Mangaluru, Aug 5: Even as the students of St Thomas Aided Higher Primary School at Bondanthila in Mangaluru taluk, rubbished the allegations of compulsory' Arabic class, the Sri Ram Sena has continued to accuse the school management of forcibly' teaching Arabic. The saffron outfit has also demanded the school headmaster to withdraw complaint against the Hindutva activists.

Addressing media persons here on Friday Mahesh Kumar Koppa, Karnataka state unit president of the Sena, warned to hold massive protests in front of all Catholic churches in Dakshina Kannada if the case was not withdrawn.

Describing the act of miscreants, who barged into the school, as their “democratic right”, Mr Koppa said that it was just a visit following the request of some of the parents and not an act of rowdyism. According to eye witnesses, the miscreants had threatened the teacher and even snatched books from the students when the Arabic class was going on.

“Our activists had visited the school peacefully and submitted a representation to headmaster Melwyn Braggs urging him to stop Arabic classes. He had also agreed to fulfil our demand”, Mr Koppa said and added that later Mr Braggs lodged a false complaint against the activists.

At the behest of school management, the police have filed charges of trespassing and preventing a government official from discharging their duties against the members. The false case should be withdrawn, he demanded.

Claiming that there was a political motive behind filing such cases against Hinduvta activists, he held Catholic churches responsible for this. “We will hold protest against this and also will wage a legal battle,” he said.

ISIS terrorists!

Mr Koppa suspected the hand of “conversion racket” behind Arabic teaching in the school managed by Christians. He went on to claim that such classes will motivate people to become ISIS terrorists. Instead of Arabic, the school can teach Tulu script, Bhagavad Gita, Ramayana and Mahabharata and other Hindu scriptures, he suggested.

Mr Koppa also said that the State government and the district administration should immediately intervene in the cases of schools teaching Arabic without obtaining permission.

“How can they teach Arabic in a government aided school?” he argued and urged the government not to spend tax-payers money for this school and its teachers. He also exhorted the education department to conduct a probe into the incidents of teaching Arabic.

Arabic is the universal language,in middle east and in African countries this is the language of all faith of people. By learning Arabic one can gain more knowledge and understanding. Thousands of our co-citizens are employed in gulf countries are very much sure that the knowing of Arabic language is the plus point for their earnings there. Which make our countries economy stable.
Narrow mind thinking is not at all good for any civilized society.

This Koppa needs to be admitted to a mental hospital. He is not normal. Christians convert; Muslims are terrorists and Dalits are beef eaters and beef is more important than humans. By repeating lies, lies do not become truths. Send the entire gang of BJP, RSS, VHP, BD and Rama Sene to Andamans. They need to be exiled for peace in Mangalore

Why you people are not fighting to make Sanskrit a compulsory language?. I feel it should be done so that everyone should learn the Holy Vedas. do you know that Gayathri Manthra in the arabic version is the first chapter of the Quran
Gayathri Manthra : OM BhurBhuva Swaha
Tatsavitur Varenyam
Bhargo devasya
Dheemahi Dhiyo Yonaha
Prachodayat
Meaning: we meditate on the Glory of the Creator who has created the universe who is worthy of worship who is embodiment of knowledge and light who is the remover of sin and ignorance May He open our hearts and May He guide us

Al Fathiha First chapter :
In the name of the Lord most merciful most beneficent
Praise be to the Lord of the universe Most merciful most Beneficent
Master of the day of judgement
To you alone we worship and to you alone we ask for help
Guide us to the straight path
The path of those whom you have blessed and not the path of those on whom your anger has fallen and not those who have gone astray

I agree with Bhaira. What's the necessity of fighting with Christians, who are also victims of Islamic terrorism. Hindus and Christians should unitedly fight terror community.

This Sri Rama Sena is a curse. Doing all unnecessary things. This group is actually funded by Saudi Arabia. They want to curb true Hindutva groups such as Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad.

