The notice read: “On June 24, 2020, you visited the Noori Ilahi Sunni Welfare Association’s mosque in Mankhurd with the plea of reducing the volume of azaan that blares through the loudspeakers installed in the neighbourhood. It was inappropriate on your part to visit the mosque for requesting them to lower the volume of azaan. Instead of entering into the mosque, the complainant should have followed the due law and approached the nearby police station to raise her grievances with them.”
