Residents drag wakf board to court over prayers

Thursday December 22, 2011 11:09:08 PM, IANS

New Delhi: Residents of south Delhi's Jangpura area Thursday told the Delhi High Court that the Delhi Wakf Board and a charitable society failed to comply with the court's earlier order which allowed only 10 devotees to offer prayer at the site of a mosque razed by the Delhi Development Authority in January.

The board and Noor Charitable Society countered by saying they had complied with the court's order.

The Jungpura Residents Welfare Association (JRWA) presented some photographs of the area before Justice Vipin Sanghi and said that "though the banner and the tin structure have been removed, occupation is still there".

Disagreeing with the contentions of JRWA, counsel for the board and the charitable society said that all structures from the site had been removed.

The court after hearing both the parties ordered the board and charitable society to remove the box from the site and also directed to keep the prayer mats at some other place.

The court Dec 14 had pulled up the board and the charitable society for failing to comply with its earlier order.

DDA had earlier demolished the illegal structure constructed on public land in Jungpura area, leading to protests and stone-pelting by angry people.

The DDA assured the court that the Noor Charitable Society, which ran the mosque, could be given 400 square metre land just 100 metres away from where the previous structure stood.

The court was hearing a petition filed by advocate R.K. Saini on behalf of the residents.
