Delay in the repair of the Chhota Imambara gates led heritage activists in the city to file a contempt petition in the high court. Earlier activist SMH Rizvi, on whose PIL the court had passed the order, wrote to district officials on Monday warning to approach the court again if the repair was not started immediately.

Couple of years back, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court had ordered to re-store the gates of the Chhota Imambara. The task was jointly assigned to the Husainabad and Allied Trust (HAT), which is being looked after by the district administration, and the ASI. But the work has remained stalled for about six months now.
