Namaz Disallowed in Sector-37 Gurugram, Villagers Hold Condolence Meet for CDS Bipin Rawat


Members of the Sanyukt Hindu Sangharsh Samiti and the Muslim organisation jointly paid tributes to General Rawat in Sector-29.

After condolence meeting for CDS Bipin Rawat this Friday, a family kitchen (Bhandara) at the same location is planned for next Friday to bar Muslims from offering namaz.

GURUGAM — Members of Hindu organisations and local villagers did not allow Friday Namaz in Sector-37 industrial area.

In a bid to stop the prayers, condolence meetings were organised for Chief of Defence Staff Bipin Rawat, his wife and other army personnel who lost their lives in a chopper crash on December 8.

Trucks and other vehicles were also found parked hap hazardously at Hero Honda Namaz location.

Apart from this, members of the Sanyukt Hindu Sangharsh Samiti and the Muslim organisation jointly paid tributes to General Rawat in Sector-29.

Meanwhile, the Friday Namaz was disrupted in a park located in Sector-44 by members of the Hindu right-wing. However, due to the deployment of a heavy police force at the suspected sites, no untoward incident was reported.

“We organised condolence meet in Sector-37 industrial area for our beloved CDS Bipin Rawat Ji and other army personnel who lost their lives during an unfortunate incident recently. Next Friday, we will also organise a family kitchen (Bhandara) at the same location. This is our village land and we used to park trucks and vehicles here. We will not allow anyone to offer Namaz here,” Rinku a local villager told IANS.

Meanwhile, a Muslim man who was prevented from reaching the site said: This was a wrong way to stop us from offering Namaz. In Sector-37 a number of people are offering Namaz since several years but nobody stopped us but now few organisations are deliberately disrupting the prayers to gain political milage. We also have faith in Hindu religion and a real Hindu can not prevent anybody from offering prayers,” Rashid Malik told media.

Earlier, in a meeting with the district administration, the Muslim organisation had decided to go ahead with Friday prayers at 18 places including six temporary spots in Gurugram. — IANS
