SC: NR Agra can’t offer prayers Taj Mahal

Supreme Court today dismissed a plea challenging the Agra authority’s order debarring non-residents of the city from offering Friday prayers at a mosque in the Taj Mahal complex.
A bench of Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan said that the Taj Mahal is one of the seven wonders of the world and people can offer their prayers at other mosques also.
The petition had challenged the January 24, 2018 order passed by the Additional District Magistrate Agra City which said that those who are not residents of Agra, would not be allowed to enter the mosque situated at the Taj Mahal for offering customary prayers on Fridays on security grounds.
