Leading Islamic scholar and head of Darul Uloom Karachi, Mufti Taqi Usmani tweeted against the orders of the demolition of Madina Mosque which is located at Tariq Road, Karachi.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered to demolish several structures that are constructed on unauthorised lands in Karachi including Madina Mosque.
The apex court found out the mosque was constructed on the land that was allotted for the park.
Mufti Taqi Usmani said in his tweet that the order of demolition of Madina Masjid on Tariq Road and construction of the park is totally “unjustified”. Thie mosque was constructed around 25 years ago on Tariq road and worshippers were using it since then.
The Islamic scholar also said that the decree is incomprehensible without first hearing from the residents living in the neighborhood regarding the demolition of the mosque. He demanded that the court should review their order immediately.
Meanwhile, authorities of Karachi held a meeting on Wednesday to implement the court orders since the construction of the mosque was done on illegal land.
