Mosque Destroyed In The Name Of Anti-Encroachment Drive, UP Sunni Waqf Board Alleges
Authorities in Uttar Pradesh's Barabanki district have bulldozed a century-old mosque in the name of 'removal of encroachment', the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board said on Tuesday.
The body — the mosque was registered with it — said the demolition in Ram Sanehi Ghat area was carried out against an order of the high court. The board added it will approach the high court against the action, demanded the mosque be reinstated and sought a judicial probe against officials involved in the drive.
