Watch | Hindu Groups Object to Namaz in a Public Space in Gurugram

This is the fourth consecutive week when Friday prayers by the Muslim community in the area have been targeted.

Listen to this article:

Every Friday, members of the Muslim community gather for Jumma Namaz in Gurugram’s Sector 47. They’ve been praying on an empty lot of land since May 2018, as part of an agreement with the government.

However, in the past few weeks, members of the Bajrang Dal and Bharat Mata Vahini have been objected to the namaz. This past Friday, police set up barricades to prevent a group from reaching the namaz spot. The Wire‘s Yaqut Ali reports from the ground.
