Haryana: On Tuesday, the Gurugram administration revoked permission to offer namaz at eight of the 37 designated locations. The permission was revoked after local residents and the RWA raised objections, according to a statement from the district administration.
Bengali Basti in Sector 49, V Block of DLF Phase-3, Surat Nagar Phase-1, outskirts of Kherki Majra village, outskirts of Daulatabad village near Dwarka Expressway, near DLF Square Tower, and from Rampur village to Nakhrola Road are among the eight sites.
"For Namaz in any public and open place, consent from the administration is required," it stated. It goes on to say that namaz can be performed in any mosque, Eidgah, or private or designated location. "If local people object in other places as well," the administration added, "permission will not be granted to offer Namaz there as well."
The district administration also stated that Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner Yash Garg has formed a committee consisting of a subdivisional magistrate, an assistant commissioner of police, and members of religious organisations and civil society groups to discuss the issue and identify future namaz locations. This committee will consult with communities to resolve the issue and ensure that local residents have no difficulties offering namaz in the area. In addition, the committee will ensure that no namaz is offered on any road, crossing, or public space. Furthermore, when a location for prayers is chosen, locals' consent will be sought.
