Viral TikTok video filmed inside India’s Jama Masjid mosque sparks tourist ban
The viral video filmed for the TikTok video sharing app features two girls dancing inside the mosque and doing handstands.
Other videos have since emerged showing other people dancing and singing at the mosque. Some Twitter users were outraged by the footage, denouncing the dancing as “vulgar.”
The mosque committee was angered by such blatant signs of disrespect and responded by issuing a ban on tourists entering the holy site. It has since relented somewhat, and will now only allow tourists in if they are specifically going there to pray.
