Muslim Scholar urges religious bodies to take note of SC guidelines to reduce loudspeaker volume

Bareilly (Uttar Pradesh): Muslim scholar and Secretary General of All India Tanzeem Ulama-e-Islam Maulana Shahabuddin Razvi Bareilvi on April 26 urged religious bodies to take note of Supreme Court and reduce the decibel of loudspeakers to ‘permissible’ level. “There is a necessity to think about the matter of loudspeaker volume coming from mosques and temples. Being a religious scholar, I request everyone that they should take note of the Supreme Court guidelines and reduce the volume of loudspeakers”, he said. He added, “No one needs to feel insulted as there will be no harm to their dignity. Rather it will be good for our society and favourable to the people living in cities and villages”. The Supreme Court’s June 2005 order had banned the use of loudspeakers and music systems in public between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. (except in cases of public emergencies) in July 2005, citing the serious effects of noise pollution on the health of those resident who live in such areas. Notably, the issue of Azan given on loudspeakers has been gaining traction ever since MNS chief Raj Thackeray gave an ultimatum for the removal of loudspeakers at mosques by May 03.
