The Delhi Police lawyer said this before Justice Jasmeet Singh, who will hear on April 1 the application by Delhi Waqf Board seeking to open the mosque during Shab-e-Barat and Ramzan.
The Delhi HC removed the restriction of putting a limit of 100 people on one floor and said it has been agreed that the management of the mosque will ensure that protocols and social distancing.
The court noted the statement of the counsel for Delhi Waqf Board that requisite application will be made to the SHO of Hazrat Nizamuddin Police Station immediately.
The court sought to know from the Centre why it was against reopening it fully daily when it was agreeable to open it during festivals.
Government counsel told the HC while hearing Delhi Waqf Board's plea to open the mosque in the view of Ramzan that the mosque is a case property and the petitioner has no locus to seek reopening.
