Bengaluru, Aug 11: BJP National General Secretary C T Ravi has dared Chamarajpet Congress MLA Zameer Ahmed Khan to prevent the efforts of Hindutva activists to install a Ganesha idol in Chamarajpet Idgah Maidan. 

“The Ganesha idol will be installed at the maidan if we make up our minds. The maidan isn’t the property of Zameer Ahmed Khan. We’ll install the Ganesha idol and celebrate the festival in a grand way. Let him stop us from installing the idol,” he told reporters.

“Why should we take his permission to install an idol at the maidan?” he asked, adding, “We are not installing the idol in Arab countries”.

Following the row, Khan visited the City Police Commissioner’s office and spoke to CH Pratap Reddy. Meanwhile, DCP (West) Laxman B Nimbargi held a peace meeting with leaders of Muslim religious organisations.

He instructed the leaders not to take any step that will disturb law and order. He also warned them that police will take serious action if anyone indulges in activities that disturb peace. 

On Tuesday, Nimbargi met leaders of Hindu organisations and told them the same. The police said they are focusing on the Independence Day celebrations at the maidan, later they will look into the Ganesha festival issue.

Mangaluru, July 30: To register their protest against the communal bias and discrimination exhibited by the Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai led Karnataka government, the Muslim Central Committee Dakshina Kannada and Udupi along with other Muslim organisations today boycotted the so called peace meeting organised by the district administration. 

Committee Leaders charged that the government has been responding to one community, and said there is no point in attending the peace committee meeting convened by the district administration. Committee Vice President B M Mumtaz Ali said the committee covering 1000 mosques has been supporting peace and harmony in society. Even the final rites of Fazil was conducted in a peaceful manner.

“The government should treat all equally. It should not favour one particular community. There is no equality in the state. We boycotted the meeting as the CM who visited Praveen Nettaru’s house did not visit the house of Masood who succumbed on July 21. Fazil was hacked to death when CM was present in Mangaluru,” he said and sought to know why the lives of two youths who lost their lives were less important.

He said three lives were lost within a week. But there was discrimination in the distribution of compensation. “We have no objection if the CM had presented party's compensation to family of Praveen. While distributing compensation from government, it should be given to all three families,” he said. 

The committee also held a meeting today Under the leadership of its president K S Mohammed Masood and decided to raise a compensation of Rs 30 lakh each to the families of Mohammed Mashhood of Bellare and Mohammed Fazil of Surathkal.

MLA UT Khader, former MLA Mohiuddin Bava, Committee vice president Ibrahim Kodijal, B M Mumtaz Ali, Haneef Haji Bander, Syed Ahammed Basha Thanghal among others took part in the meeting.

DK Muslim Okkuta President K Ashraf said the chief minister should have convened a peace committee meeting. 

Mangaluru Commissioner of Police N Shashi Kumar responding to absence of Muslim leaders in peace meeting informed on having directed his officers to contact all prominent persons. “A few leaders spoke to me and had expressed their inability to attend the meeting as an organisation of Muslim leaders had convened a meeting at the same time," he said.

Leaders from all communities have promised to maintain peace. "By not attending the meeting it does not mean that they are not extending support to police,” the Commissioner clarified.

Popular Front of India, Social Democratic Party of India, Dakshina Kannada Muslim Sanghatanegala Okkoota, Jama’at-e-Islami Hind and many other Muslim organisations too had stated away from the district administration’s meeting.

Bengaluru, July 30: An Ethiopian national with symptoms of monkeypox has been quarantined at a private hospital here, the Karnataka health department said.

His samples have been sent to the National Institute of Virology in Pune for confirmation, the health officials said on Saturday. The African national has been isolated at the hospital where he got admitted for treatment of multiple health issues, including renal problem.

“The 55-year-old Ethiopian with kidney-related ailment and other health complications had come in the first week of July and only recently, he showed signs of monkeypox with rashes in his body,” a health department official said.

Health Minister K Sudhakar told reporters that there was no need for people to panic as it is not a deadly disease. “There is no need to panic over monkeypox. Of course, we need to take some precautionary measures. Even if it comes, there is treatment available for it. It does not lead to death. Death is highly unlikely,” Sudhakar, who himself is a medical professional, said. He said the disease belongs to the smallpox family. Those who have taken vaccines will not show major symptoms.
