Hundreds of BJP workers gathered at the Assembly to express their displeasure with the Speaker's decision. Some BJP workers even tried to break the barricades put by the police to prevent them from entering the Assembly premises.

The police used water canons before resorting to lathicharge. BJP Jharkhand President Deepak Prakash reportedly sustained injuries on his arm.

    They do prayers everywhere. In rooms, railway tracks, roads, airports etc. Total nuisance. Appeasement by governments spells doom.

    Then why Poojas are performed in government offices or police stations? To tum logo ko Qhuda se pyaar hai aur hum ko nahi karna hai kya....

    Why prayers at places of study and work places whichever community may be! Unnecessary giving scope to create rift between brethren and communities? Working sincerely with love and dedication is also a greatest form of worship!

    For Muslims prayers are as important as we in take food regularly. We have to thank God 5 times a day compulsory without any excuses for whatever God Almighty has bestowed us for the day.. The problem is there are places where Masjid are too far, hence performing this compulsory duty becomes very difficult as travelling to and fro will take lot of time and will miss classes if studying or productivity hours if working in office or business. Only those who have prayers compulsion on daily basis can understand the ordeal. For those who worship once in a week or as and when interest arise and no specific way to strictly follow, such will not understand the importance of prayer hall and sometimes explaining them will b impossible. But BJP and Sangh Parivar, they protest coz they carry hatred towards Muslims and they will protest for whatever Muslims do. For them everything is wrong what Muslims are doing. There will arise a day when suppression crosses the limit, the fall of destruction for sure. History is the witness.

    Justification arrived from Talibani spokesperson with a threat too.. LOL These jokers have all funny reason to justify but if prayer is must then one should not involve in politics or any other work becausue things will have to move on. If there is emergency assembly meeting on flood or storm or enemy waging war , what will you do? Rush to pray? Grow up and decide what is important. Shun the activity that stops you from praying. .. for preaching, keep it to your ilk, they need to learn a lot on this Live and let other live.. Alas

    My dear, some of the practices are impossible in multi religious societies. When people are migrating to other countries, where such practices are not prevalent, it proves they can adjust to each other also without displeasing God. We too are called to pray and thank God always. If people can worry or hate while working and studying, surely they can thank God and praise him also while working.

    As a country, we should go beyond token "Sickalurism'. Why only Nammaz chambers? Install small temple and Chapel at the Assembly complex and possibly Gurudwara too! It's time to think as one, its the right time for a Uniform Civil Code, all are Indians and equal rights before law, NO APPEASEMENT!
