The Gurugram administration on Tuesday revoked permission to perform namaz at eight of the 37 approved locations. According to an official statement from the district administration, the licence was revoked following a protest from nearby residents and the RWA. Bengali Basti in Sector 49, V Block of DLF Phase-3, Surat Nagar Phase-1, the fringes of Kherki Majra village, and Daulatabad village near Dwarka Expressway, near Ramgarh village in Sector 68, near DLF Square Tower, and from Rampur village to Nakhrola Road are among the eight locations.

The notification read the administration consent is required for namaz in any public and open venue. It added that namaz could be offered at any mosque, Eidgah, or private or designated location. The government stated that if locals object to other sites, authorization will not be granted to serve namaz there. The district administration also stated that Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner Yash Garg had formed a committee comprised of a subdivisional magistrate, an assistant commissioner of police, and members of religious organizations and civil society groups to discuss the issue and identify future locations for namaz.
