‘Muslims being barred from celebrating I-Day’

 

New Delhi : The Hindu : 12-8-2018 - Anjuman-e-Haideri (AEH), the management body of a dargah near Jor Bagh, on Saturday alleged that the police were “barring Muslims from celebrating” Independence Day.

AEH general secretary Bahadur Abbas Naqvi alleged that despite obtaining permission from the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), the police have refused to grant consent.

However, the Delhi Police said that following previous orders of the Delhi High Court, status quo will be maintained.

“No person will be allowed to trespass the area restricted by the court. Except that particular land which has been barricaded, people are allowed to hoist the flag anywhere they want” said a senior police officer.

Mr. Naqvi however maintained that the area barricaded is not disputed land and demanded access to the area. “This conspiracy had happened last year as well and the chairman of the National Minorities Commission had to step in. The police not only have refused to accept the NDMC letter granting permission, but also threatened our representatives,” he said.

“They (Centre) want to project Muslims as anti-national. We appeal to PM Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to intervene and allow us to celebrate the Independence Day,” said Mr. Naqvi.
