Friday namaz prayers were not offered in any public place in Gurgaon as Muslim community leaders called on people to refrain from gathering in large congregations amid surging Covid cases in the district.

Last month, the Haryana government banned large congregations after five districts, including Gurgaon, experienced a spike in cases. A recent order issued by the Haryana State Disaster Management Authority declaring new curbs in more districts said: “Large congregations like all manner of public meetings, rallies, demonstrations, dharnas, etc. will be banned in the state.”

Observing that her act was an “affront to the dignity of women of a particular community and to the communal harmony of society”, a Delhi court denied bail to engineering student Neeraj Bishnoi, accused of creating an application using GitHub that hosted photos of more than 100 Muslim women without their consent, along with objectionable comments.

Metropolitan Chief Magistrate, Dr Pankaj Sharma, denied bail for 21-year-old Bishnoi, saying the facts revealed he had created the “Bulli Bai” app where “women journalists and celebrities of a particular community who are famous on social media are targeted and they are projected in a bad light with the aim of insulting and humiliating them through objectification”.
