It was hearing a plea by waqf board
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked the Centre if the Delhi Disaster Management Authority’s (DDMA) order prohibiting all kinds of gathering in the wake of increasing COVID-19 cases was being implemented across the board in the Capital. Justice Mukta Gupta directed the Centre to indicate the manner in which the April 10 prohibitory orders of the DDMA were being followed and whether any kind of social, religious, political or festive gathering was being permitted. The direction came while the court was hearing a plea by the Delhi Waqf Board to reopen the Nizamuddin centre where the Tablighi Jamaat congregation are held. It has been locked since March 31 last year.
