The Delhi High Court has ordered the vacating of a mosque and madarsa located at Hazrat Nizamuddin. The directive was issued to the caretaker, giving a one-month timeline for vacating the premises, which are set for demolition by the authorities.

Justice Amit Sharma, during a recent hearing, emphasized that no further time extension would be allowed for the occupants to vacate the area. The mosque and madarsa, positioned near the ISBT bus depot at Sarai Kale Khan, became the focal point of a legal petition challenging the demolition threatened by the Delhi Police and the Delhi Development Authority (DDA).

The Delhi Religious Committee, represented by advocate Arun Panwar, has moved to eliminate unauthorized religious structures occupying public land. Despite the petitioner's plea for more time, the court confirmed the caretaker's assurance to vacate within a month.
