Why namaz in public places ?

Special online discussions on – Why namaz in public places ?’

The fight needs to be given like Hindus from Gurugram to stop the illegal reading of ‘namaz’ at public places! – Neeraj Atri

In this country for the past several years, we have been experiencing that the Police and administration always dance to the tune of political leaders. The illegal reading of ‘namaz’ in public places all over the country is a challenge to the civility of this country. The way Hindu citizens and organisations opposed to the illegal reading of namaz happening openly on the roads at Gurugram, there is need to show similar opposition all over the country, stated Mr. Neeraj Atri, the President of ‘Vivekananda Karya Samiti’ while speaking in an online special discussions program held by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) on the topic of ‘Why namaz in public places?’

Only for the politics of ‘Vote Bank’, special concessions have been extended to a certain community for the last 70 years in this country, causing the breach of the Constitution. As per the Indian Constitution, nobody has a right to do anything that will cause inconvenience to other citizens, but reading ‘namaz’ at public places causes so much inconvenience to pedestrians and commuters travelling through different modes of transport as they are kept waiting. It is, therefore, necessary to give a legal fight to stop illegal reading of ‘namaz’ in public places. Advocates should take initiative in filing a petition in this connection, was the opinion expressed by Advocate Gaurav Goyal, practising in the Supreme Court.

There is a ban on reading namaz at public places even in Muslim countries, then why is there so much pampering in secular India ?

Mr Narendra Surve, the Spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti said in this regard that the reason given for reading ‘namaz’ at public places was a shortage of space in mosques which is completely wrong. If Hindus also say that they would start performing religious rituals at public places because there is a lack of space in temples, will it be allowed? Today, there is a ban on reading ‘namaz’ at public places even in many Muslim countries and a heavy fine is charged if the rule is not followed. Why are the Police permitting illegal reading of ‘namaz’ at public places in secular India? Hindus have to, however, struggle to get permission even for celebrating their public festivals like ‘Ganeshotsav’ and ‘Navaratrotsav’.  It is, therefore, surprising that in a modern city like Gurugram, reading ‘namaz’ was happening at public places under police protection. Hindus should condemn such things and give a legal fight.
