Hindutva outfit launches campaign to ban Fajr Adhan in India

Mangalore, May 25: In a controversial demand that may spark widespread uproar, a less popular Hindutva outfit has called for a strict ban on dawn Adhan (Fajr prayer call from Masjids) across India.

On Sunday morning, dozens of Hindutva activists including a controversial swamiji, who had earlier tried to commit suicide, staged a protest in front of the office of Deputy Commissioner in Mangalore to pressurize the authorities concerned to strictly impose ban on Adhan during early morning.

The protest was held under the banner of Rashtriya Hindu Andolan and some of the protesters were displaying the banner of Hindu Janjagruti Samiti, an extremist Hindutva outfit. The protest comes a day ahead of Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi 's swearing-in ceremony.

Speaking on the occasion, Sanatan Sanstha activist Vijayalakshmi said that even though India has granted religious freedom for all the people, followers of one religion should not misuse this freedom to disturb the followers of other religions in the society.

Using a derogatory word for Adhan, she said that when Muslims shout using loudspeakers every morning they should know that it would disturb sleep of a majority of people in the society.

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti activist Vivek Pai said that the right to sleep peacefully is also comes under the ambit of fundamental rights of every Indian citizen. “The use of loudspeakers should not be permitted from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. The supreme court also had directed to impose ban on playing loud music or making any type of noise between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. However, this ban has not been applied to the early morning Adhan,” he said adding that in some places Muslims deliberately cause noise pollution through loudspeakers in the early morning.  

He said that those who use loudspeakers for Adhan before 6 a.m. in the morning should be arrested and punished.

Rashtriya Hindu Andolan activist Ramesh Nayak said that many Masjids are located in the area of schools, colleges, hostels and hospitals. Loudspeakers used by such Masjids will always cause problems for students and patients, he added.

Bharat Kranti Sena chief Pranavananda Swami, who had tried to commit suicide in January this year to pressurize government to ban a Christian televangelist 's programme in Bangalore, said that protest against morning Adhan will continue until a strict ban on that ritual will come into force in the entire country.

Sri Ram Sena leader Kumar Malemar, Hindu Yuva Sena leader Nagesh Bajalekari were also present among others in the protest.

Extremists on either side have rarely any agenda to make welfare of this country, its people. Most are found to be hypocrites. I had seen one of them. Brainwashing youngsters for self gain. These people can't be stopped till the end, but they can be suppressed. If good people fail to prevail, all shall perish with the corruption they would spread in land. As far as their demand is concerned, everyone knows how bad a place they all have made their Mangalore.

When india and Pakistan was carved at that time india didn't claim that its going to make a hindu nation. Rather nehru and ghandi asked Muslims to stay in india as this is going to be a secular state. Thats y muslims didn't shift to Pakistan. And now if somebody is forcing muslims to vacate from india then he/she declining the fundamental claims of the founding forefathers of india. If someone denies the dictations of father he/she should be called a bastard who doesnt respect their parents.

Mangaluru, Sep 16: The office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax (Administration) in Mangaluru will not be shifted to Goa, according to Mangaluru South MLA Vedavyas Kamath.

The statement comes following widespread opposition to the reported move of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) to abolish the office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax in Mangaluru and merge it with the office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax, Panaji.

Speaking to media persons in the city today, the MLA claimed that there was no such proposal by the CBDT.

"The I-T office in Mangaluru has a principal commissioner, and so does the I-T office in Goa. There is a proposal to combine both the designations and appoint one principal commissioner. Under the circumstances, only the position of principal commissioner of Mangaluru may get shifted to Goa. But the news that the entire office in Mangaluru is getting merged with the office in Goa is far from the truth," he said.

Mangaluru, which is the administrative headquarters of the Dakshina Kannada district, is a commercial, industrial, educational, healthcare and start-up hub.

farmer-protest-karnataka-pti-892523-1600962145.jpg

Bengaluru, Sept 24: Movement of goods and passengers will be affected in parts of the state on Friday as several farmers’ groups have called for blocking of all the state and national highways to protest against the state and central governments’ move to amend key legislations, including Land Reforms Act and the APMC Act.

Under the banner of Raita, Dalita, Karmikara Aikya Horata several organisations have called for blocking all the state and national highways on Friday, to coincide with the countrywide bandh by the Bharatiya Kisan Union and others.

Farmers in Karnataka had deferred the decision on the strike as they expected the state government to listen to their demands. As the government tabled the bill to amend APMC Act on Wednesday afternoon, a call has been given for a state bandh on Monday.

On Friday, protests will take place across the districts under the banner of Aikya Horata even as the Kodihalli Chandrashekhar-led association has decided to limit itself to the large protest at Mysore Bank circle.

Karnataka Rajya Raita Sangha and Hasiru Sene state president Badagalpura Nagendra said Mysuru, Mandya, Chikkaballapur, Kolar, Mangaluru, Hubballi and Dhawad are some of the districts where the protest and road blockage is expected to be total. “Some parts of Bengaluru will be affected. Our main focus is on the Monday bandh. Tomorrow, we are protesting in support of a nationwide bandh,” he said.

Some districts may not see major impacts as one of the associations has stayed away. However, a member of the Aikya forum said the Monday bandh will be total.

Bus operations to be normal

Officials said there will be no change in operations of buses, including city, suburban and inter-city services, either in Bengaluru and outside. Decisions to cancel services will be taken based on the prevailing situation.

While officials in BMTC said normal operations will continue on Friday, KSRTC officials said officials at its divisions have been put on alert. “We have issued directions to all divisional controllers to ensure road deviations and smooth operation of services. They have been told to stay in touch with police authorities,” an official said.
