Protesters block namaz ground again in Gurgaon, claim to make volleyball court
"We are sitting here quietly... but will not allow prayers. We will plan for a game here," one of those occupying the ground, Parmila Chahar was quoted as saying.
Another, Veer Yadav, said: "We will set up a net... will build a volleyball court here (and) children will play. Will not allow namaz, no matter what."
Visuals from the site showed people sitting in the morning occupying the ground claiming to make a volleyball court.
In the process, they prevented prayers from taking place.
Last week, Gurgaon authorities withdrew permission to offer namaz at eight of these "designated" sites.
The administration said this was after "objections" and warned that if similar "objections" were raised at other sites, "permission will not be given there".
