First of all the religion that u practise has got nothing to do with the construction plan of your house.

Secondly, every map of construction site in any city is approved by the develooement authority of that city- in respect of which certian development/construction norms have been laid down.

If the window which is the matter of the present dispute forms a part of the sanctioned plan, please go ahead with constructing the same- in any other case I would need to go through the sanctioned plans and the map to advise you in a more comprehensive manner
