The ban on women entering the Jama Masjid in the Indian capital, New Delhi, alone or in groups has been lifted.
According to Indian media, there was a ban on women coming alone and in groups at the historic Jama Masjid in the capital New Delhi, which has now been lifted.
According to reports, after the ban was imposed, New Delhi’s Lt. Governor Vinay Kumar Saxena spoke to the Shahi Imam of the Jama Masjid on phone and requested him to lift the ban.
The report said that after the discussion between the Lieutenant Governor of New Delhi and the Shahi Imam, the ban on women entering the Jama Masjid alone and in groups has been lifted.
It should be noted that earlier there was a ban on women coming alone or in groups in the Jama Masjid of New Delhi, but there was no ban on women coming with their husbands or families.
In this regard, the spokesperson of Jama Masjid said that ‘the ban is only on women who come alone because they come here to meet boys and there are wrong actions including Tik Tok videos’.
He had said that a ban has been imposed to stop these activities because the mosque cannot be made a place to meet boys.
He said that this is not a park where dance or Tik Tok videos are made, the mosque is only a place of worship and we welcome those who come here to pray.
