A ‘namaz’ row erupted again as members of Hindu organisation Jai Bharat Mata Vahini reached a community namaz site at Gurugram’s Sector 40 and raised slogans.

Cops handled the situation and detained the national president of the organisation from the spot.

They had moved to administration seeking discontinuation of prayer at this site.

Dinesh Thakur, national president of Jai Bharat Mata Vahini, said that while namaz at open places is illegal the police promotes this and detained him illegally.

“I informed deputy commissioner and police commissioner through a memorandum that our organisation members will reach at the site of community namaz today because it is illegal. I also filed complaints earlier about the same but no action was taken. When I reached there, police detained me illegally. Our team members called a meeting and we decided our future strategy about open namaz,” added Thakur.

It was around 12:30 pm when the members of Hindu organisation reached at community namaz place in a park of Sector 40.

Soon Maulvi came there and police was called who detained Thakur and others and took them to Sadar police station.

“The organisation informed us earlier and to maintain peace and law and order we have detained him for some time. As per the complaint, we are verifying the facts,” said Inspector Virender Khatri, SHO of Sector 40 police station.
