Mumbai: Bombay HC will refuse for mass petitions in the mosque, The Bombay High Court on Wednesday rejected authorization to a city-based trust to permit individuals to offer Namaz at its mosque in south Mumbai during the Ramadan time frame, saying the COVID-19 circumstance was “not kidding and basic” and the wellbeing of residents was more significant.
A get-away seat of Justices R D Dhanuka and V G Bisht noticed that the Maharashtra government thought that it was practical to force limitations to break the chain of transmission of the Covid.
“The option to celebrate or follow a strict practice is significant, yet what is more principal and of significance is public request and the wellbeing of residents,” the court said. It was hearing an appeal documented by the Jama Masjid Mosque Trust, looking for consent to permit individuals from the Muslim people group to offer the petitions five times each day at its mosque in south Mumbai.
Bombay HC will refuse for mass petitions in mosque, The applicant said “The mosque is spread over a section of land and around 7,000 individuals can gather at a time. Nonetheless, considering the COVID-19 circumstance, just 50 people would be permitted at a time to offer supplications during the Ramadan time frame and all security safety measures would be followed”, it said.
Extra Government Pleader Jyoti Chavan, showing up for the Maharashtra government, gone against the supplication and said the circumstance in Mumbai and Maharashtra is disturbing. “We can’t make a special case for any religion, particularly in this 15-day time span. We can’t face a challenge at this stage and all residents ought to collaborate,” Chavan said.
She said the public authority was not restricting any individual from rehearsing his/her religion, yet they ought to get it done in their homes. The court while excusing the supplication said it can’t consider the solicitor’s solicitation taking into account the COVID-19 circumstance which is “not kidding and basic in nature”.
