Uttar Pradesh: Hindu, Muslims come together against 3 am ‘sehri’ call

, 1:03 AM IST

Bareilly: Hindu and Muslims of Bareilly unite against the announcements of loudspeakers for the 3 am ‘sehri’ call daily during Ramzan.

According to reports, people from both communities in the Premnagar have requested the local administration to take action.

“I have instructed the superintendent of police (city) to investigate the matter and take action in accordance with the Supreme Court’s guidelines. Either the loudspeakers will be uninstalled from the religious places or the caretakers will have to play them in a low volume,” additional district magistrate (ADM) Alok Kumar told TOI.

“Whether it is a temple or a mosque, no religion allows bothering others. My father is a heart patient who underwent an open heart surgery just last year. He and my 73-year-old mother have not slept peacefully for days. There are infants in every house,” UPUVPM district president Shobhit Saxena said.

“They said Ramzan is about helping others, not causing distress,” he said.

Seven Muslim families were among the complainants as well against the use of the loudspeaker.
