Mangaluru: A local masjid’s diktat barring orchestra and singing non-Islamic songs during marriage and other functions of community members has resulted in a few organisations raising objections to it. In an annual meeting on October 23, 2016, the Badriya Juma Masjid in Moodushedde on the outskirts of the city decided to bar community members from using orchestra and singing non-Islamic songs during nikah and other functions. The masjid committee members said that the khatib and the ustad of the masjid will not attend such events.
Reacting to the development, Democratic Youth Federation of India’s State president Muneer Katipalla said that the directive is un-Islamic and the masjid is forcing community members to behave only in a certain way.
However Shabbir Ahmed from Jamat-e-Islami Hind said that the Masjid is well within its right to issue such directions. "If a person is not interested in follow this directive, he can approach other masjids and get that khatib and ustad to perform nikah rites and other functions, he said.
