CDA to demolish mosque and graveyard

ISLAMABAD: Despite severe protests by clerics and the public, Capital Development Authority (CDA) has completed arrangements to demolish another mosque and a graveyard for a road-expansion project in Islamabad.

The CDA has decided to demolish the Jamia Masjid Hanafia Ghousiaul Aman near Rawal Dam Chowk and more than 20 graves of the cemetery on Margalla Town Mor for Faizabad–Convention Centre Murree Road project.

However, the CDA saved a small piece of land of the Islamabad Club and hotels in the way of the expansion project by removing the green belt. The CDA earlier demolished Jamia Masjid Ibne Abbas for a project. online

Pakistanis are so concerned about the injustice being done to the Moslem and totally indignant over the demolition of the Babri Mazjid in India.

Sad, that these Islamists are so less vociferous when the same is done in their country and more so, removing a graveyard and insulting the dead in a most un Islamic manner.

But then all is fine if done in an Islamic country, right?

Devotees make way for Road project (http://cities.expressindia.com/fullstory.php?newsid=198828)
Trustees assure peace as officials get ready to break religious structures

Express News Service

Mumbai, August 28: ABOUT 23 religious structures—temples, mosques, gurudwaras and some madarsas—are set to make way peacefully for the construction of the delayed Santacruz-Chembur Link Road, a key road component of the Mumbai Urban Transport Project (MUTP).
“With all issues sorted out, trustees of all religious structures affected by the Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road and the Santacruz Chembur Link Road have agreed to the relocation,” said R K Sonawane, relief and rehabilitation chief for the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA).



At a meeting at MMRDA last week, trustees of various institutions affected by the road projects agreed to the relocation and volunteered to maintain peace in the vicinity of demolitions. The meeting was chaired by the Joint Metropolitan Commissioner Milind Mhaiskar, also project director for MUTP.

Already, the MMRDA has moved over a dozen religious structures from alongside Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road. Nineteen religious structures are still to be demolished along Santacruz Chembur Link Road.

With no government or World Bank policy on rehabilitating roadside temples or mosques, moving them was another reason for the slow pace of work on SCLR and JVLR. “Some of these structures are being relocated to various rehabilitation sites,” said Sonawane.

At Rahul Nagar near Tilak Nagar, the MMRDA is proposing to rebuild a gurudwara, a temple, a mosque and a church on a single plot, with the active involvement of the trustees.

But if in Gujerat, then there have to be objections by the pious Moslems as was when the dargah was demolished to make way for the road along with Hindu temples too!

So all civic activity should stop and evil Gujaratis must live in squalor? Like Mumbaikars do under Sena encroachments(who will cite historical grievances againist moslems and build makeshift temples :rolleyes: ).
