GES-2017: Milad-un-Nabi meeting near Taj Falaknuma postponed

Hyderabad: On the eve of Global Entrepreneurial summit, the south zone police has persuaded and convinced the Muslim group to postpone its public meeting on November 28 in the vicinity of Taj Falaknuma.

According to the news published in the Deccan chronicle, the Public meeting of the muslim group was to be attended by 7000 people. Every year at Falaknuma some local Muslims celebrate Milad-un-Nabi, birthday of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) where Islamic Scholars deliver sermons.

“This year, they had applied for the permission and it was accorded. But as soon we came to know about the dinner being hosted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for Ms. Ivanka Trump and other delegates, we approached the organisers and they agreed to postpone it. We are grateful to them,” said V Satyanarayana, DCP (South).  The DCP also said that “The huge gathering posed a security threat as any mischief element might mingle with the crowd and spread unrest.”

Mr. Syed Saifuddin, one of the organisers of the public meeting, said that Islam spreads the message of peace and harmony. “When the police approached us we readily agreed as we all want peace to prevail,” he said.

Mr. Syed Saifuddin also said that the next date of the Public meeting will be decided to ensure that it avoids any clash with religious events or occasions of other religious communities.
