Sasidhar visits Spanish mosque

Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: National Disaster Management Authority member M.Sasidhar Reddy on Friday visited the Spanish mosque at Begumpet following reports of the monument suffering cracks on its minarets and arches due to blasting carried out at a nearby construction site.

“I have requested the authorities concerned for a detailed investigation on permissions given for construction work in proximity to a listed heritage structure and if there were any violations,” Mr.Reddy said. The mosque occupies a prominent place in the heritage structures of the city and also finds an important mention in the documentation of buildings of Spanish heritage in the country, he said. He also noted the indiscriminate blasting of rocks taken up for construction works in and around the city that caused inconvenience to locals.
