Lulu Mall was inaugurated by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on July 10.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday spoke against "unnecessary remarks and staging demonstrations" over a controversy involving the Lulu Mall in Lucknow. The mall was inaugurated on July 10.
Here are five points on the controversy around Lulu Mall:
A video of eight Muslim men offering namaz at the mall went viral on July 12. A police case was registered on complaint of mall authorities and four of these men were arrested by the police.
But some Hindu organisations alleged violation of communal harmony and sought permission to recite the Hanuman Chalisa at the mall as a counter, which was denied. However, three Hindu men were arrested as they sought to hold prayers on July 15.
A group later created ruckus inside the mall, accusing the mall owners of being biased towards Muslims.
The charge was denied by the management, which provided data on those employed with it. It said in a statement that 80 per cent of its employees are Hindus.
The mall is run by Abu Dhabi-based Lulu Group of Indian-origin billionaire Yussuf Ali MA.
