Tension gripped as mosque sealed in Gurugram as part of drive against illegal structures

Following sealing of a mosque in Gurugram by Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) as part of a drive against illegal structures, tensions grew in Sheetla Mata Colony.

A total of 11 illegal structures were sealed by the MCG. The multi-storied mosque was facing opposition because of the use of loudspeakers a few weeks ago which caused inconvenience to residents. Members of Muslim community reportedly gathered near the mosque in huge number accusing the authorities of working under pressure.

Reportedly, people had protested after a three-storied house was converted into a mosque and loudspeaker was used for azaan. A complaint was lodged last Wednesday.

When the mosque was sealed, a large number of Muslims gathered around claiming that the authorities have acted under pressure as there is also a church and a temple within 300 metres radius of the Air Force ammunition depot. Locals also justified the structure converted to a mosque by saying that there are other illegal structures also being constructed all around but the mosque was targeted.
