MUSLIMS DEMAND VELLORE FORT MOSQUE TO BE OPENED FOR PRAYERS

Inside India

About 10,000 Muslims under the banner of Tamilnadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK) on May 9 marched towards the famous Vellore Fort to demand that the 250-year old Nawab Masjid located with the Fort be opened for prayers. Muslims of Tamilnadu have been making this demand but the government authorities have turned a deaf ear to it.
They were however prevented from entering the Fort, as a result of which they offered prayers on the road outside the Fort.

More than two thousands of them courted arrest and were later released.
