Local Residents disrupt Juma namaz in Gurugram

Around 1 PM on the 8th of October 2021, a group of residents comprising 30-35 individuals gathered around one of the 37 designated sites to offer Juma prayers in Gurugram, Haryana. The protestors were holding placards reading “Stop namaz in open spaces.” These protestors were also chanting “Bharat Mata ki Jai” slogans. According to Hindustan times, “The protesters, gathered under the aegis of ‘Hindu Sanyukt Sangarsh Samiti,’ claimed that Muslim worshippers did not have permission to offer prayers at roadsides, parks, and vacant government land in the city. The Samiti is an umbrella body of 12 Hindutva groups, including Bajrang Dal, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Shiv Sena, Hindu Jagran Manch, Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Kranti Dal, and some other local groups. Although some verbal disputes and slogan-shouting were reported between the two sides at Sikarderpur, officials said the situation did not turn ugly due to police intervention.”
