· Congress leaders submit a representation to RR Dist Collector over the demolition of Masjid-e-Khaja Mahmood
Hyderabad, August 3 (Hydnow): Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Minorities Department Chairman Shaik Abdullah Sohail, along senior leaders Osman Al Hajiri, Mohammed Riyaz and others, on Wednesday, submitted a representation to Ranga Reddy District Collector D. Amoy Kumar demanding action against the illegal demolition of Masjid-e-Khaja Mahmood in Green Avenue Colony, Shamshabad in the wee hours of August 2, 2022.
Abdullah Sohail, in his representation, said that the Masjid-e-Khaja Mahmood was constructed in 2016 by the residents of Green Avenue Colony, Shamshabad and prayers were being performed regularly ever since its construction. “All necessary permissions were taken for the construction of the mosque. A case about the dispute over the mosque land is reportedly pending in court.
However, instead of waiting for the court orders, some anti-social elements, in connivance with some officials of the Shamshabad Municipal Corporation, illegally demolished the mosque. The demolition was done in such secrecy that all roads leading to the mosque site were barricaded. The houses of local Muslims were locked from the outside. The entire illegal operation was carried out as if they were raiding an enemy land,” he said.
Describing the demolition of the mosque as highly condemnable, the Congress leader suspected the involvement of the land mafia behind the demolition. Further, he said that the demolition of the mosque appeared to be a part of a major conspiracy to incite communal violence and disturb law and order.
“We request you to kindly take immediate action in this regard. We request you to permit immediate reconstruction of the mosque at the original site,” he demanded while adding that the State Government must reconstruct the mosque by bearing the entire cost. He also demanded serious action against all those involved, including the officials of Shamshabad Municipal Corporation and local police, responsible for the demolition.
“Inaction or delay in action in this regard would set a wrong precedent and the anti-social elements and land mafia would keep more places of worship. Consequently, the peace, communal harmony and the entire law and order situation of Telangana will get disturbed,” he said. (Hydnow)
Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
