High Court Order On Markaz Case: High Court directs Delhi Police to hand over the keys of Hazrat Nizamuddin Markaz to Maulana Saad
New Delhi: High Court Order On Markaz Case– Delhi High Court has directed the Delhi Police to immediately hand over the keys of Hazrat Nizamuddin Markaz to Maulana Saad. The Delhi High Court today (on Monday) passed the order rejecting the intention of the Delhi Police to continue with the ban on public entry to the Tablighi Jamaat headquarters in Hazrat Nizamuddin Markaz.
In March this year, the court had also allowed prayers to be offered in the five floors of the mosque located in the Markaz during the month of Ramzan. At the same time, in the month of May, for the first time after March-2020, the High Court had given permission to the mosque management for public entry after the month of Ramzan. But public entry is prohibited in the madrasa and hostel here. (High Court Order On Markaz Case)
While hearing the matter, Justice Jasmeet Singh of the Delhi High Court said that “the keys of the Markaz will have to be handed over to the person from whom the keys were taken.” He said “You (Delhi Police) have taken possession from some person, then you should return the possession to that person. Here I am not deciding the ownership of any property, that is not the issue before me.” (High Court Order On Markaz Case)
In this case, the Delhi Police argued in the court that “the original owner has not come forward to take possession of the property. Under the Delhi Waqf Act it is the mutawalli who has to come forward and not the Delhi Waqf Board which is the petitioner.” (High Court Order On Markaz Case)
The Delhi High Court reprimanded the Delhi Police saying “Are you in possession? And in what capacity have you been in possession?” The court said that “the FIR was lodged under the Corona Epidemic Act itself, now it is over.” (High Court Order On Markaz Case)
