Indian Prime Minister: Muslims cannot pray Friday prayers in an open room in Gurugram—The far right has the support of Haryana’s Prime Minister ML Khattar, who has announced that he will withdraw the agreement that allows Muslims to be on government-allocated land on Friday. Announcing the decision, Khattar said Muslims should not appear in Gurugram’s open spaces on Fridays.

In the past few weeks, Hindu hardliners have Hindutva Supported by extremist organizations, Muslims protested praying in government-designated places in the Gurugram area. The protests have sparked discussions about the convention for years.

Muslims faced repeated threats and slogans from Hindu fanatics that contradicted their beliefs and their community.

After several municipal clashes in 2018, the Gurugram region administration allocated state-owned land to Muslims in several parts of the city as places for Friday prayer. The government’s move was taken to defuse the conflict between the two communities.

In recent months, however, the far-right Hindutva Kembali opposed the government’s decision and sparked a debate on social media that eventually led to some Hindutva extremists in some circles.

Announcing the revocation of the government-granted agreement, Khattar said the Gurugram government would renegotiate with all parties involved to seek a “peaceful” settlement. As long as there is no decision, Muslims can only pray in their homes or mosques, Khattar said.

“I’ve spoken to the police and this matter needs to be resolved. We have no problem with someone praying in a place of worship. These places were built for this purpose, ”he told reporters. “But that shouldn’t be done openly. We will not tolerate the habit of praying outdoors, “he added.

The Prime Minister’s move to support extremists – although most of them carry fanatical slogans and threaten to prayer (People of Worship) remain acquitted, arguably fueling a campaign by intolerant majority groups not only in Haryana but across India, where Hindutva extremists have sought to alienate Muslim groups from the political and economic mainstream. The cable.

Khattar also added that the district government would designate free areas of the Muslim Waqf Council to serve the Muslim community and made it clear that government land would not be available for such services.

Khattar’s move is seen as a model for extremist sentiments, especially when there are no such bans or dictates by his government against people of different faiths. Hindus have been organizing rallies for centuries rasa jagran, Ram Navami, Dussehra and Kanwaria, while ethnic Sikhs have organized Kirtan and Prabhat pheris Every day.

Recently, hardliners have been encouraged to publicly display the religious practices of Hindus Hindutva, often for the political purposes of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), writes The cable.

On the other hand, Muslims are forbidden to pray at Gurugram’s to stir up hostility in the community. Right-wing influencers have opposed any public display of religious practices while criticizing the offerings prayer (ibadah) di Gurugram.

In reality, however, the extremists are Hindutva in protest they chanted the slogans “Jai Shri Ram” (Dewa Sri Rama) and threw cow dung onto the prayer room – an obvious means for the Muslim worship room and the polarization of conventional practices along communal lines.

Tensions between the communities have flared up since the first protests began in October. This will be judged by the impact of the Gurugram government’s policy last month banning Muslims from praying in at least eight of the 37 government-designated locations.

Under the pretext of accepting the complaints and objections of “residents”, the district government now also bans Muslims from worshiping elsewhere. That’s plus group provocation Hindutva continue to be aggressive towards Muslim activities.

Indian TV channels, NDTV reported that, among a number of recent “objections”, one was that Rohingya refugees use the site to commit crimes in the area. Neither the police nor the government were able to gather evidence to support the allegation.

Even Khattar in covert support for the activists Hindutva has already said that “who shouldn’t block traffic”. Some said Khattar’s move was part of a political campaign to gain support from extremist groups. *
