Many right-wing outfits disrupted Friday prayers in Gurugram
Namaz was disrupted in Gurugram in as many as 10 locations, said multiple reports. However, there was no violence outbreak. The right-wing outfits shouted 'Jai Shri Ram', and 'Bangladeshi wapas jao' at congregations in areas like IFFCO Chowk, Udyog Vihar, Leisure Valley Park and Mall Mile on MG Road. They claimed Muslim worshippers didn't have permission to offer namaz at public places.
