Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) – Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on 29th May 2022 that there will be no namaz on the streets in Uttar Pradesh. He said “You must have also seen how people get rid of the unnecessary noise they were coping with and how more than 70,000 mics and loudspeakers of various religious places which caused trouble to senior citizens, patients, infants and others have been either taken off or their voices limited to the prescribed premises. This in itself is an example of how small things like a mic, which would once be a cause for riots and anarchy or mutual tensions between two communities are now checked and voluntarily taken off. This has created new hope and trust in the minds of the people of the State. The new Uttar Pradesh of the new India is ready to take this trust ahead and assert its new identity very strongly”.

Yogi Adityanath noted that during the just concluded Ramazan, there was no namaz on roads in the State, and the festival was conducted peacefully along with Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanti. He said, “Today Uttar Pradesh is a riot-free State. This new Government in Uttar Pradesh has resumed its previous works in the State and taking them ahead. We celebrate the Ram Navami programmes in a peaceful manner. We celebrate the Hanuman Jayanti in a peaceful manner.
It is happening for the first time in Uttar Pradesh that in the month of Ramzan, on the last day of the month, the Alvida Namaz is not offered on the streets of Uttar Pradesh. Now there will be no namaz on the streets in Uttar Pradesh. For namaz, there is a fixed place, which is their house of worship – either a mosque or an Idgah. Dharmik (Religious) programmes will take place in their fixed places only. They will not take place on the streets”.
