Khadim suspended for ban on women from dargah during namaaz

Written by: Staff

Ajmer, June 17 (UNI) A Khadim (traditional server) in the Moinuddin Chisti shrine in Ajmer -- S F Hassan -- has been suspended for a month for banning women from the dargah at the time of Friday prayers as they purportedly distract men.

This decision was taken at an emergency meeting called by Anjuman, an organisation of the Khadims, here late last night.

Describing the matter as serious, the meeting unanimously decided to suspend Mr Hassan.

Anjuman also warned him against making such statements in the future.

S F Hassan along with President of Dargah committee Peerzada Sibli Qasim and Shrine director had banned women from the dargah at the time of prayers.

They opined that if a woman sits in front during the Friday prayers, then the man's prayer becomes unacceptable, and demanded separate place for women worshippers.
