Lucknow: Imam-e-Jumma, Maulana Kalbe Jawad announces postponement of Friday prayers at Shahi Asafi Mosque till next announcement, in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court on Thursday allowed 50 people to offer prayers at Nizamuddin Markaz mosque, five times a day, subject to guidelines issued by authorities concerned during the holy month of Ramadan.
The mosque was closed for devotees after the Tablighi Jamaat congregation last year. A single-judge bench of Justice Mukta Gupta relied upon June 2020 Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) guidelines that permitted the opening of places of worship and religious places.
The high court noted that there was no direction to close the places of worship under the latest DDMA guidelines issued on April 10.
