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.

The steep decline in the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in Karnataka indicate that the infections are shifting from high population density areas to other places, a noted epidemiologist said.

After clocking up to 10,000 cases daily for over a week early this month with fatalities even touching 200 on certain occasions, the caseload has come down to about 5,000 to 6,000 in the last week.

The fatalities too have dipped from three digits to two digits.

According to epidemiologist Giridhara R Babu, the fall in the number of cases and deaths due to coronavirus is quite evident and an encouraging trend.

Some experts, however, attribute the drop in daily cases to the high testing rates and early detection of infections.

"This reduction indicates that the coronavirus infection is shifting from high population density areas to other areas," Babu, an epidemiologist at the Indian Institute of Science and a member of the Covid-19 technical advisory group for the Karnataka government, told PTI.

He explained in the other areas, higher population density may not be there.

"So, therefore, it might be in alignment with what's happening in the country. So, let us wait and watch," he said.

However, chief of the Karnataka Covid-19 War Room, Munish Moudgil attributed the high testing rate to the slump in the number of new infections.

In general, the cases are coming down as the infection is coming under control, Moudgil said.

He said holidays too have seen reduction in cases.

"But the general reduction trend is correct and proves the success of the Karnataka model of high testing leading to control of the disease," he added.

According to a health official, Karnataka has started conducting tests extensively and opened sample collection centres at crowded places in urban areas.

It is a common sight to see people sporting PPE kits under a makeshift canopy in Bengaluru at crowded places such as KR Market, Kalasipalya, Majestic, Gandhi Bazaar, Kumaraswamy Layout, Banashankari, BDA complexes, near shopping malls and bus stands, he said.

"We are taking the coronavirus head on. Instead of collecting samples at the designated places with unprecedented precautions, we have opened camps at every nook and cranny in urban areas and other crowded places," the official added.

According to him, health workers have turned into corona warriors in the true sense.

Bengaluru, Oct 27: Karnataka will go for its first elections on Wednesday for four legislative council seats amid the Covid-19 pandemic scare and the recent flood fury in several parts of the state.

The retirement of the four members of the legislative council necessitated the election.

The election should have taken place before June 30.

However, in the wake of the pandemic, it was postponed for an indefinite period. Subsequently, the Election Commission in September decided to conduct the elections on October 28.

These MLC elections are taking place for Karnataka South-East Graduates, Karnataka West Graduates', Karnataka North-East Teachers' and Bangalore Teachers' constituencies, which fell vacant due to the retirement of R Chowda Reddy Thoopalli, S V Sankanur, Sharanappa Mattur and Puttanna respectively.

Forty candidates are trying their luck in the elections in the four seats.

According to the Election Commission, Karnataka South-East Graduates constituency has 1.09 lakh voters who will cast their votes at 187 polling stations.

There are 15 candidates in the fray.

The BJP has fielded Chidanand M Gowda, Congress Ramesh Babu and JD(S) R Chowda Reddy Thoopalli.

In Karnataka West Graduates' constituency there are 11 candidates trying their luck and the fight is between S V Sankanur of BJP and R M Kuberappa of the Congress.

The constituency has 74,268 voters and 146 polling booths.

The Karnataka North-East Teachers' constituency has 29,234 voters who will vote at 147 polling stations.

Five candidates are contesting the elections there but the fight is primarily between Shashi G Namoshi of BJP, Sharanappa Mattur of Congress and Timmaiah Purle of JD(S).

The Bangalore Teachers' Constituency has 22,089 voters who will exercise their franchise at 69 polling booths. The fight is mainly between Puttanna of BJP, Praveen Peter of Congress and A P Ranganath of JD(S).

The election is crucial for the Bharatiya Janata Party as it lacks a majority in the state Legislative Council.

In the council with a strength of 75 members, Congress has 28 members, BJP -- 27 members, Janata Dal (Secular) -- 14 members, one independent, one chairman and four vacant seats.

All those who retired from the council are in the fray again.

The counting of votes will be held on November 2.

Mangaluru, Oct 20: KIOCL Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) Subba Rao on Tuesday said that after obtaining statutory clearance for operation of Devadari mines, the company had been planning to set up 2.0 MTPA beneficiation and 2.0 MTPA pelletisation plant, which will generate employment for the local youth.

Union Minister of State for Steel, Faggan Singh Kulaste also visited Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Limited (KIOCL) and reviewed its performance.

The Union Minister also studied efforts made towards implementation of new projects and the bottlenecks faced during the execution of projects.

The minister in turn emphasised that KIOCL has done pioneering work in the field of iron ore mining and beneficiation of magnetite ore in Karnataka and is a leader in the country for pelletisation. He further stressed that the centre is placing thrust on increased utilisation of pellets as a raw material in blast furnaces and sponge iron industry in the country. KIOCL can contribute immensely in utilising these resources in the national interest.

The minister lauded the efforts made by KIOCL in entering the field of solar energy and the setting up a 5 MW solar power plant in Tumakuru district.
