New Delhi, India, November 24, 2018: The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) took suo motu attention to media reports of restrictions on the entry of women to Jama Masjid, Delhi, without male companions.According to sources, a notice has been posted at the entrance to Jama Masjid, Delhi, which states, Jama Masjid me Ladki ya Ladkiyon ka akele dakhla mana hai.According to a press release issued on Thursday, the board prohibits the entry of women and girls into the Masjid who are not with male companions.The Delhi Commission of Women suggested that the ban be pulled.

Women have been coming to the Jama Masjid in Delhi for centuries to practice their religious duties without being restricted.According to the DCW, prohibiting women from freely entering and attending their religion in the mosque is unconstitutional and detrimental, because a place of worship should be open to everyone, regardless of their gender, according to the press release.The proposed regulation is deemed to be contradictory and against the ethos of the India Constitution.The commission was asked to provide the following information until November 28, 2022: Reasons for prohibiting the entry of women and girls in Jama Masjid without male companions; Identification of the individual responsible for restricting the entry of women and girls.

Jama Masjid revealed earlier on Thursday that it will no longer allow women to enter the mosque without being accompanied by men.
