Delhi, November 24: The administration of Delhi's famed Jama Masjid has put restrictions on the entry of girls’ whether alone or in groups.
Jama Masjid’s, the mosque's Shahi Imam on Wednesday said the order is not applicable to those coming to offer prayers.
"Jama Masjid mein ladki ya ladkiyon ka akele daakhla mana hai (The entry of a girl, or girls is not permitted in Jama Masjid)," reads the notice by the administration of the 17th century Mughal era monument that attracts thousands of devout as well as tourists.
Meanwhile, while addressing media, Jama Masjid's PRO Sabiullah Khan stated that "There is no restriction on girls/women coming with families, no restriction on married couples either."
"When women come alone, improper acts are done, videos get shot, this ban is to stop all of that. Making it a meeting point is not apt for religious places. No restrictions are there on families or married couples," added Khan.
