Officials of the KSPCB said that over one third of the Ganesha idols immersed in the city's lakes this time are PoP idols. Over 2.65 lakh mud idols of Ganesha also have been immersed in those lakes.

Earlier KSPCB Chairman Lakshman revealed that there were around 50,000 PoP idols in the market in different parts of Karnataka including 35,000 in Bengaluru alone this time. According to manufacturers, the idols sold in the market were old stock and they have sought permission to clear them this year.

The KSPCB has banned the use and immersion of PoP idols in water bodies. The action followed a notification issued by the National Green Tribunal in 2013. The NGT?had ordered pollution control boards to conduct a study on pollution caused due to immersion of PoP and coloured idols and ban them under Section 33 of The Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution)?Act, 1974.

once my parents met with tragic accident in mumbai, the auto in which they were travelling was hit head on with a truck, the truck driver fled away, my father bounced out of Auto, lying on the road unconscious with blood coming out of mouth, my mother jumped out of the auto with my younger brother who was kid then, and my mom cried for help, nobody came, she kept crying and it was evening, She was pleading for help in Tulu also, then suddenly a tempo driver who was passing by came for help, said, Akka, don't worry i will help, he took everyone to hospital, later my dad regained consciousness. He came to our house and then further we learnt that this person was a native of Mangalore and he resides at near the temple of our Kula-devi Godess on hearing my mom's plea he came to help. further he happened to be my father's elder brother's classmate. We were really thankful to his kind deed. A help came from 1000 kms away far far away to mumbai that too sent by mother godess. Else everybody was shrugging away to help my mother.

Once when i was travelling in a train. one family was in my boogie, one kid kept on vomiting in the train, i gave kid's mother a lemon. then her vomiting got stopped.

her mother told, tum hamare liye bhagwan ho. i told her, plz iam a common man, dont make me god.

Thats what iam saying. Without reading ur College Books, u wont get knowledge and will not pass the Graduation.

Last and final Book Quran is for Whole of the Humanity.

U point out a single error in Quran, It is 100% Correct.

Why many converts to islam. even tony blair's sister converted to islam.

Quran also states That killing a innocent Person, is as if he is killing the whole of humanity, but still u find terrorists who kills the innocent.
For us they are anti muslim. enemy of the islam.

U know Shankaracharya Sanjay dwivedi , Now known as Ahmed Pandit. Before he was hindu Shankaracharya. Before just for visit any Marriage function, he used to Get Money in crores.

After comparing both the religion, he Converted to islam, and leads a common life. and now he preaches islam.

TRUE INDIAN, When you find answers to below questions you will get answer for what you have asked.

Does your god really in need of your prayers 5 times?if you don't pray then what? what will happen to god? why he orders you to pray?
Does your god benefit from your prayers? does your god gets power from it?
Does your god requires blood transfusion every year and so you perform goat sacrifices?
Is your god Jealousy, angry god? that he tells you if you worship any other god than him, he will burn you in hell fire.
Do you really believe that there are 72 virgins for all your men. Then what about women, they too pray, how god will reward them, where will they go after death? PONDER over this questions.

Do you really believe that God almighty makes mistakes at the time of creations, and he keeps sending messengers one by one and finally he rectifies all mistakes and sends final messenger? Do you think god is human being to make mistakes?

If you people wait for day of final judgement, what about all those who are born and dead before your Islam religion was formed, Its not their mistake they were born before your prophet gave the Holy message from god. How whether god will give them hell or heaven.?

Instead of asking me to use brain, you use it and try to find out why.

Regarding Lord shiva, He knows everything, Ganesha created by parvati and so he cut the head of Ignorance, pride and replaced it with head of wisdom & humility.

Lord rama, Ma sita, knew everything since begininng, so they never objected to whatever was happening. Even Ravan was Brahmin pandit, great Astrologer, he very well knew that Ram was Lord Vishnu himself, he wanted to attain salvation at the hands of Lord Ram, not only this he wanted salvation for his entire Rakshasa Clan so he pitted everyone against Lord Rama and got killed by Lord himself, thus everyone got Moksha (salvation) in the end.

Hope you understand everything now.

Dear Suresh,

Honestly U have to read and ponder on below.. Muslims just want the hindus to wake up and understand the REALITY. Dont make Mockery of God knowingly or unknowingly ... by giving illogical shapes ... Please learn about God and Ponder and reflect more on what God says in different religious scriptures.. which will benefit U and the hateful Society..

His form cannot be seen, no one sees Him with the eye - (Shwetashvatara upanishad 4:20) - Worshiping man made object is a SIN ?

Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires worship DEMIGODS (materialistic - others besides TRUE GOD) - Bhagwad Geeta 7:20

He is body less and pure - Yajurveda 40:8 (Dont worship objects)

They sink DEEPER in DARKNESS those who worship Sambhuti i.e created things\ (Yajurveda 40:9)

Do not worship anybody but Him, the Divine ONE, Praise Him alone - Rigveda 8:1:1)

Worshiping idols is not allowed in hindu scriptures itself...U need to study and ponder on your own scripture.. to recognise and come near to the TRUTH."

AHMED,USA,- I HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR YOUR THOUGHTS & WORDS OF WISDOM. We should be tolerant & respect all religions. The god that made EARTH, SUN & MOON and everything is the same. Only the followers are different.
TRUE INDIAN - All Hindus know GOD. Eg. Just like a person can be a FATHER to a child, brother to a sister, SON to Parents, Husband to a women, Friend for someone. Here the person is same only his work and relation with different people will be different. You call him in whatever name you want. Same way the GOD whom you pray and whom Christians or Jews or paresis or Hindus pray are SAME. the way of worshiping him is different. Every one may be right in their own way. So stop arguing and let people follow what their heart says is right. Don't mislead them.

