ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: President Dr. Arif Alvi has said that women in modest Islamic dress with covered hair were allowed in Mosques all over the world to offer their prayers but restrictions had been imposed on women for offering prayers and visiting the Main Hall of the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad which had a religious and touristic value.

While taking note of a special report published by Dawn News on 14th September wherein restrictions on women to offer their prayers, poor cleanliness conditions and maintenance, and beggary at the historic mosque was highlighted, the president said that there was no enclosure for women in the Main Hall, and the elderly and unwell women were constrained to climbing stairs to approach the enclosure on the first floor due to the absence of an elevator.

The president expressed concern as to how women would be able to offer their prayers while faced with these restrictions.

President Arif Alvi said that he believed that the women should be allowed to pray in an enclosure in the Faisal Mosque’s Main Hall and to visit the main hall to appreciate the architectural beauty of this magnificent mosque.

This is my opinion which is based upon observation throughout the world including the Harmain Sharifain, he added.

The Capital Development Authority (CDA) in his report submitted to the President Secretariat had informed that it has initiated actions to ensure cleanliness and to carry out the maintenance and rid the area of beggars, whereas, after the construction of the mosque as a policy of Dawah Academy, Islamic University, only one gallery was reserved for ladies and there was no permission for women to enter in the main hall.

President Arif Alvi has desired that the Administrator of Faisal Mosque may discuss and brief on these issues.
