As per an official statement from the district administration, the permission was canceled after an objection from local people and RWA.

The Gurdwara association of Sadar Bazar in Gurugram on Friday decided to offer its premises for Namaz prayers to Muslim devotees. The move came following objections over the offering of namaz in public and open places. Earlier, the Gurugram administration had withdrawn permission to offer namaz at eight out of 37 designated sites.

Incidentally, the move comes just one day ahead of Gurupurab.

“It’s ‘Guru Ghar’, open for all communities with no discrimination. There shouldn’t be any politics here. Basement is now open for Muslim brothers who want to offer ‘Jumme ki namaz’,” said Sherdil Singh Sidhu, President, Gurudwara Guru Singh Sabha, Sadar Bazar.

If there’s an open space, Muslims should be allowed to offer namaz. We shouldn’t fight over such petty issues. People who were offering namaz in open sought administration’s permission and those who had problems should have approached the administration before attacking them,” he added.

As per an official statement from the district administration, the permission was canceled after an objection from local people and RWA. On several occasions earlier, residents of Gurugram have complained and staged a protest against Friday namaz at a public ground.