TRUE INDIAN - God has given you Teeth, but i guess you don't bite others. Becoz you know its uses. Same way GOD has given you BRAIN, why don't you USE it.

Killing an animal for FOOD is fine. but killing an animal for fun or in the name of god is a great unpardonable sin.
PRAKASH SHETTY (NAME CHANGED), TRUE INDIAN, just Google out \ RIVERS OF BLOOD - IN DAKA\" and read how the blood was flowing down the road after bakrid, you will come to know how dirty the road was with blood and dead animal carcasses everywhere. It is worst than Idols immersed in rivers & ponds.

TRUE INDIAN - finally you say, you pray 5 times a day, Still there is no peace on earth lots & lots of violence going on , just imagine. Can you pray for world peace, and will your god answer your prayers?"

Dont U know that Idol worship is a great sin and will never be acceptable with lord of the worlds... even Non muslims are our brothers in humanity. We should convey the TRUTH without insulting... that's right. but where did anybody hurt here.
The commentor is asking the non muslims to reflect on the vedas verse and know the reality of idol worship...
If U like to hide the reality of worshiping ONE GOD which is also mentioned in hindu scriptures... U want others not know about the TRUTH.
What the comment below says is that 'there is no image of God' and thats the TRUTH.

if U think that as a Muslim keeping quite on this and never tell our brothers in humanity of the TRUTH... Then the media which is propagating the other way of what God is, fooling all the people who doesnt care for who is worthy of Worship...
Use your intellect and look for the TRUTH... it might hurt a little but your deep study will know the REALITY of worshiping idols and living in darkness of the TRUTH.
MAY ALLAH GUIDE THOSE WHO R HONEST IN LOOKING FOR THE TRUTH. ALLAH KNOWS BEST.

I would say immature journalism must use some professional ethics .it is very sad to see fellow Muslims mocking others faith .it is the main reason for all the mess .we must respect others faith. No religion is perfect .every religion has its own shortcomings. Salafist mentality of journalism is really not good as it divides the society .where ever you go .we are now seeing islamophobia..

Udupi: Newborn girl dumped in garbage bin; rescued by civic workers

coastaldigest.com news network
August 10,2020

Udupi, Aug 10: Civic workers in Udupi today rescued a newborn girl which was dumped in a garbage bin near Chittaranjan circle in the city. The child was immediately shifted to the district government hospital. 

"The girl baby is out of danger and is doing well," Legal-cum-Probation Officer at District Child Protection Unit (DCPU), Prabhakar Achar, said.

It is learnt that the Pourakarmikas cleaning the street near Chittaranjan circle heard the cries of a baby coming from a garbage bin. On approaching the bin, they were shocked to see a newborn girl kept in a paint box. They alerted social worker Nityananda Volakad who in turn informed Udupi women police station Sub Inspector Violet Femina and Udupi Town police station Sub Inspector Sakti Velu.

Prabhakar Achar with help of police shifted the newborn baby to a hospital. Prabhakar said the baby's health would have deteriorated if she would have been exposed to rains for another two hours. Achar declared that the abandoning of the baby in a garbage bin was an unacceptable and heinous act.

"The mothers who cannot look after their babies should place them in 'Mamatheya Thottilu' kept in front of B R Shetty hospital in Santhekatte and Balika Kendra in Nitturu," he said.

Karnataka govt slammed over deaths of eight patients in Kalaburagi hospital

News Network
July 22,2020

Bengaluru, Jul 22: Congress MLA Priyank Kharge has questioned the Karnataka government on the alleged breakdown of oxygen in the intensive care unit (ICU) at ESIC hospital in Kalaburagi, saying he had got complaints that eight persons who were on ventilators had died.

He asked the government if it is "deliberately" hiding something about the patients that were admitted in ESIC.

"I have got complaints that eight people who were on ventilators are dead in ESIC Kalaburagi because there was oxygen breakdown in ICU. ESIC has not been admitting patients as the issue has not been resolved. Nobody is confirming or denying it. Is the Government deliberately hiding something?" he asked.
Kharge also accused the government of not having adequate facilities to combat COVID-19 in different parts of the state.

"I hope I am wrong, but if it is a fact, this ascertains that the administration has lost control over Corona pandemic in the district. No addition testing centre. No beds are available. PPE Kits and medical waste is thrown in Gulbarga Institute of Medical Sciences (GIMS)," he added.

According to the Union Health Ministry, there are 67420 COVID-19 cases in the state.

Karnataka govt issues guidelines for Eid al-Adha

coastaldigest.com news network
July 26,2020

Bengaluru, Jul 26: The government of Karnataka has urged the Muslims to celebrate Eid al-Adha in a simple manner and follow all guidelines amid mounting cases of covid-19.

The festival, also known as Bakrid, will be celebrated on July 31 in coastal districts of Karnataka and on August 1 in other parts of Karnataka. 

In an order, A B Ibrahim, secretary of the department of minority welfare, Hajj and Waqf has prohibited offering Eid prayers in open grounds (Eidgahs) in the wake of pandemic.

Eid prayers can be offered in mosques by following all the necessary precautionary measures including maintaining physical distance. The congregation should not exceed 50 worshippers. If they number exceeds, they should be divided into three groups. 

However, except for mosques, no other places should be used for offering congregational prayer. 

Besides, all those who attend Eid prayers at mosque should compulsorily wear face masks. Entry is banned for people who are above the age of 60 years and below the age of 10. At least six feet distance needs to be maintained while offering prayer.

Thermal scanning needs to be done before entering the mosque. Hands need to be washed in soap or sanitizer. No one should touch the holy books in the mosque. Hand shaking and embracing to greet will also not be allowed. If any strangers are seen, their movement should be monitored.
