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.

In the heaven-hell concept, sinners go to Naraka (Hell). However, if one has bad karma, the rebirth concept says that he/she will suffer in his next birth.

Vedas doesent speak about punarjanm or samskaram. It speaks about swargam and narkam.

But upanishads and bhagwat gita speaks about samskaram and punarjanm.

If there is rebirth there wouldn't been swargam and narkam

LIFE AFTER DEATH IN ISLAM

1. Live once in this world and then be resurrected in the Hereafter

It is mentioned in the Qur’an

How can ye reject the faith in Allah?
Seeing that ye were without life,
And He gave you life; Then will He cause you to die,
and will He again bring you to life; And again to Him will ye return.
(Al Qur’an 2:28)

Islam states that a human being comes into this world only once, and after he dies, he is again resurrected on the day of judgement. Depending on his deeds he will either dwell in heaven i.e. Paradise or he will dwell in hell.

2. This Life is a test for the hereafter

It is mentioned in the Qur’an

He who created Death and Life,
that He may try which of you is best in deed;
And He is the exalted in Might, oft- forgiving
(Al Qur’an 67:2)

This life that we lead in this world is a test for the hereafter. If we follow the commandments of the Almighty Creator and we pass the test, we shall enter Paradise i.e., which is Eternal Bliss. If we do not follow the commandments of our creator and fail the test then we shall be put into hell.

3. Full Recompense on the Day of Judgement:

It is mentioned in the Qur’an

Every soul shall have a test of death.
And only on the Day of Judgment shall
you be paid your full recompense.
Only he who is saved far from the fire and admitted to the Garden
will have attained the object (of life).
For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception.
(Al Qur’an 3:185)

True Indian To sum up all, we have acquired most perfect body is. Human form only after being born and dead thousand of times in to different creatures. our human life is there to come out of this life and death cycle and attain moksha merging with god, just like water has to merge into sea. so the purpose of eating food is to keep our body and soul together and not for sense gratification. just for tongue enjoyment why do we need to eat meat. Human life is meant for Austerity, purify our existence,and develop love for god. As told in scriptures 1 no meat eating, 2 No gambling, 3 No intoxication ( not even coffee and tea), 4 No illicit sex ( sex outside marriage) By following these 4 principles we are freeing yourself from karmic bondage reactions. In the end I would say Lead a religious life , pray 5 times a day, refrain from sinful activities, mercy, cleanliness, austerity and truthfulness.

True Indian, Hindus offering animal sacrifice at Kali temple. For those Tamasic people who cannot give up Meat, for them on Amavasya day. they have option they have to take lesser animal like goat, take it outside village. where no other people around and they chant \ MAM SA KHADATITI MAMSAH\" i.e whatever I am doing to you, you can do to me in my next life. So when the animal is sacrificed this mantra is recited in his ears, You are giving your life, so in your next life you will get an opportunity of becoming human being. And I who am killing you now will become an animal, and you kill me. So one day the person will wake up and stop this."

True Indian, Things which we eat are mostly fruits, vegetables, fruits are grown by plant to be eaten so the birds, animals eat it and spread the seeds far and wide for reproduce. Just like a banyan tree has millions of seeds falling on ground but it doesn't grow into new plant. why?, coz The fruit has to be eaten by a bird, pass into the birds intestine and only when the bird droppings generate into a new plant. Even food grains are never cut when they are green. Harvested only when they die and become brown. So where is the sin. we have to perform pooja to a tree if it has to cut down otherwise it amounts to a great Sin.

Karnataka govt transfers BBMP commissioner

News Network
July 18,2020

Bengaluru, Jul 18: Bringing a major change in the  administration of Bengaluru, which has emerged as a Covid-19 hotspot, the state government on Saturday transferred B H Anil Kumar out of the BBMP and brought N Manjunath Prasad to take his place. 

Manjunath Prasad, who headed the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) before being replaced by Kumar, will take over with immediate effect. The government has also placed him in concurrent charge of the Revenue Department as well as the Disaster Management, Bhoomi and UPOR.

Kumar, an Additional Chief Secretary, has been put in a place where earlier a secretary was posted. He now heads the Department of Public Enterprises. The posting would have brought him two spots down had it not been for the government upgrading it to the level of additional chief secretary. 

Anil Kumar, who was earlier praised for his work to contain the coronavirus pandemic, had faced criticism by the High Court of Karnataka for the BBMP's failure to help people in containment zones as well as other issues on the spread of the pandemic. 

Sources in the government said, pressure has been building up against Anil Kumar over the last two months after most of the Bengaluru MLAs complained to the chief minister's office.

"No MLA backed him. Everyone had a problem," a source said. 

Things came to the head with regard to a Rs 436 crore project given to KRIDL. "The issue reached the chief minister's office as all the MLAs took an issue with the way the project was awarded," a source said. 

Another source said that Kumar came under fire after a central team flagged the issue of failing Covid-19 surveillance measures in Bengaluru. The central team's criticism, it is widely believed in the government, came as the last straw.

Awareness is need of the hour as Mangaluru awaits plasma therapy centre

Resizer_15973726138190.jpg

The increasing number of covid-19 cases and confusions about a standard treatment for this ailment has been a cause of panic amongst the general public in coastal Karnataka. On the other hand the Dakshina Kannada’s covid-19 fatality rate is far higher than entire Karnataka’s covid-19 mortality rate. According to experts, plasma therapy is one of the ways that have shown remarkable results in saving the patients with serious conditions.

Although this comes as a sigh of relief to the public inflicted by fear, the problem is that there is no plasma therapy facility in Mangaluru city or other parts of the district. In fact the only place in the Karnataka which has received permission from the ICMR to set up a center is HCG Hospital, Bengaluru. 

Zakaria Parveiz, a social activist and the convener of Mangaluru-based Wellness Helpline, which has been working seamlessly in the medical and health sector amidst the covid-19 pandemic, believes that the lack of facility coupled with the lack awareness in the people in Dakshina Kannada will be a barrier in the utilization of the plasma treatment to its full potential.

“Currently the donors in the district have to travel to Bengaluru to donate plasma. Besides, many are hesitant to donate plasma,” said Mr Parveiz. "There’s also a misconception amongst the potential donors that their immunity will be reduced if they donate plasma. The lack of knowledge has created fear around this otherwise simple procedure," he added.  

D Vedavyasa Kamath, the MLA of Mangaluru City South, said that they are in talks with the district administration about setting up a plasma therapy center in Mangaluru. "We have to follow the procedure and get orders from the state government to the Health Department and the District Administration. We have already initiated the work," he said. 

U T Khader, MLA of Mangaluru constituency feels that that all the districts in the state must have plasma treatment facility. "The government should firstly issue a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the setting up of the plasma bank," he said and added that along with this the government must also make a database of the recovered patients and create an awareness encouraging them to donate plasma. Mr Khader says that the doctors and the health department should take up the cause of creating awareness about plasma donation as they are the more reliable source. “This can save many lives,” he adds.
