“Yahan namaz nahi hougi,” says Hindutva extremists as they attack Muslim worshippers
The Friday prayers at Gurgaon’s mosque were attacked by Hindutva extremists, as Muslims were forced to vacate the area. Reports suggest nearly two dozen Muslims offered the namaz as Hindutva extremists continued chanting, “Bharat mata ki jai.”
One of the mosques in Gurgaon was attacked by the extremists chanting slogans, “yahan namaz nahi hougi” before pushing away the Imam. While the local police tried controlling the Hindutva extremists. On the other hand, the representative of the Muslim community has urged the government to take notice of the repeated violence in Haryana’s Gurgaon. The Muslim community has claimed that the Hindutva extremists have also disturbed the community’s harmony.
