Right-wing organisations disrupted namaz at several places, police said. Hindutva organisations have been trying to stop Friday prayers in Gurgaon over the last two weeks alleging that some people were trying to grab land in a bid to merge it with a mosque.
Members of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal, Hindu Kranti Dal, Gau Rakshak Dal and Shiv Sena arrived at the spots where people had assembled to offer Friday prayers.
Ritu Raj, a member of a Hindutva organisation, claimed that they organised a havan at Wazirabad to stop the namaz.
They allegedly shouted slogans like Jai Shri Ram and Radhe Radhe to disrupt the namaz.
The problem had first surfaced when six men disrupted Friday prayers at a vacant plot in Gurugram’s Sector 53 on April 20. About 500 men were gathered on the government-owned plot when the accused disrupted the namaz with chants of Jai Shri Ram and Radhe Radhe.
