Demolished Hyderabad mosque will be rebuilt on same spot: AIMIM

Hyderabad: An AIMIM legislator said on Friday that the mosque demolished by municipal authorities will be rebuilt on the same spot where it was razed four days ago in Shamshabad on the outskirts of Hyderabad.

Telangana assembly member Kausar Mohiuddin, along with other local leaders of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and local residents offered Friday prayers at the same location in Green Avenue Colony where Masjid-e-Khaja Mahmood was located and demolished on Tuesday.

After the prayers, he said the mosque would be rebuilt in the same place. He claimed that on the representation of AIMIM President and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, the state government has allowed the reconstruction of the mosque.

Police had made tight security arrangements in the area to prevent any untoward incident. Only 50 people were allowed to offer Friday prayers.

The demolition of the mosque had triggered strong protests by local Muslims. AIMIM leaders had staged protests at the municipal office and the office of Rangareddy district Collector.

Taking a serious note of the demolition, Owaisi made a representation to the government. The Municipal Administration department had formed a three-member committee, which visited the municipal office and the place where the mosque was demolished. It was made clear after the panel's visit that the government will not create hurdles in the reconstruction of the mosque.

The management committee of the mosque along with AIMIM leaders had handed over all documents relating to the approval for the construction of the mosque to the municipal officials. They also demanded strong action against the officials responsible for the demolition.

The mosque was constructed three years ago and residents say daily five times Namaz including Friday prayers were being performed regularly.

On Tuesday morning, the municipal authorities demolished the mosque by deploying bulldozers in the presence of the police. The action was taken on the complaint of a local resident that the place of worship was built without approval. However, the Muslim residents of the area claim that the mosque was built after obtaining all the permissions.
