“Islam Taking Over Streets is Wrong” – Indian Lawmaker. Can we park our cars in Mosques if Muslims can pray in our streets?

An Indian MP has lashed out at praying Muslim groups blocking roads and public places, saying that Muslim worshipers in India should pray in mosques and that those who block public streets, while offering Namaz should be dealt with. The Indian lawmaker has said this as the country’s minority Islamic community celebrates Eid-al-Fitr.

Some religious practices of local Muslims cause inconveniences to residents of Indian and many other cities, Bhola Singh, who was recently re-elected to the Indian parliament has said. The lawmaker from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) is urging Muslims to restrict their prayers to specialized places of worship.

“A place has been designated for expressing your devotion. Roads should not be blocked. If it happens, it is wrong. Action should be taken.”

The politician believes that Hindus celebrating their festivals are, by contrast, not disturbing anyone.

While debates on street prayer assemblies are not new, they have emerged as the Indian Islamic community is celebrating the Eid-al-Fitr festival, which marks the culmination of the holy month of Ramadan. India’s latest census in 2011 showed that the country has over 172 million Muslims, around 14% of the entire population.

Social media users in overwhelming numbers supported Bhola Singh’s views, agreeing that prayers should be kept private while no community has the right to disrupt public order.
