ACP (Old City) Ashok Kumar said the complaint has been sent to the administration.

They intend to create hatred in the society,” he alleged.

Many organizations also allocate space for Friday prayers. It takes just 15-20 minutes,” said Ahmed, adding that traveling 2-4 km to offer namaz during working hours and then return is not convenient.
ACP (Sadar) Aman Yadav said that meanwhile in Sector 47 Namaz was offered peacefully and without any disturbance on this Friday. Protests in the area were called off earlier this week after the local RWA chief met the Deputy Commissioner of Gurugram.
