The Noida police has announced that public spaces such as parks can’t be used for religious activities.
The police have also gone ahead and told multinational companies in Sector-58 to direct their employees not to offer Friday prayers in park.
The notice also warns the companies that they will be held liable for any violation by their employees.
But the companies have now plans to approach the court.
After the notice created a furore in Noida’s industrial hub, the police went into damage-control mode and said that the notice isn’t religion-specific.
It was only last week that at least 12 MNCs got the notice that specifically said nobody is allowed offer Friday prayers in the park.
Earlier this year, right-wing organisations had disrupted namaz at several places in Gurgaon.
The activists alleged that some people were trying to grab land in a bid to merge it with a mosque.>
