Many of Gurugram’s historic masajid continue to be illegally occupied or are deserted as locals who reside in the area oppose prayers to be held by the Muslims in them.
The Haryana Waqf board has previously submitted a list of 19 masajid in Gurugram District that are illegally encroached, which is in a way forcing the Muslims to pray in the open.
Many of such masajid in places not far from Gurugram District have already been demolished and the ones inside Gurugram may too share the same fate.
The three-domed masjid of Badshahpur situated close to the Gurugram-Sohna road is being used as a godown. A family has illegally occupied the masjid that sits on a prime piece of land for decades. They are dismantling and amending parts of the historic structure that is under the purview of the Haryana Waqf Board at will.
