UP: DM appeals for peace, clarifying that junior official who organised Islamic ritual at court premises has not been punished

Ahmad, as per reports, was facing several charges of irregularities. The District Magistrate clarified that his suspension was not due to organisation of Quran recital.

In Uttar Pradesh’s Auraiya, video of Maulanas reciting Quran in the SDM (Sub-Divisional Magistrate) court had gone viral on social media.

Following this, the Indian Express had reported that the junior official who had organised the ‘Quran Khawani’, recital of Quran after the dead, Laeeq Ahmad, has been suspended for having organised Quran recitation without permission. The District Magistrate Abhishek Singh, however, denied that Ahmad was suspended for organising Quran recitation. He told Indian Express that action was taken against Ahmad because of charges of irregularities.

As per reports, the SDM building was shifted after a new building was constructed. Some SDM workers had expressed their discomfort over the new building as it overlooked a Muslim graveyard. There were rumours that whoever stopped by the graveyard for few minutes, would fall ill. Hence, Ahmad, on his own, called Maulanas and organised a Quran recital in SDM premises because people there felt ‘negative energy’ as the building was near a Muslim graveyard.

Ahmad, as per reports, was facing several charges of irregularities. The District Magistrate clarified that his suspension was not due to organisation of Quran recital. Another report in Amar Ujala states that DM Abhishek Singh also met a few Muslims and appealed to them to maintain peace. He clarified to them as well that the junior official’s suspension has nothing to do with Quran recital but on charges of irregularities.
