Representative image. | PTIMembers of Hindutva organisation Bajrang Dal members on Friday disrupted namaz in Gurugram’s Sector 69, The Indian Express reported.

In a video posted by Live Hindustan, a member of the organisation is seen telling the Muslim worshippers not to pray in open spaces.

“It does not matter whether they have permission to pray at six locations or not,” he is heard saying in the video. “We will scale up the protests if prayers continue in the coming weeks.”

Praveen Saini, the district coordinator of the Bajrang Dal, said that the Muslim men were lying when they said that they have been praying in the open space for 15 years.

“The Chief Minister has clearly said that there will be no namaz in open spaces,” he said.

In December 2021, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had said that offering namaz in open spaces will not be tolerated and that some sites in Gurugram reserved for Muslims to conduct prayers had been withdrawn.

Last year, there were several reports of Hindutva groups disrupting Namaz in Gurugram.
