Tablighi Jamaat team beaten up, construction of mosque prevented in Haryana


New Delhi: Earlier it happened in Kalati village, now Muslims in Atali village are facing siege-like situation as the majority community is dictating its terms for cohabiting in this Haryana village. Police are refusing to register FIR by Muslims in this regard.

Atali, the village falling in Vallabhgarg tehsil in Faridabad district of Haryana, has set a new precedent by thrashing its Muslims on the very day of Deepawali. Instead of coming to rescue of Muslims, local police are forcing them to compromise with miscreants.

Like more than a dozen other places in Haryana, the tussle started in Atali over construction of a mosque. A team of Tablighee Jama’at was beaten inside the decadent Mosque adjacent to Muslims graveyard in the village. The Mosque has a tin shed but whenever proper construction is mooted, local majority community starts putting obstruction to it. October 17 scuffle left about 16 persons injured.

Muslims have purchased the land on which this Mosque is constructed but majority community claims it belongs to Gaon Samaj. The dispute is under hearing in a lower court in Faridabad. In fact, the miscreants here do not allow Muslims to celebrate their festivities as per their own customs as Muslim population in this 10,000 strong village is not more than 10 percent.

On Monday, a delegation of the village approached RJD MLA from Okhla Asif Mohammad Khan who rushed to Vallabhgarh Jame’ Masjid where thousands of people had thronged to narrate their horrors. Mr. Asif took injured Tablighee members to DCP office where SDM and other officers were already present.

The delegation led by the RJD MLA has demanded the authorities to conduct MLC for injured persons, register FIR against the culprits. The delegation also said that no compromise is agreeable with miscreants. The majority community in Atali has forced the condition that no Tablighee team should ever visit the village. “If FIR is not registered, a demonstration will be held in Vallabhgarh in leadership of Shahi Imam Syed Ahmad Bukhari.”, Asif Khan announced.
