No Namaz at Taj Mahal : Supreme Court

New Delhi, July 9 : The Supreme Court on Monday has refused to permit Namaz at the world heritage site, Taj Mahal.
Thus, Muslims  won’t be able to offer Juma namaz or Friday prayers at Mumtazi Masjid situated on the monument’s premises.
The Court ruled “the historic Taj Mahal is one of the seven wonders of the world, so it should be kept in mind that no Namaz will be offered there.There are other places where one can do that.”

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh-Akhil Bhartiya Itihaas Sankalan Samiti has been demanding that Friday prayers at Taj Mahal should be banned.


In June this year, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) allegedly vandalised the gate of Taj Mahal in Agra Uttar Pradesh. The media reports further claim that the entrance gate of Taj Mahal was vandalised by 20 to 30 VHP workers on June 10. Workers of VHP protested outside the gate of Taj Mahal, as they claimed that the gate is blocking the entrance of the 400-year-old temple nearby.

The VHP protesters were furious because of Taj Mahal gate which blocked 400-year-old Siddheshwar Mahadev temple route.
