Gurugram’s Sadar Bazar Gurudwara Allows Muslims To Offer Namaz After Namaz Sites Confiscated

On Wednesday, a local association of Gurudwara announced that it would open its doors to allow namaz with the number of sites for Friday prayers having waned by almost half in the city because of protests by right-wing outfits and some local residents over the past few weeks.

Five Gurudwaras are affiliated to Gurudwara Singh Sabha Committee of Gurgaon at Sadar Bazar Sabzi Mandi, Sector 39 (close to Medanta), Sector 46, Jacobpura and Mannequin City, stated it’ll strategy the administration to seek permission to permit Muslims to supply namaz in small teams without compromising on Covid protocols.

According to the reports of Times Of India, Harry Sindhu from the Gurudwara committee said, “It was disturbing to learn about the opposition to namaz in open areas. The doors of our gurdwaras are always open to everyone. If Muslims are facing problems in finding a place for Friday prayers, they are welcome to offer namaz in gurdwaras.

Further, Sherdil Singh Sidhu, president of the Gurudwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Sabzi Mandi, Gurgaon, said, “A gurdwara is the house of the Guru. People from all communities are welcome to come here and pray. If the Muslim community is facing problems in praying at designated sites, they can offer prayers in the gurdwaras. The doors of gurdwaras are open to all.”

Moreover, Khurshid Rajaka  who is chairman of Muslim Rashtriya Manch, said it will help establish peace and harmony. He further added, “Everyone should take inspiration from the Sikh community and help people from other faiths conduct their religious activities without any animosity.” “There have been instances in the past too where Muslims have offered namaz at religious places of other communities,” he added

After this, co-founder of Gurugram Nagrik Ekta Manch, Altaf Ahmad, felt ‘grateful’ and said he and other Muslims in the city admired the “gracious offer” from Gurdwara Singh Sabha Committee. “This is a true example of brotherhood where people from multiple faiths have come forward to defeat divisive forces who have been spreading hatred and communal disharmony in the city over the past two 2 months,” said Ahmad. A day earlier, a Hindu man had given a small commercial space to the Muslim community for namaz.

“I am confident that more and more people across communities will come forward to offer their private properties where Muslims can pray every Friday for 30 minutes,” said Ahmad, adding that he hoped the Haryana government will take cognizance and allot land to Muslims at the earliest for mosques so they can “pray with dignity”.
