”Don’t pray for Palestine,” Delhi Police warns mosque imams ( Maktoob Media )

Delhi Police has issued a notice to mosque imams, instructing them not to include prayers for Palestine during religious services, reports Inquilab, an Urdu daily.

The city police’s notice, warning of potential consequences for mentioning Israel’s genocidal war on Gaza in speeches, has sparked criticism.

Bahujan Samaj Party MP Danish Ali, All India Muslim Personal Law Board spokesperson and Welfare Party of India national president Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas, and lawyer MR Shamshad have denounced the police notice, asserting that the police action is completely wrong and the praying for the victims is an integral part of worship in Islam.
