Chandigarh: The controversy over open prayers in Gurugram, Haryana, seems to be coming to an end. The Gurugram district administration has cancelled permission to offer prayers at eight places in the city on Tuesday. At the same time, it has been said that permission will not be allowed in other places in the city where people in the vicinity will object to open prayers. A meeting in this regard was held at the Mini Secretariat on Tuesday in which DCP Deepak Sararan, officials of Hindu and Muslim organizations were present. Everyone has agreed to this decision.
In a meeting led by Deputy Commissioner Dr Yash Garg at the Mini Secretariat, it was decided that the permission for open prayers has been cancelled by the district administration following objections from locals and RWA. Yash Garg said that permission to offer prayers at eight places in the city has been withdrawn, while other places will also not be allowed if locals object. A committee has been constituted by the District Deputy Commissioner to identify the places to offer prayers.
This includes SDM, ACP, Hindu/Muslim organization officials and other social organizations. The committee will hold talks with all parties and decide where to offer prayers in future. While taking this decision, it will be ensured that the local people do not face any problem by offering prayers. The committee will also ensure that prayers are not offered on any road, street or public place.
