However police did not give permission for the protest. Heavy police force was deployed at Hajj House and tried to stop the protest dharna.

Tanzeem-e-Insaf, Deccan Protection Waqf Society and other organisations had decided to stage protest under the leadership of ex-MP (Rajya Sabha) Aziz Pasha. An application was submitted in the police station in this connection however the police refused to give permission for the dharna at the eleventh hour.
