules should apply to other religions.
In the wake of alleged disruptions to namaz by right-wing groups at multiple locations in Gurgaon — they have been trying to "disrupt" Friday prayers in the city over the last two weeks alleging that some people were trying to grab land — Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said such congregations should be restricted to mosques, Eidgahs or private places, even as he asserted the government will ensure that law and order is maintained.
"Our point of view is that namaz should be offered in the precincts of religious places like mosques and Eidgahs, and if there is shortage of place for offering namaz, it should be done at private places," Khattar said.
The disruptions were caused allegedly by members of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, the Bajrang Dal, the Hindu Kranti Dal, the Gau Rakshak Dal and the Shiv Sena.
