I am afraid all the so-called "human rights" organisations in India would rise up in arms.

However the Govt. should monitor all the Friday sermons in the masjids and take action against any iman/mullah/etc. who incites violence and terror. (Even the Saudi govt. monitors the sermons for anti-Saudi Royal family sermons!)

No. We should not. China can do anything because it is a collective dictatorship. India is the biggest democracy in the world and we cannot do what China does. We should not forget that there is no comparison between China and India. Both are opposite forms of government.
We should not try to hurt the sentiments of our Muslim brothers and sisters because they are our own. Instead, we should help them to have their Friday prayers. Banning anything has never given fruitful results. It is not appropriate for us to compare our nation with China where there is no democracy and people have no voice. Thank God, we are born in India.

No we should not and must not. India's inherent strength lies in inclusiveness and individual freedom. Chinese government is much more efficient than Indian government and that is why their economy has gone up because of the government. In India's case also economy has improved by many folds mainly in private sector. Please appreciate that our private sector has gone ahead in spite of the government. In the list of top richest persons of the world declared by Fortune 500 magazine, apart from other Indians, names of three Indians appear amongst the first ten names. Not a single Chinese name appear in the list of first hundred. This is exactly our strength which the Chinese are worried of. We must not give away this strength by following the Chinese. If you change your basic policy, you cannot change it only for religion - you have to change it for everything and that will take away our strength. Because of this strength, rest assured that we shall surpass the Chinese and that day will n ...more

Environment in China is different .Sensitive people does not know what they are doing.If they are realised about facts they will not do such things. No necessary to ban any prayer if it is only serving the purpose of prayer .
