“She is well-versed with the holy Quran. Now we are happy that she topped state level Ramanaya exam. I am proud of my daughter,” says her father Ibrahim, who works in a factory.

A Class 9 student of Sarvodaya High School, Sulliapadavu village, Rahila scored 93% in the exam held in November 2015. The results were announced recently.

“When we came to know that Rahila is interested in learning Ramayana and Mahabharata we encouraged her,” said Ibrahim, adding that children should learn the essence of all religions.

“From Sarvodaya High School as many as 39 students wrote this state level exam. Students appeared for exams after self-study,” said principal Shivarama HD, adding that none of the students were forced to write the exam.

Cheddis doesnt want the hindus to learn the VEDAS...
They have put up a fear in the people among hindus that it will be cursed if you touch the vedas and this book is only for the brahmanas...
A brahmana who went against such ritual who thinks & ponders said that People will leave the hindu rituals & worshiping idols will diminish, if any Hindus try to learn the VEDAS...
Vedas says NA TASYA PRATIMA ASTI>>>That it self is clear that God has no IMAGe. temples are only make money by keeping idols of even animals & human picture. Shame if you dont use your god given intellectual.
In QURAN ALLAH says : Dont fear anybody except him who control even the brahmanas... So read, understand and PONDER on gods word. If U really honest God will Help U & protect U ... TRUST HIM and throw away your FEAR of this so called high class people.

Good to see this. This shows we are tolerant and not communal like other. Love all and leave with peace. Give education to our community girls and make them stand on their legs. Look at our community, because of Dowry there are so many girls are unmarried and Mangalore boys are marrying neighboring state girls for money. Who will stop this. Are our community elders listening to this?

Bengaluru, Nov 18: BJP candidate K Narayan on Wednesday filed his nomination papers for the December 1 by-election to the Rajya Sabha seat.

The seat fell vacant following the demise of Ashok Gasti who died after contracting COVID-19.

Narayan, a Mangaluru-based businessman, was accompanied by BJP State President Nalin Kumar Kateel, Minister for Panchayat Raj and Rural Development K S Eshwarappa, Minister for Horticulture Narayna Gowda, among others.

Narayan belongs to the Devanga community and he has been a party worker for the last five decades.

Wednesday is the last day for filing nominations. With no other candidate in the fray, Narayan is expected to be elected unopposed. Congress is not fielding candidates due to lack of numbers required.

Mangaluru, Dec 1: The appearance of provocative graffiti in the coastal city was a conspiracy by communal forces to disrupt peace in the region, feels Social Democratic Party of India.

In two similar incidents reported on November 27 and 29, graffiti in support of Lashkar-e-Taiba and threatening to behead those who insult prophet appeared on the walls of an apartment complex and in court premises in the city, respectively.

Addressing a press conference in the city today, Ataullah Jokatte, Dakshina Kannada district unit president of SDPI, expressed concern over delay by police in arresting the culprits behind the incidents.

He said that the negligence on part of the administration and the police department towards the incident resulted in its recurrence.

He said that the police had even ignored the provocative statement by RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat, who had compared the coastal town of Ullal to Pakistan. The inaction of police in this case gave more courage to anti-national elements to write anti-national slogans on city walls.

Mr Jokatte went on to claim that Sangh Parivar has a notorious history of resorting to such provocative actions in the region as a prelude to creating communal disturbance.

Local SDPI leaders Shahul Hameed, Iqbal Bellare, Anwar Sadath and Jamal Jokatte were present.

Bengaluru, Nov 20: Cow slaughter ban would be a reality in Karnataka in the near future, the BJP national general secretary C T Ravi said on Friday.

The former Karnataka Minister, who is in-charge of party affairs in Maharashtra, Goa and poll-bound Tamil Nadu, said a law banning cow slaughter would be passed in the upcoming Assembly session.

"Cow Slaughter Ban will be a reality in Karnataka in the near future. I have asked Animal Husbandry Minister Sri @PrabhuChavanBJP to get "The Karnataka Prevention of Slaughter & Preservation of Cattle Bill" passed in the Cabinet and present the same in the upcoming Assembly Session," the Chikkamagaluru MLA tweeted.

Ravi had also said earlier this month that on the lines of Allahabad High Court's order, Karnataka would enact a law banning religious conversions for the sake of marriage.

"We will not remain silent when Jihadis strip the dignity of our sisters," he had said, adding, anyone involved in any act of conversion shall face severe and swift punishment.

The Allahabad High Court in its order on October 31 said that religious conversion just for the sake of marriage was not valid.

The court made the remark while dismissing a plea by a newly married couple in Uttar Pradesh that had approached it to direct police and the woman's father not to disturb their marital life.

In the petition, it was stated that the couple got married in July this year, but family members of the woman were interfering in their marital life.
