Lucknow  Supporters of Sia cleric Mulana Kalbe Jawad on Wednesday night announced that they will not hold any massive protest in the holy month of Ramzan, but will not celebrate Eid  if their demand to remove the chairperson of Sia Central Waqf Board, UP, is not met by then. This means that the historic-era Chhota  and Bara Imambaras in the city will continue to be out of bounds for tourists as Jawad supporters have put locks on them and have sat on a dharna outside. The decision to continue the agitation and keep Imambaras locked was taken unanimously by 80 Anjumans ( religious groups) at a meeting presided over by Jawad.
The peacefull demonstration outside Bara Imambaras by men and the  outside Chhota Imambara by women will continue.  Imambaras have been locked for the past 13 days, leading to huge financial loss and monumental disappointment for tourists. Earlier, hundreds of women under banner of Muslim Mahila Jagrook Manch marched from Chhota Imambara in an attempt to protest outside the CM's residence. They were stopped by police at Hussainabad clock tower where they presented a memorandum to the administration. They warned of protest at the CM's residence on Thursday if their demands not met.
