At least 100 people from different religions visited a mosque during the ‘Open Mosque Day’ held at Azam campus. Alisha Karpe, a second-year law student of New Law College, Bharti Vidyapeeth, said, “I wanted to know more about this religion and so I came to the campus.” Swati Thory, who hails from Jaipur, visited the mosque out of curiosity. “I live in an area where most of my neighbours are Muslims. I was always curious to know about the way the community members worship inside the mosque. It was interesting to see how they pray and why they say namaaz five times.”
Sanyogita Tiwari, who hails from Jagdalpur, Chattisgarh, said, “I always had questions on what is the notion of Allah, or what is Azan and I have got my answers.” Dhirendra Rajpurohit from Jodhpur, Rajasthan, said that many of his misconceptions were clarified. “It is a good platform to seek answers regarding the religion,” he said.
