Rights of the petitioner enshrined under Article 19(1) and Article 25 are being denied without any reasons - Allahabad HC

The Unlock 4 guidelines granted permissions for performing a Majlis (religious congregation) at the Waqaf Imambada Masjid issued by Allahabad HC.

The order was passed through a writ petition seeking permission to perform Majlis (usually performed for 10 odd days). The case was filed by a petitioner as the state authorities weren't allowing them to perform the religious congregation even though the unlock 4 guidelines pointed out that religious congregations upto 100 persons is permitted.

The court was also informed that no written order was passed by the authorities and the permission was denied orally.

The court concluded that the state authorities should not create any hindrance in holding of the Majlis by the petitioner.
