Surjit Singh Yadav, Vice President of Hindu Sena, has approached the Supreme Court seeking intervention to oppose the petition seeking contempt action against officers of State of Haryana for their alleged inaction against the disruptions of namaz prayers in plots in Gurugram.

Yadav who also claims to be a farmer and social worker has also sought relief for directing the petitioners to refrain from offering namaz on public property in the Districts of Gurugram, Haryana.

It has been argued in the application that former Rajya Sabha MP Mohammad Adeeb (the petitioner in the contempt petition) has approached the Top Court to cover up his "communal misdeeds" and is trying to "blame Hindus and their peace-loving character".

"That the judgement rendered by this Hon 'ble Court in the case of Tehseen S. Poonawalla is law of the land and each and every citizen in respective caste and religion have to follow. Therefore, in grab of offering namaz prayer, they cannot create a situation which sets out a platform for others to lodge a protest. Indian society is a society of multi religious people and therefore, members of each community have to follow the principle of self-restraint to maintain law and order situation. The Applicant has experienced that the assembly of a large number of people at one place to show religious supremacy creates a situation for law and order problems. Therefore, the Petitioner and his associate must impose upon themselves self restraint from encroaching public land or public property for offering namaz prayer," the application states.

Referring to Quran Sharif, Ayat -11.114, Yadav in his petition has stated that in Ouran Sharif, there is no mention of offering namaz prayer in the afternoon. In this regard, he has further said in the application that it is crystal clear that Namaz in the afternoon is not supported by the Ayats of Quran Sharif and thus, Adeeb's claim is contrary to the Holy Quran.

The contempt petition has sought action against the Chief Secretary and the Director-General of Police of State of Haryana, Sanjeev Kaushal IAS and PK Agrawak IPS respectively.

 The contempt action is being sought on the argument that the Haryana authorities have failed to comply with the directions issued by the Supreme Court in Tehseen S. Poonawalla Vs. Union of India & Ors. In the said case, the Supreme Court had issued a slew of directions in 2018 to control and prevent the increasing number of hate crimes, including mob violence and lynching.

The contempt petition filed by former Rajya Sabha MP Mohammad Adeeb has submitted that in the few recent months, there has been a constant rise in incidents revolving around the Friday prayers offered by Muslims at the behest of certain "identifiable hooligans", who portray themselves falsely in the name of religion and seek to create an atmosphere of hatred and prejudice against one community across the city.
