Use of Loudspeaker from a mosque is not a fundamental Right: says Allahabad High Court


The Allahabad high court has said that the use of a loudspeaker from a mosque is not a fundamental right.

A man named Irfan from Budaun district seeked permission from SDM to allow him to play a loudspeaker from a mosque during azan at a village in the district. The SDM rejected the request made by Irfan.

After this, he filed a petition in Allahabad High Court. His counsel argued that the SDM’s order was wholly illegal and violated the fundamental and legal rights of the petitioner to run a loudspeaker from the mosque.

The court passed the observation while dismissing a petition and said that the petition was “patently misconceived.”

“The law has now been settled that use of a loudspeaker from mosque is not a fundamental right. Even otherwise, a cogent reason has been assigned in the impugned order,” said a Division Dench of Justices Vivek Kumar and Vikas Budhwar on May 4.
