Congregational Friday Prayers - Support from Government of India
In a reply to RTI application, the DOPT, Govt. of India has accepted that it is allowed for the Muslim Government employees to take a break of an hour during lunch time for Juma prayer on Fridays. The order copy is attached here.
This can support Muslim employees in case of any administrative hurdle in availing break for offering congregational Friday prayers.
However, true believers with devotion to duty as well never face any such hurdle at all; rather others also remind them to offer prayers on time.
