Mangaluru, Mar 20: The Mangaluru International Airport (MIA) has finally decided to fulfill the long pending demand of thousands of Muslim passengers to provide them a room to offer namaz within the terminal building.

1namazJ T Radhakrishna, the Director of the MIA has assured to make necessary arrangements to offer prayer in the Airport within two weeks. The prayer-room is expected to include a space for ablution or ‘wudu’.

The development comes after Tanveer Sait, Minister for Minority Welfare and Auqaf, Government of Karnataka, wrote to the Airport Authority of India to take necessary steps in this regard.

Coastaldigst.com had published a report in May 2015 highlighting the need for such a facility at Mangaluru Airport as many Muslim passengers now offer prayers in a congested area near the washroom at the new integrated terminal building.

The airport has seen an increase in visitors from the Middle Eastern countries in recent year and there would be more flights, including non-stop service, to and from many Muslim countries in the future. Moreover, a considerable number of other international and domestic air passengers find it difficult to offer prayer in the bustling area.

Our Current demand is not prayer room. In Islam, we can pray anywhere subject to cleanliness of prayer area. All airports are clean and neat. We need to stop the irritation/difficulties faced by the gulf passengers by the airport authorities. that's it.
There should be a workshop to teach Mangalore airport staff what is what!! Tab is tab. Mobile is mobile. Food is Food. Passport is Passport -
