Haji Ali row: Forcibly entering a temple or mosque is wrong, first woman Qazi of UP to Trupti Desai

Lucknow: Condemning Bhumata Brigade president Trupti Desai for forcibly trying to enter the religious places of worship, the first woman Qazi of Uttar Pradesh on Friday said that such acts can cause communal tensions in the society.

Speaking to ANI a day after Desai was denied entry in Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai, Heena Zahir said, “Forcibly entering temple or mosque is not acceptable. She shouldn't act like this as we live peacefully.”

“Such acts can cause communal rift and fights and they should not be encouraged,” she added.

 

Desai had on Thursday tried to enter Haji Ali Dargah, but was stopped at main entrance.

As she reached the premises of the Dargah, the Mumbai Police did not allow her to get down from her car at the main entrance.

 

Desai, however, made another attempt to enter, but was once again stopped.

She had then decided to reach Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis' residence to do sit-in, but was detained along with her supporters on her way.
