    The PM had pleaded on Wed with folded hands for everyone to stay indoors for the next 3 weeks. But these guys here have been pampered with all the leniency in the previous regime. So thought they could get away with anything. Anyways good move by the cops. No one should be spared.

    Very interesting. Even hard core fundamentalists are now with the police.

    Crux: when one's own self is in danger, no religious rights, human rights, fundamental rights, freedom of speech, human dignity, freedom of expression, etc matter.

    Education is very important. We should understand and able to create self respect in our religion. Police also poor and helpless how much they can control. Donne tatoo mandatory at this stage for all.

    I wonder how you can explain to people about the seriousness of large gathering at this time. Stop everything. Pooja, namaz, mass, wedding, birthday, anniversary of all kinds. Stop and pray from your home with your heart, if you have walked according to God's will so far in your life, God surely will listen to your prayers.

    Many a times police also violating their own rules. Book the head of the mosque committee who call for congressional prayer instead beating the innocents. There are plenty of police brutality getting viral on social media since lockdown .

    But persuading people rather than beating them into submission requires thoughtful, compassionate leadership that understands how to convey that they should be staying indoors is for their own good. And we are severely lacking for compassionate leadership right now.

    The Indian Police must understand that coronavirus cannot be beaten with a lathi.

    A female post graduate doctor was slapped by Telangana police ACP yesterday while she was attending night duty, she was abused saying "with whom are you going to sleep at this time?"

    A 32-year-old man in west Bengal died Wednesday after allegedly being beaten up by the police for stepping out of his residence to buy milk, yet another example of how police across the country are using extreme force to punish people who break the lockdown rules.

    For more details or video clips Just Google or go down YouTube and browse police brutality during lockdown.

    I never blame all the police force if you can see my first post. But I do complain a bit the way sometime they handle the situation. Police squad on duty in my location are very kind and polite.. Seems they trained well and enough educated to tackle the violators. ..
    BTW Police also blame during Delhi riots, JNU and Jamia Millia incidents. You cant deny it.

    The Imam of the Mosque should be booked. It was his responsibility to ask the faithful to disperse. In the church the priest asked all the faithfuls to leave the premises immediately as per govt instructions. A single priest did his obligation and live telecast. In extreem situation even God will accept the prayers of the faithful from anywhere. The police did the right thing.

    The police have done the right thing.
    They do not understand the principles of Islam when in different circumstances. Blind belief is not allowed in Islam. One needs to read Quran and understand it to be a better Muslim.
    Inspire of Muslim religious scholars giving fatwa to pray at home, these people are still not following rules of the land.
    The trustees of the mosque must be booked
