Gurugram: Hindu organisations protest every Friday over open prayers in Gurugram, Haryana. Sometimes they raise religious slogans, sometimes they start reading Hanuman Chalisa instead of praying. In view of this, many Hindus in Gurugram are giving their place to the Muslim community for Friday prayers, while the Sikh community is asking the Muslim Gurdwara to come and pray.
Gurugram Gurdwara Committee chief Sherdil Sidhu took Mufti Salim to Gurdwara of Gurugram Sadar Bazar. He said that this Friday, there will be Azaan along with Guruvani in this Gurdwara and Friday prayers will also be offered. Sidhu says that this time on Friday 'if Hindu organisations oppose Muslims over open prayers, Muslim brothers should come to the Gurdwara and offer prayers. Sidhu says, 'We are saving the country. The Gurdwara is open to all communities. Guru Nanak was also accompanied by a Muslim brother. Muslims have also given their lives for the country'.
On the other hand, Akshay Yadav of Sector 12, Gurugram, has given his 100 yards shop to the Muslim community to offer Friday prayers. Akshay says he will not allow Gurugram to break in any form. Muslim brothers can also pray in the courtyard of their house if they wish. Akshay said, 'I have been in Gurgaon for 40 years. Born here, I won't let it break. There are many like me who are willing to give their place for prayer'.
