Police have arrested dozens of right-wing Hindus in India for allegedly disrupting Friday gatherings of Muslims.

According to Indian media, Hindu groups in the northern city of Gargaon on the outskirts of New Delhi have been pressuring authorities for weeks to stop Muslims from offering Friday prayers in open spaces.

Additional police were deployed for Friday prayer gatherings on Friday, October 29, where police arrested 30 members of the chanting crowd.

On the other hand, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party, the BJP, has been criticized for inflicting atrocities on the 200 million Muslim population, while the Modi government has denied such allegations, saying people of all faiths have equal rights. ۔

The town of Gurgaon in the state of Haryana is also known as Gurgram and is ruled by the BJP.

This is not the first time such an incident has taken place in the city, where several multinational companies are present. In 2018, many in the majority Hindu community raised similar objections to Muslims praying in the open.

At the time, district officials mediated between communities and identified about 35 open spaces for Muslims to offer Friday prayers.

According to NDTV, many of the detainees on Friday carried placards reading “Gargaon Administration, Wake Up.”
