The scholars from community, priest and religious leaders will take part in protest he added.
He said that the Wakf Board in its notice issued on October 24 to Mohiuddin Juma Masjid has declared that offering Juma prayers at the above masjid is “haram”. This statement is apparently against the Islamic ‘Shariah’ and Muslim community condemns this kind of violations by the Board, he said.