The Congress in Karnataka on Sunday began its 10 days 'padayatra' (march), demanding implementation of the Mekedatu project across the Cauvery river, despite the government's COVID-19 restrictions. Led by Congress' state president D K Shivakumar and Leader of Opposition in the State Assembly Siddaramaiah, the padayatra with the theme 'Namma Neeru Namma Hakku' (Our water, Our right) began at the Sangama, the confluence of Cauvery and Arkavathi rivers in Kanakapura here, which will be spanning a distance of over 100 km.

With participation from hundreds of workers, leaders and cultural groups, the principal opposition party in the state is going ahead with the march, as planned, unfazed by the government's warning of action in case of violation of COVID restrictions and rules.

It now remains to be seen what action will the government take, with a large number of people gathering in violation of rules and orders.

The Karnataka government has imposed a curfew on weekends and restricted public gatherings to fight the third wave of COVID-19, till January 19. It has also imposed night curfew, and has prohibited all rallies, dharnas, protests, among others.

Congress has maintained that it will hold the padayatra following COVID rules and guidelines

Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, Shivakumar, Siddaramaiah, former Chief Minister Veerappa Moily, and almost all the senior party leaders and legislators were present at the inaugural of the padayatra, that is likely to cove a distance of about 15 km on the day one.

Some religious leaders and film personalities like actor Duniya Vijay, actor and music director Sadhu Kokila, were among others seen at the inaugural.

Projecting it as an apolitical "Walk for Water," the Congress has invited seers of various mutts, organisations, leaders of various political parties, film personalities, Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, among others to take part in the march.

Accusing the BJP government of trying to scuttle the padayatra, Siddaramaiah accused the ruling BJP of colluding with Tamil Nadu in delaying the implementation of Mekedatu project.

Claiming that the project was initiated by the Congress government led by him, he alleged that the ruling BJP has betrayed the people of the state by not getting environmental clearance despite being in power for last 2.5 years, and even accused the central government of not giving clearance, as the saffron party wants to expand its base in neighbouring Tamil Nadu.

"This padayatra is for getting water to Bengaluru and surrounding areas by implementing Mekedatu project, there is no stay for the project by courts or tribunals or Cauvery Water Management Authority.....Our padayatra will not stop, let how much ever the BJP try to stop it," he added.

Shivakumar, who is also MLA from Kanakapura, hitting out at Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai for trying to "thwart" the padayatra by asking the district administration to issue prohibitory orders, he dared him to arrest them if he could.

"This march is not for the Congress party or for the sake of power, it is for the sake of the people.... Like Congress fought against the British then for India's freedom, today we are fighting against BJP and Janata Dal.... SP (Superintendent of Police), Home Minister- you have issued orders against the law, we will not fear it....we will peacefully march following COVID rules," he added.

The Congress' march from Mekedatu to Bengaluru, covering about 15 of the 224 Assembly constituencies in the state, is demanding implementation of the Mekedatu project, which is being opposed by neighbouring Tamil Nadu.

Beginning at Sangama the padayatra is scheduled to pass through Kanakapura, Ramanagara and Bidadi, before culminating at Basavanagudi in Bengaluru on January 19.

Though the padayatra is being projected as apolitical, demanding the implementation of Mekedatu project, it is also seen as Congress' attempt to mobilise its cadres and consolidate its voter base in the old Mysuru region, which is a Vokkaliga bastion, where JD(S) is its traditional rival and the ruling BJP is attempting to make inroads, ahead of 2023 assembly polls.

Much is at stake for Shivakumar, the man behind this march, as several Congress functionaries believe that it is an attempt by the KPCC chief, ahead of assembly polls, to assert his Chief Ministerial ambitions, for which Siddaramaiah is also a strong contender. The party has seen several incidents of political one-upmanship between the two leaders last year.

Shivakumar took a dip in the river and performed pooja at the Sangam ahead of the padayatra's inaugural.

Both ruling BJP and JD(S) have hit out Congress calling its march as a "political stunt" ahead of assembly election next year, and has questioned its morality, accusing the grand old party of not putting any efforts to take the project forward while in power.

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has maintained that his government was committed to implement the project.

