The shopkeepers say that the business used to run in the name of Markaz, but now people hesitate to come.
- Nizamuddin Markaz, also known as Banglewali Mosque, is still seen hanging on it.
- Nassim, who sells hats, says – Our business used to run due to mercury, which has now come to a standstill.
Nizamuddin's famous Ghalib Kebab Corner is back in awe again. The aroma of fried meat rising from the oven has once again pulled the enthusiasts to the streets of Nizamuddin. Indigenous and foreign perfume shops have started to decorate once again. Fresh flowers climbing the Nizamuddin Auliya's Dargah have started smelling again. The famous qawwali has once again started dissolving music in the evenings here.
Despite all this, Nizamuddin's Shan-o-Shaukat has not returned, which used to happen before the Corona transition. Nor does such a crowd appear in this area, as in other areas and markets of Delhi. The way Nizamuddin Markaz came into the limelight in the early stages of the Corona transition is still visible here.
Nizamuddin Markaz, also known as the Bungalow Mosque, is still seen hanging on it. However, the management people have started the system of offering Namaz in it. But, the arrival of common people and outside deposits is still closed.
Mohammad Shakir, who trades dates outside Markaz, says, “After the event of Markaz, Nizamuddin has become such that people are avoiding coming here.” Earlier people of all religions used to come here. But these days, non-Muslims hardly come here. '
Nizamuddin's famous Ghalib Kebab Corner has started returning a little bright again.
When all the temples and mosques of the country have been opened to the common people, then why is Nizamuddin Markaz closed? When asked this question, Markaz's watchman says – Markaz is different from common mosques. In mosques, people return to offer Namaz, but the congregations in Markaz include people from abroad and abroad and they stay here for weeks. If Markz just opened up and a case of Corona came out here, Markaz would come on target again. Therefore, the mercantile management has decided to discontinue it.
This area was converted into a cantonment after the Corona case surfaced in Markaz. There was heavy deployment of paramilitary forces round the clock. The entire area was sealed and the routes of buses passing through this side were changed. Gradually all these restrictions were lifted, but still people have not been afraid of Markaz.
Nasim, who sells handkerchiefs and caps near Markaz, says, “All our business was run by Markaz. Markaz was so infamous that now people are also afraid of coming to this side. When we tell someone that we live near Nizamuddin Markaz, then people also keep distance from us. Business is almost over. Many people have been forced to close their shops forever. '
There is Ghalib Academy near this Markaj where there used to be a flow of tourists coming from India and abroad. After months of closure, the academy has once again opened to tourists, but at the same time, there is still silence. In this area filled with tourists, only local people or customers who are regularly coming here are reaching here.
Mohammad Nasir, owner of the famous Hotel Ghalib Kabab Corner, says, “We are still on track, because many of our customers are tied up.” Many order online, but for those whose business is solely focused on tourists, the difficulties have not reduced yet.

From the markets of Old Delhi to Lajpat Nagar and Sarojini Magar Market, there is a huge crowd. And all this is happening at a time when Corona infection is spreading fastest in Delhi. In Delhi, 7,745 new cases of corona have been reported in a single day last Sunday. This is the largest figure ever. Experts say that this is the third wave of the corona, which is spreading very fast.
Anoop Mishra, chairman of Fortis C-DOC Hospital, has even said that a partial lockdown of at least one week should be re-implemented in Delhi, in which all the metro and bus services should be stopped. However, other experts believe that it will not be possible for people already facing financial difficulties to face a lockdown once again, so other ways to prevent infection will have to be adopted.
