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.

I haven't disgraced it, i respect rama shiva etc. but we believe they might be messenger of God.

Some of ur vedas scripture are similiar to that of Quran. But if u follow the teaching of vedas. U will be a muslim.

There is only one God and one religion.

Muslim is nothing but submission of will to God. Even vedas speak about that. But unfortunately u dont follow.

If u do just the opposite of vedas. Will God likes it. That is my question.

I think u should question ur Hindu pandits that if vedas says one god and should not make the idol of it,

I respect that u respect Holy Quran. And Quran also says not to degrade or insult other religion, But u can show them or teach them, its upto them who believe it or not.

Allah sent 124,000 prophets on earth. Thats why i said they might be messenger of God.

Too many Gods means they fight among each other some of the Gods view may be different. Many says some Gods asks for human blood, Animal blood. If one god doesn't answer ur prayers then u have to try with other Gods.

BURYING BETTER THAN CREMATING DEAD BODIES

1.Components of human body present in the soil
Elements that are present in the human body are present in lesser or greater quantity in the soil. Hence it is more scientific to bury a dead body, as it easily gets decomposed and mixed in the soil.

2.No Pollution
Cremating (burning) the dead body leads to pollution of the atmosphere which is detrimental to health and harmful for the environment. There is no such pollution caused by burying a dead body.

3.Surrounding land becomes fertile
To cremate a dead body several trees have to be chopped, which reduces the greenery and harms the environment and the ecology. When dead bodies are buried, besides the trees being saved, the surrounding land becomes fertile and it improves the environment.

Economical
It is expensive to cremate a dead body when tons of wood have to be burned. Annually there is a loss of crores of rupees, only because dead bodies are cremated in India. Burying dead bodies is FREE

Same land can be utilised for burying another body
The wood used for cremating a dead body cannot be reutilised for cremating another dead body since it gets converted to ashes. The land used for burying a dead body can be reutilised for burying another body after a few years since the human body gets decomposed and mixed in the soil.

Proof

Quran 7:143
Allah says when Musa (Moses) came at the time and place appointed by Us, and Allah spoke to him, he said: \O my Lord! Show me (Yourself), that I may look upon You.\" Allah said: \"You cannot see Me, but look upon the mountain if it stands still in its place then you shall see Me.\" So when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He made it collapse to dust, and Musa (Moses) fell down unconscious. Then when he recovered his senses he said: \"Glory be to You, I turn to You in repentance and I am the first of the believers.\"

Replaced sheep
Quran 37-100 to 109
God put Abraham to a most difficult trial, the details of which are described in the Quran. “O my Lord! Grant me (Abraham) a righteous (son)!” So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear. “Then, when the (the son) reached the age of serious work with him, he said: “O my son I see in a vision that I offer you in sacrifice: Now say what is your view!” (The son) said: “O My father! Do as you are commanded: You will find me if God so wills, one practising patience and constancy!” So when they had both submitted their wills (to God), and he had made him prostrate on his face (for sacrifice), We called out to him: “O Abraham! You have already fulfilled the vision!” Thus indeed do we reward those who do right. “For this was obviously a trial and We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice: and We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times: Peace and salutation to Abraham! (37:100-109).

This is the origin of the Islamic precept of sacrifice in fulfilment of God’s command provided in the Quran: “... to your Lord turn in prayer and sacrifice.” (108:2).

The aim of sacrifice, like all other fundamentals of Islam, is to imbibe piety and self righteousness. It also promotes the spirit of sacrifice for a right cause. To explain its purpose, God says in the Quran. “It is not their meat, nor their blood, that reaches God, It is their piety that reaches God”: (22:37)"

Bengaluru/ Mangaluru, Sept 21: A majority of rivers in Karnataka are in spate due to torrential rains for the past few days inundating many villages, submerging houses, vehicles and destroying standing crops.

According to the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC), all the dams are full to the brim due to the heavy downpour resulting in their floodgates being opened.

"Opening the floodgates has led to flooding in the regions in the downstream. We have sounded an alert in many areas but still some villages will face the problem," said a KSNDMC official.