Karnataka government submitted a Detailed Project Report (DPR) to the Central Water Commission (CWC) in 2019, which was then referred to the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA), where it is stuck currently as Tamil Nadu which is the lower riparian state, has opposed the project tooth and nail.

Karnataka has maintained that the project within its territory will benefit both states as the surplus water stored can be managed between the two during the distress year, and its implementation will in no way affect the interests of Tamil Nadu's farming communities, as there will be no impact on its share of water.

While the neighbouring state is of the view that the project would "impound and divert" the uncontrolled water flow due to Tamil Nadu from Kabini sub- basin, the catchment area below Krishnarajasagara, and also from Simsha, Arkavathy and Suvarnavathi sub-basins besides other small streams.

The Mekedatu multipurpose (drinking and power) project, which involves building a balancing reservoir, near Kanakapura in Ramanagara district of Karnataka.

The project once completed is aimed at ensuring drinking water to Bengaluru and neighbouring areas (4.75 TMC) and also can generate 400 MW power, and the estimated cost of the project is Rs 9,000 crore.

Amid a surge in COVID-19 cases in Karnataka, the state government on Tuesday released fresh guidelines to mitigate the spread of the infection.

As per the fresh order, weekend curfew will be imposed from 10 pm on Friday till 5 am on Monday in the entire state. Besides, theatres, malls, pubs and bars will be allowed to operate at 50 per cent capacity, Karnataka minister R Ashoka said, adding that no gatherings will be allowed at public places.

Further, schools in Bengaluru, apart from 10th and 12th standards, will be shut down for two weeks from January 6.

The order comes after Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai met with members of the COVID-19 task force and experts in Bengaluru earlier today.

State Health minister K Sudhakar, Revenue Minister R Ashok, BBMP Commissioner Gaurav Gupta, Chief Secretary, DGP Praveen Sood, BBMP officials, health senior officials and technical advisory committee members were also present in the meeting.

As the highest rise in COVID-19 cases is being seen in Bengaluru, Sudhakar insisted upon special measures for the state capital.

Stating that the third wave of COVID-19 has set in, Sudhakar predicted that Bengaluru will be the epicentre of the latest outbreak.

He said the infections went up to 1.6 per cent from a mere 0.4 per cent in the state, of which 90 per cent were reported in Bengaluru.

Meanwhile, Karnataka reported 2,479 new COVID-19 cases, 288 recoveries, and 4 deaths in the last 24 hours. Active cases in the state stand at 13,532.

Bengaluru, Jan 10: The Cyber Crime Police have arrested a person for allegedly cheating as many as 26 women on the pretext of marriage.

The accused used matrimonial sites to find his victims. He landed in prison after making an attempt to dupe a woman who works in the police department.

The accused has been identified as Jai Bheem Vittal Padukoti (33), a resident of Vijayapur. The police have seized a luxury car from his possession besides freezing his bank accounts.

The accused got a job in Hescom as a lineman after the death of his father. He was married to Kavitha in 2013 and reportedly killed her following a quarrel. He was imprisoned for two years for this.

Coming out of the prison after securing bail, he resorted to cheating women on the pretext of marrying them to lead a luxurious life. The accused had created fake accounts in matrimonial sites, claiming that he was a section officer in Hescom.

He used to send messages to women that he had liked their profile. Later, he would visit their houses to win the trust of the parents and relatives of the victims. He also took lakhs of rupees from the girls' relatives promising them government jobs.

The accused managed to get the details of the bank accounts of the girls who agreed to marry him. Whenever the victims asked him to return the money, he would threaten them.

The police gathered evidence against the accused for cheating three women after developing physical intimacy with them on the pretext of marrying them.

The accused had cheated 26 women in Shivamogga, Haveri, Bengaluru, Mysuru, Dharwad, Hubballi, Yadgiri and Raichur districts. He had also taken Rs 21.30 lakh from the victims.

The accused ran out of luck after sending a similar request to a woman who worked in the police department. After observing his moves, the victim grew suspicious and informed the police.
