Amit Shah today stopped his speech after hearing ‘Azaan’ at a nearby mosque in Kashmir

Baramulla, Jammu and Kashmir:

Union Home Minister Amit Shah today briefly stopped his speech during a rally in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district as ‘Azaan’ or Muslim call to prayer was going on at a nearby mosque.

Five minutes into his half-an-hour long speech at Showkat Ali stadium in the North Kashmir district, Amit Shah paused and asked those on stage “if something was going on at a mosque?”

When someone on the stage told him that ‘Azaan’ was going on, Amit Shah stopped his speech immediately, attracting a huge round of applause and chanting of slogans in his favor from the gathering.

After a brief moment, he said that the call for prayer has now stopped and asked if he could continue his speech.

“Should I resume my speech or not? Say it loudly, should I resume my speech,” he asked the gathering. He then went on with his speech.
