Uttar Pradesh has informed that as many as 53,942 loudspeakers were taken down from various religious places across the state till 7.00 AM on Sunday, following the directions of the Yogi Adityanath government.

Additional General of Police (Law and Order) in Uttar Pradesh, Prashant Kumar said, “So far, till 7.00 AM in the morning today, 53,942 loudspeakers have been removed from various religious places across the state while the sound level of 60,295 loudspeakers was reduced and brought down to the level of standard parameters.”

The UP government issued the order to remove illegal loudspeakers from religious places in the state on 24 April.

“A compliance report (from the districts) in this regard has been sought. The have been directed to talk to the religious leaders, and ensure the removal of the unauthorised loudspeakers by coordinating with them,” said Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Awanish Kumar Awasthi.

Prior to this announcement, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath issued directions for restricting the volume of loudspeakers at religious places, earlier this month.

On 13 April, Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray gave an ultimatum to the Maharashtra government and reiterated his demand that loudspeakers from mosques be removed. 

He asked the government to act before 3 May, failing which the government can face consequences, he said. 

Several leaders have come out in support of MNS chief Raj Thackeray by saying they will play Hanuman Chalisa if mosques continue to blare azan from loudspeakers.
