Malakpet: Leaders representing different religious groups of Muslims have resolved to represent the matter of Ek Khana Masjid, which was allegedly demolished by the GHMC in Amberpet in April, by personally meeting Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao.
At the meeting organised by the Tehreek Muslim Shabban at its office in Azampura on Saturday, various organisations including Jamaat e Islami, Jamait-ul-Ulema, Sunni Ulema Board, Jamiat-e-Alhe-Hadees and Alame Jamiat-ul-Mashaiq resolved to demand that the State government grant permission to offer namaz at Masjid-e-Ek Khana in Amberpet, which was demolished by GHMC in April.
The Muslim religious heads and Islamic scholars also decided to meet Chief Secretary, Home Minister, GHMC Commissioner and MPs (Hyderabad and Secunderabad) and discuss about the issue.
Speaking to The Hans India, Mushtaq Malik, the president of Tehreek Muslim Shabban, said that though the Masjid-e-Ek Khana, which was demolished by GHMC, was already registered with the Telangana State Wakf Board, it was illegally demolished. The land on which Masjid was located did not have any title dispute either. "Therefore, there should be a permission for offering Namaz. If there is any law and order issue, the Telangana government should solve the issue," he pleaded.
Mushtaq Malik also said that in 2018 the TSWB gave a letter to the GHMC and also informed them if the road widening was an issue, the Wakf Board would discuss the issue with authorities. But without any notice and consultations ith Wakf Board, the GHMC suddenly demolished the Masjid in late night hours.
"Whether it is intentional or unintentionally, it is violation of law. We demand that a case be registered on the GHMC officers who demolished the Masjid. The police still have not booked any FIR against the illegal demolishing case. The TS Home Minister should take necessary action against them," he demanded.
