Muslims restrained from offering Eid namaz

Dhampur: Muslims of Nanhera village in Dhampur were deprived of offering Eidul Adha namaz and sacrifice in time because of agitation by mischief mongers when Muslims wanted to offer namaz at a newly built Eidgah.
The old Eidgah in the village was illegally occupied by Dalits about seven years ago and from that time they were compelled to offer Eid namaz in different mosques and madrasahs.

This year one Zakir Husain donated one-and-half bigha of his agricultural land for constructing an Eidgah but when Muslims of the village and neighbouring areas assembled there for offering Eid namaz, people of the other community reached there and raised a great hue and cry and did not allow them to offer namaz. Their argument was that without government approval they won’t allow Muslims to construct the Eidgah. In protest, Muslims left the Eidgah and did not offer namaz nor sacrificed the animals. Later, the next day on the request of government authorities, they offered Eidul Adha namaz at other mosques and also sacrificed animals.

Government authorities too said that only on government’s written permission, Muslims will be allowed to construct the Eidgah and offer namaz there. Muslims here argue that when it is the personal land of Zakir Husain and there is no dispute about it, no one has got the right to stop the construction of Eidgah there. (Rashtriya Sahara [Urdu], February 5, 2004)
