No call for protest given by Masjid, said Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid.

There was no call for protest from the Masjid committee. In fact, yesterday when people were planning to protest we clearly said to them that there is no call for the protest from Jama Masjid (Committee), said Shahi Imam, Jama Masjid, Delhi.

We don't know who are the ones protesting, I think they belong to AIMIM or are Owaisi's people. We made it clear that if they want to protest, they can, but we will not support them, said Shahi Imam, Jama Masjid, Delhi

People protested at Jama Masjid against the statements of suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma and expelled BJP leader Naveen Kumar Jindal. We have removed the people from there. The situation is under control now, said Delhi Police
