When no other religious place has Covid restriction: HC rules out curbs on Markaz

Apr 12, 2021 18:48 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Rejecting the Centre’s submission that only 20 people be allowed to enter the premises, the Delhi High Court on Monday observed that there cannot be a cap on the number of worshippers at the Nizamuddin Markaz when no other religious place has such a restriction.


The High Court allowed the mosque inside to open for prayers during Ramzan in accordance with the Delhi government’s Covid-19 guidelines.


The HC added that anybody can wish to go to a temple or mosque or church and a specific list of 200 persons, like the one demanded by Delhi Police, cannot be given by anyone.


It, however, said that a list of persons managing the mosque can be given to the local SHO.
