Delhi HC allows entry of 5 persons at Nizamuddin Markaz to offer prayers in Ramzan


New Delhi, Apr 13 (INLS) The Delhi High Court today declined for a day the request of the Delhi Waqf Board to allow 50 people to enter the Nizamuddin Markaz, to offer prayers during the holy month of Ramzan.

The Single-Judge Bench of Justice Mukta Gupta, however, allowed five people to enter the said mosque and offer prayers during the holy month.

The bench expressed displeasure over the interview given by Delhi Waqf Board Chairman Amantullah Khan, in which he said, “The High Court has ordered for reopening of the Markaz Mosque.”

While the matter was being heard through video-conferencing, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, along with Advocate Rajat Nair, appearing for the Central government, said, “The entire human race is currently under an existential crisis.”

Responding to the said submissions, Senior Advocate Ramesh Gupta said, “My Lords, 35 lakh people took the holy dip during the Maha Kumbh recently.”

The court asked Gupta to refrain from such a statement. “It’s not a public platform Mr Gupta, it’s a court of law,” the bench said and posted the matter for further hearing on April 15. ILNS/ANB/RJ
