NEW DELHI - Largest Indian state bans "Namaz" offering at public places in yet another act against Muslims.
Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police Om Prakash Singh on Wednesday declared that a state-wise ban would be imposed on offering of Namaz at public places. The top cop said that no permission would be granted for such gathering in any part of Uttar Pradesh.
According to the DGP, such directive is already in place in Aligarh and Meerut and the same will be extended to all cities and towns in the state.
In December 2018, a similar directive was issued by the Gautam Budh Nagar police.
The police had issued an order directing the managers of industrial units and multi-national companies to restrict their employees from offering prayers in open public spaces in Sector 58, which caused inconvenience to the general public.
