Delhi Court allows prayers at demolished mosque site
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday directed the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to allow 10 devotees to offer prayers for the next two months at the site of a mosque that was demolished in south Delhi last week.
The court gave the devotees two months` time to work out a solution for amicably settling the issue between devotees and residents of Jangpura neighbourhood.
The DDA Jan 12 demolished the illegal religious structure constructed on public land in Jangpura area, leading to protests and stone-pelting by angry people.
The court had in 2006 issued contempt notice to the DDA on a petition of Jangpura Residents` Welfare Association (RWA) alleging that its direction to demolish the illegal structure had not been complied with.
