force to give charity

Question ID: 31482

I perform salaah at a Jamaat khana, recently they have been collecting Lillah for the purchase of land to build a masjid.
On one Jummah, a member of the committee, during the lecture, stood up and started saf by saf, with clay pot asking each musali for money. Now they have made a “money box” on wheels, that is passed around in the same manner every Jummah.
This is a common practice that is done among Christians in their churches.
From my understanding, what the right hand gives the left shouldn’t even know. By doing this, they are placing people on the spot and obliged to give money. Hence the money is not given from the heart with sincerity.
I would like to know your view on this.

Although permissible.
I have many reservations about this method.
