The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Thursday termed the ban as anti-women, unconstitutional and demanded that Jama Masjid's administration change its decision.
The RSS-affiliate also demanded that authorities take swift action to "tighten the noose" around those involved in putting up such notices outside the main gates of the mosque.
The notices, which have no date, came up a few days ago outside the three main entry gates, sources in the famed mosque's administration said. However, it has come to attention only now. Questioning the notices, VHP national spokesperson Vinod Bansal contended that Jama Masjid is a protected monument and comes under the jurisdiction of the Archaeological Survey of India.
"Here, Muslim women are being deprived of their rights to offer namaz on the basis of their gender. The constitutional authorities should take swift action to tighten the noose around those anti-women elements who were involved in banning entry of girls into the mosque.”