According to the sources in the water resource department, Cauvery, Hemavathi, Kapila and Harangi rivers were flowing above the danger level.

The sources also said the floodgates of the dams on these four rivers have been opened.

"We have released 40,000 cusec water from the KRS today. We have alerted people in the downstream," an official in the Water Resource Department said.

Similarly, rivers in north Karnataka and interior Karnataka are also wreaking havoc.

The important dams there Bhadra, Tungabhadra, Ghataprabha, Malaprabha, Almatti and Narayanapura are full to the brim.

The situation in Udupi and Dakshina Kannada district in coastal Karnataka remained grim, which is receiving heavy rains since Friday night.

Udupi suffered the worst damage, with the rains leaving a trail of destruction in many taluks, resulting in losses amounting to crores of rupees.

A team of NDRF personnel from Mangaluru reached Udupi on Sunday to assist in relief operations, as instructed by Dakshina Kannada district in-charge minister Kota Srinivas Poojary.

Many areas in Udupi, including the 'Rajangana' at the Sri Krishna Mutt, shops and business establishments, parking areas and godowns were submerged in water.

Road connectivity to different parts of the district were lost.

Hundreds of people were evacuated from their houses in flooded areas by the NDRF personnel.

The two rivers in the district, Swarna and Sitanadi, were flowing above danger levels, official sources said.

A total of 31 relief camps were opened in the district.

Udupi Deputy Commissioner G Jagadeesha visited the affected areas and gave instructions into the personnel involved in rescue efforts.

In Dakshina Kannada district, several houses and buildings were submerged and vehicular movement was disrupted in many parts due to the rains during the last two days.

Mangaluru and Bantwal taluks received the highest rainfall in the district.

Five relief camps were opened in the district and 1,250 people were shifted to safer places on Sunday, official sources said.

The KSNDMC has informed that the rains will continue for the next two days and warned fishermen against venturing into the sea.

Udupi, Sept 20: Relentless downpour has caused massive flooding in the coastal district of Udupi throwing normal life out of gear, with all low-lying areas under four to eight feet of water. National Disaster Response Force was called in for rescue efforts as four villages in Udupi taluk were inundated.

According to Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Cell dashboard, up to 64.5 mm rainfall was recorded since 8.30 am of Sunday morning in several pockets of coastal region.

The District Collector has directed the citizens affected by the extreme weather to contact the emergency number 1077, to receive help from the assigned control room. The parking area at Udupi Krishna Mata and the city’s national highway routes have been completely waterlogged due to the heavy rains. Several shops and godowns in the district have been flooded.

Extreme rainfall has resulted in the sinking of 3 boats, causing heavy damages ranging in lakhs of rupees. During this ordeal, the fishermen managed to rescue themselves by seeking refuge in the rocks and boulders by the sea.

The road at Gundibail has worsened due to the rains. Udupi-Manipal main roads have deteriorated, while many shops and houses at Badagupete have experienced flooding.

Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa directed officials from Udupi and Bengaluru Urban district to take measures to prevent any untoward incidents. According to a release from the CMO, Yediyurappa spoke to BBMP administrator Gaurav Gupta over phone, with instructions to prevent flooding along storm water drains of the city. All officials should be available round the clock as rainfall is forecast to continue in the city, the CM said.

He spoke to Udupi DC G Jagadeesh to review the rescue efforts being carried out in the district. Udupi and other coastal districts have received very heavy rainfall over the past two days.

Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai told reporters in Udupi that army helicopters will be used for rescue efforts if required. Due to heavy rainfall in the Western Ghats, rivers are in spate. Several bridges in Karkala taluk, Udupi district were washed away, he said. Efforts are on to rescue the staff at Baje Hydro Project in the district who are stranded in the flood waters.

India Meteorological Department has issued red alert for very heavy rainfall in coastal districts till Tuesday, and in Malnad districts till Monday. Extremely heavy rainfall events exceeding 204.5 mm rainfall per day is also likely in isolated parts of these districts, along with thundershowers.
