LUCKNOW: Muslim clerics welcomes Allahabad High Court’s order to remove loudspeakers from religious places in Uttar Pradesh.
Maulana Sufiyan, a Muslim Cleric, termed this order as a positive one and urged the government to take adequate steps without biasness.
Sufiyan Nizami said, “The Allahabad High Court’s order should be welcomed by everyone as it is in the interest of the nation. But if the government has to act it should first check on the loudspeakers used in private functions such as marriages and political rallies. The use of loudspeakers at religious places is done for a very limited period of time.”
In a bid to curb rising noise pollution, the Allahabad HC ordered the state police to remove loudspeakers installed at religious places in the state.
The court ordered the police to remove loudspeakers without any permission from authorities. The order added that loudspeakers can be installed on some occasions with prior permission.
