Last week, the  Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court stayed the arrest of the members of the Gareeb Nawaz Masjid Committee. The members of the committee are charged with forging the Documents of the Gareeb Nawaz Mosque, which was demolished earlier this month. 

On May 17, 2021 an administrative order demolished  the Mosque known as the Gareeb Nawaz Masjid in Barabanki. The mosque, was demolished after authorities determined it was an "illegal structure".  The Masjid Committee was in charge of the mosque's operations.

For allegedly using fraud and deception to get the mosque registered as a waqf property, the Barabanki Police Department registered an FIR  against eight people, including the President of the committee, Vice President of the committee, secretary along with the Utter Pradesh Sunni waqf Board Inspector. 

A Bench of Justices Attau Rahman Masoodi and Ajai Kumar Srivastava ruled that no coercive action against the petitioners should be taken, until a police report under Section 173(2) Cr.P.C. is filed.

The matter before the Court

The petitioners challenged the F.I.R. through a petition under Sections 419, 420, 467, 468, and 471 I.P.C., claiming that the F.I.R. was lodged against the petitioners despite the fact that no public document was forged or manipulated in any way by the petitioners.

The FIR was filed against the Committee's President, Mushtaq Ali, Vice-President Waqeel Ahmad, Secretary Mohamad Aneesh, and Dastageer, Afzaal Mohammad Naseem, as well as Utter Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board Inspector Mohammad Taha, and they sought relief from the High Court.
