Prayer promotes peace, no tension should be allowed over it: Naqvi

Tuesday, May 08, 2018

New Delhi: Prayer promotes peace and no tension should be allowed in the name of worshipping god, Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said today after a minister in the Haryana government reportedly said namaz could not be offered anywhere in the open "with the intention of grabbing land".

The minority affairs minister also said the Haryana government was "very sensitive" towards the issue and that Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar himself had clarified that his regime was not against offering prayers. Naqvi, however, added that if there was any complaint in this connection, the issue had to be settled amicably.

"Prayer promotes peace and not tension. Hence, no tension should be allowed in the name of prayer. According to provisions, prayers are to be performed at authorised places," he told reporters here.

"The state government is sensitive (towards the issue) and the chief minister has also clarified that they are not against offering prayers. But if anybody is complaining, it is better to settle the issue amicably," Naqvi added.
