Hyderabad: 200-year-old Eidgah situated at Trimulgherry in Secunderabad area is facing danger. All the attempts of the local Muslims to meet the officials of Wakf Board and Military have failed. The construction work of the boundary wall encircling Eidgah is in progress.
It is that this 200-year-old Eidgah which is located at 108 Bazar of Trimulgherry in Secunderabad was demolished in 2002. After strong protest by the Muslims, Eidgah was constructed at a different place. The local residents say that in the name of cordoning the compound wall, Eidgah is being included in the construction. Despite several representations to Wakf Board, no fruitful results are forthcoming. A delegation led by Mr. Kauser Pasha, President of Masjid-al-Hafeez met Malkajgiri MP, Mr. Malla Reddy and local MLA, Sainna and made several representations. In addition to it, a memorandum was submitted to Dy. General Officer Commanding, Mr. Ajay Singh Naigi and apprised him of the entire situation. The military officer assured the delegation of the local Muslims. Despite this assurance, construction work is in progress. The local residents have requested the State Govt. and military officials to take necessary steps to protect this old Eidgah.
