Mangalore, Jan 18: The National Executive Council of Popular Front of India has declared February 17 as Popular Front Day.  It was on this date that Popular Front of India was dedicated to the people of India as a national organisation in the historic Empower India Conference held at Bangalore in 2007. The new national organisation Popular Front was formed by merging three state organisations that were working in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka. Popular Front members and well wishers all over the country will celebrate this foundation day as Popular Front Day with various programmes on February 17, 2013.   This practice will be followed on the same day in the succeeding years also.

On Popular Front Day, Flag hoisting will be held at every unit level and each district committee will organise a rally named as Unity March, followed by a public meeting.

This year Popular Front Day will highlight the theme “Together for People's Rights” through pamphlets, posters and public addresses.  The neo-liberal economic policies being adopted by the government and the intervention of neo-colonial powers in our internal affairs have put to perils the basic needs and fundamental rights of Indian citizens.  In spite of claims of development boom, people are largely denied free access even to drinking water and they are left at the mercy of corporate profit mongers for basic needs like food, fuel, cloth and shelter.  The National Executive Council of Popular Front has called upon its members, associates, well-wishers and public to convey this message of united action for people's rights on the occasion of Popular Front Day.

The past 5 years since the launching of the organisation at the national level, witnessed its entry in to most of the states in west, north and north-east of India. The membership and number of units also have shown tremendous increase.  Popular Front headquarters was shifted from Bangalore to New   Delhi. Popular Front has brought to the forefront through various campaigns,  issues like menace of communal fascism, gaining political empowerment of marginalised classes, providing  reservation in education and employment,  stopping atrocities against dalits, tribals and minorities,  repealing black laws, ending illegal detentions,  reconstruction of Babri Masjid etc.

Mangaluru: Commissioner of Police Anupam Agrawal has directed school and college heads to strictly adhere to the Karnataka Motor Vehicles (Conditions for Vehicles Engaged in Transport of School Children) Rules 2012 and submit a compliance report.

Chairing a meeting with heads of schools and colleges, Schoolchildren Safety Committee members, and school vehicle owners on Friday, the commissioner also proposed changing school and college timings to facilitate smoother traffic flow in the city.

Emphasizing the importance of adherence to traffic rules by students and parents who drop children off at schools, the commissioner highlighted the need to raise awareness among students and their parents about the safety of children in school vehicles. He stressed that drivers should avoid overloading vehicles and refrain from using shrill horns. "Action will be taken against vehicle owners for violating the rules," he warned.

The commissioner suggested measures to reduce vehicle density on the roads during the start and end of class hours. "Parking space should be arranged within school premises for school vehicles to facilitate safe boarding and alighting of students. If no parking space is available, arrangements should be made to provide parking within the campus as soon as possible," he directed school heads.

Mangaluru, June 16: Muslims in Mangaluru observed Eid al-Adha today by offering prayers in mosques and Eidgahs, exchanging greetings, and sacrificing animals, as the monsoon rain took a break in the region.

Congregational Eid prayers were held in dozens of mosques across the city. Thousands of Muslims gathered at the Masjids and Eidgahs early in the day. Hundreds of women and children also participated in prayers at some of the Masjids. Special 'dua' was offered for peace in the country and around the world, including Gaza.

Dressed in new clothes, Muslims visited their relatives' houses, where they were treated with special sweet dishes. Platters of a variety of delicious cuisines were prepared in Muslim households.

Children in festival attire added color to the celebrations. People wished each other Eid Mubarak and hugged as a large number of photographers captured the poignant scenes of the festival prayers and greetings.

In their Eid sermons, Khateebs exhorted the believers to follow the ideals of Prophet Ibraheem (pbuh), who had decided to sacrifice his son Prophet Ismaeel (pbuh) as ordained by Allah.

Eid al-Adha is an occasion of joy and peace, where people celebrate with their families, let go of past grudges, and make meaningful connections with one another. It commemorates Prophet Ibraheem’s willingness to sacrifice everything for God.
