Indian Awaaz Story: Clash Erupts as DDA Demolish A Mosque in Delhi
By Abdul Bari Masoud

New Delhi, January 12 Several people have been injured following indiscriminate use of force by the Delhi police near Nizamuddin area here on Wednesday (Jan 12). Police lathicharged and lobbed teargas shells to disperse hundreds of people protesting against the demolition of an old mosque in Jangpura near Nizamuddin in South-East Delhi.

The demonstration was led by local MLA Tarvinder Singh Marva who said that said that mosque was not an illegal structure as claimed by the DDA and the Delhi police. As the MLA along with local people tried to cross the police barricades, the police started using extensive force indiscriminately. Some journalists including this correspondent also got injured in the lathicharge. Hundreds of people were trying to march towards the demolition spot and offer noon prayer around 1 PM.

A senior police official said that police resorted to lobbing teargas shells and using some force after people broke the barricades and tried to march towards the demolished premises.

The demolition of the mosque was carried out by Delhi Development Authority (DDA) at around 6 AM amidst heavy security arrangements. According to Mangej Singh, Deputy Director (DDA), the religious structure was built illegally on DDA land and was demolished after a committee approved it.

However the Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid Ahmad Bukhari has said that the mosque was built on the waqf land and it was mentioned in the official gazette. Bukhari said if DDA didn’t resolve the issue within two days, he would lead Friday prayer along with thousands of people near the demolished mosque.
