Delhi High Court Rejected to Entertain an Urgent Hearing Of Plea Against Stay Of Namaz At Masjid Near Qutub Minar Premises

Qutub Minar Prayers

NEW DELHI:  Today, Delhi High Court refused to give an urgent hearing to a petition against staying on prayers at the Mosque inside the Qutub Minar Premises in Delhi. A vacation bench headed by Justices Manoj Kumar Ohri and Poonam A Bamba remarked that there was no urgency to hear the plea.

Petitioner Counsel Advocate M Sufian Siddiqui told the court the prayers were partially stopped by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) on May 6 when only five people were allowed into the mosque. Later, on May 13, the authorities stopped the prayers altogether.

He said – “There is no order but people have been stopped from offering prayers on verbal instructions. This is in violation of fundamental rights. Rule of law has to be upheld and preserved,”.

The Mosque is located at the entrance of the Qutub complex right in front of the Mughal Garden. The mosque is separate from the disputed Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque located in the Qutub Minar Enclosure.

Several Hindu members have been demanding the right to prayers at the Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque claiming that it has statues of several Hindu deities and was built after destroying Hindu and Jain temples.
