This not a loss for Hindus. Hinduism is the fastest growing religion in the world. But, NIA should take over the case to find out whether they received funds from middle east run Islamic mission in Kerala.

An FIR has been launched against Dream11 for running its fantasy sports app despite Karnataka banning online gaming that involves stakes (money). 

Dream11 is a partner of the Board of Control for Cricket in India and sponsors the Indian Premier League currently underway in the UAE. 

Dream11 has been running its fantasy cricket app at a time when almost all top real money gaming operators like MPL, Paytm and My11Circle have stopped operations the moment the Karnataka Police Act 2021 came into effect on October 5. Apart from Dream11, the Jaipur-based popular fantasy app MyTeam11 is also available in Karnataka.

According to the FIR filed at the Annapoorneshwarinagar police station on Friday by one Manjunath, a resident of Nagarbhavi in Bengaluru, Bhavit Sheth and Harsh Jain, the founders and directors of Sporta Technologies Private Limited which promotes the Dream11 gaming app, have been booked as accused number one and two. The police have initiated action based on the complaint.

Dream11 did not comment on the FIR. It had been steadfastly refusing to answer questions on why it was running its fantasy app when all had stopped.

Industry sources told Outlook on Friday that Dream11 "has acquired explicit legal opinion from a reputed former Supreme Court judge to keep running its business in states that have outlawed online gaming involving stakes.

Dream11 has clearly split the real money gaming world. Platinum members, who belong to the Federation of Indian Fantasy Sports, are feeling betrayed that the 'solidarity' has been broken by the founders (Dream11) themselves.

"Internally at FIFS, we got the feeling it was all right to runs ours apps. Why stop it? But taking on the state by breaking the law would have been suicidal," said a senior management person of a top operator.

Interestingly, Dream11 app is accessible to some users in Telangana, Assam, Odisha and Arunachal Pradesh as well. These states have banned online games but have not initiated any action against Dream11.

Meanwhile, Dream11 has also left its subscribers in the lurch by not replying to messages on the fantasy app's status in Karnataka. Several tweets asking for clarification after the ban was imposed have gone unanswered.

Bengaluru, Oct 19: Karnataka Congress president D K Shivakumar, who retracted an "uncivil" tweet made by his party on Monday, has demanded an apology from his BJP counterpart Nalin Kumar Kateel for calling former AICC chief Rahul Gandhi a "drug addict and peddler". 

While speaking at an event in Hubballi, Kateel claimed his remarks on Rahul were based on media reports. Congress leaders, however, condemned the statement, asking the BJP to sack Kateel. 

"Yesterday I said I believe we should be civil and respectful in politics, even to our opponents. I hope the BJP agrees with me and will apologise for their state president’s abusive and unparliamentary remarks against Shri Rahul Gandhi," Shivakumar said in a tweet. 

Kateel's remarks came as an apparent strike against Congress for calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi "#HebbettuGiraakiModi" which translates into the belittling Hindi expression ‘angootha chhaap’ for an illiterate person. 

Shivakumar regretted the tweet and said it was posted by a "novice social media manager". Shivakumar added that he always believed that civil and parliamentary language was non-negotiable in political discourse and that the tweet was "regretted and withdrawn."

Meanwhile, condemning Kateel's statement, AICC general secretary Dinesh Gundu Rao demanded that BJP remove Kateel from the post.

"Being a party president, he should not make such baseless statements and stoop to this level. It is shameful that a person with such a mentality is the state president of a national party," Rao said, calling Kateel "senseless" and as someone who had lost his "mental balance". 

Lashing out at the ruling party, Rao further alleged that BJP was a corrupt party both financially and morally. "They have no principles. They take God's name for ulterior political motives," he said. 

He urged Chief Minister Bommai to take control of what his party leaders were speaking.

Bengaluru, Oct 11: Four families from Karnataka's Chitradurga district, including the mother of BJP legislator Goolihatti Shekhar, have reverted to Hinduism after living as Christians.

"Individuals of four families, including my mother have made 'ghar wapasi' after living as Christians. They have finally rectified their mistake," Shekhar told reporters near Chitradurga.

He said the families who returned to Hinduism on Monday offered prayers at a temple and expressed happiness at their decision to revert to Hinduism.

These families, Shekhar said, were tricked into conversion and he had to work hard to bring them back to their original faith.

Raising the issue in the Monsoon Session of the state assembly, Shekhar had claimed that more than 20,000 people including his mother converted to Christianity.

Calling conversion "a national problem and a conspiracy to divide people", he had also pressed for a stringent bill to curb conversion.

In his reply, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had said that the government was seriously considering a law to ban forced religious conversions in the state.

BJP-ruled states like Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh have already enforced anti-conversion laws to check conversion by force or allurement.

Karnataka Home Minister Araga Jnanendra also had raised concerns on the issue and pushed for introducing Uttar Pradesh-like law.

He had sought details of organisations that were slapping false charges against those who raised their voices against conversion.

Senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah on October 1 had opposed forcible religious conversion, but had added that those who wanted to convert on their own should not be stopped.
