Vishwa Guru has no place for the Pasmanda to offer namaz

Given a choice, no one would like to pray under the open sky, especially in the peak winter and summer and when it is raining. People offer namaz in the open, amid biting cold and dust and grime – as has been the case in Gurugram – only out of compulsion, writes Ali Anwar
