Writing a letter to AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi has asked him to take action against officials responsible for demolition of several mosques in AP over the past one year.

In the letter he has expressed concern over demolition of age-old mosques, under the pretext of road widening. He has mentioned the demolition of the centuries-old Masjid-e-Abu Bakr, Hazrat Hussain Shah Quadri and Syed Shah Quadri dargah and masjid, Jama Masjid, Hazrat Shah Zahoor Musafir Dargah, Tarapet Masjid and Jannatul Firdous graveyard in Vijayawada, in the name of road widening works and construction of flyovers and bridges.

Mr. Owaisi told the CM that these arbitrary and uncalled-for and unnecessary demolitions of over four century–old mosques, dargahs and graveyards by Vijayawada Municipal Corporation and Krishna district authorities over the last year have caused unease among the Muslim community.

He alleged that ignoring the pleas of AP Waqf Board and protests and resentment of local Muslims, the authorities have resorted to these arbitrary demolitions in utter violation of laws. He also alleged that the authorities willfully ignored court orders in these cases.
