The young Sadhwi from Madhya Pradesh, who is known for her firebrand public speeches and Muslim bashing especially in events of Sangh Parivar, on Sunday offered special pooja at Kadri Manjunath Temple in the city before heading to Nehru Maidan.

The star speaker of today’s Hindu Samajtosav told media persons on the temple premises that Mangaluru always attracts her.

Responding to a question, she endorsed the controversial ‘Ghar Wapsi’ campaign of Sangh Parivar and said that the population of Hindus will soon reach 125 crore if the Ghar Wapsi campaign was carried out in a proper manner.

Sadhwi called upon the media to promote Hindu culture and take up issues related to Hindus. All Hindus must be aware of the burning issues of Hindu society, she said.

Increasing influence of western culture, cases of love Jihad and conversion of Hindus to other religions etc. are major threat to Hindu society in India, she said, and exhorted Hindus to be united to face the challenges.

Mangaluru, Feb 22: Amid rising cases in neighbouring Kerala, authorities in Karnataka have decided to close 13 points of entry located in Wayanad and Kasaragod district in Kerala.

A long queue of vehicles was seen at the Talapady checkpost since Monday morning as officials have initiated the process of screening travellers from Kerala who enter Dakshina Kannada through the check-post.

Senior officials including District Health Officer, Tahsildar and police officials are at the spot.

All vehicles entering Mangaluru from Kerala are stopped and Covid reports of the people concerned are verified. Covid negative reports not older than 72 hours is mandatory for those entering the district from Kerala.

The measure has been taken in the wake of a spike in Covid cases in Kerala in the recent past. All inter-state borders with Kerala are closed except the borders at Talapady, Nettanige Mudnuru, Saradka in Bantwal, Menala in Puttur and Jalsur in Sullia.

Meanwhile people living along the border areas in the district are protesting against the inconvenience caused to them.

This has come as a jolt for Kerala residents living in these border areas as the open borders provide a huge succour to the people living on either side. They move freely for various needs, especially the farming community who regularly move from Kerala to engage in such activities on the lands they either own or take on lease in Karnataka.

According to travellers, Karnataka is insisting on negative RT-PCR covid test results. While Kerala has called the move unwarranted, Karnakata authorities say it is a necessary one.

Mangaluru Feb 16: Condemning the arrest of young climate activist Disha Ravi for supporting the farmers’ agitation on social media, Mangaluru MLA U T Khader said that it was the responsibility of Karnataka government to raise voice for her as she belongs to Bengaluru. 

Speaking to media persons here, the Congress leader and former minister said: “It is disgusting that BJP leaders in Karnataka defending the arrest of Bengaluru-based activist by Delhi police”

“What was the need for arresting the 21-year-old girl for social media activist? As far as I know, Toolkit is just an open document. This arrest is an assault on democracy and freedom of expression,” he said. 

Mr Khader went on to criticise Karnataka chief minister and home minister for their silence when the state’s activist is arrested by the police of another state. “It is shameful to see state government’s silence and surrender to suppression," he said.

"The motive is to silence those who stand in favour of farmers and quell the farmers' protest. The state government should come up with a clarification and break its silence over the arrest of Disha Ravi," he added.
