Two men and women ended up arrested right after they entered the Lulu Shopping mall in Lucknow on Saturday and begun reciting the Hanuman Chalisa, law enforcement stated.

At the very least 15 some others had been detained for making a ruckus when making an attempt to enter the buying shopping mall.

Confirming the enhancement, Deputy Commissioner of Law enforcement (South) Gopal Krishna Choudhary explained, “Two persons entered the shopping mall, sat on the ground and started out indicating spiritual prayers. They ended up arrested just after staying handed over to the police by the mall’s safety workers.” Shortly soon after the duo had been held, associates of a suitable-wing team attempted to enter the shopping mall. They far too have been detained by police and unveiled with a warning not to make a ruckus.

This arrives soon after police lodged an FIR underneath sections 153A (advertising and marketing enmity among unique groups) and 295A (deliberate act meant to outrage religious feelings) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against a team of unknown people who allegedly available namaz at the shopping mall not long ago.

A controversy broke out immediately after a movie purportedly exhibiting a team of persons presenting namaz at the mall surfaced on social media.

A appropriate-wing outfit had objected to individuals giving namaz inside the mall and sought authorization from the authorities worried to recite the Hanuman Chalisa there, which was declined.

The case was registered on a grievance from the reps of the mall, who claimed that these noticed in the online video had been not their employees members.

The shopping mall authorities also put up notices across the assets on Friday, declaring “no religious prayers will be permitted in the mall”.

The shopping mall was inaugurated by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on July 10. It has been opened by the Abu Dhabi-based Lulu Group, led by Indian-origin billionaire Yussuf Ali M A.
