Mangaluru, Dec 1: The appearance of provocative graffiti in the coastal city was a conspiracy by communal forces to disrupt peace in the region, feels Social Democratic Party of India.

In two similar incidents reported on November 27 and 29, graffiti in support of Lashkar-e-Taiba and threatening to behead those who insult prophet appeared on the walls of an apartment complex and in court premises in the city, respectively.

Addressing a press conference in the city today, Ataullah Jokatte, Dakshina Kannada district unit president of SDPI, expressed concern over delay by police in arresting the culprits behind the incidents.

He said that the negligence on part of the administration and the police department towards the incident resulted in its recurrence.

He said that the police had even ignored the provocative statement by RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat, who had compared the coastal town of Ullal to Pakistan. The inaction of police in this case gave more courage to anti-national elements to write anti-national slogans on city walls.

Mr Jokatte went on to claim that Sangh Parivar has a notorious history of resorting to such provocative actions in the region as a prelude to creating communal disturbance.

Local SDPI leaders Shahul Hameed, Iqbal Bellare, Anwar Sadath and Jamal Jokatte were present.

Mangaluru, Nov 18: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has suggested that let the Sunrays fall on statue of Sri Rama on Rama Navami in the temple to be built at Ayodhya, Pejawar Mutt seer Vishwaprasanna Theertha Swami, who is also a Trustee in the 15-member Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, said.

Mr Modi has suggested designing Ram Mandir in such a manner that sun rays fall on the idol of Lord Rama on the day of Ram Navami, he added.

The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has been entrusted with the task to work on it. Modi also suggested working on giving a 3D feeling for the devotees while offering prayers in front of the idol.

The 3D work has been entrusted to the Department of Science and Technology, seer added.

Swami said that the carrying capacity test of the land, where the Ram Mandir is built was being carried out by digging up to a depth of 200 ft. The seer, who had visited Ayodhya recently, said that the work on levelling land had been taken up.

The old buildings have been demolished and cleared. The pillars, ready for construction of the Mandir, are being shifted to the construction site.

The work on the Mandir is jointly taken up by L&T and Tata company. A team of vedic sculptors will be empanelled to solicit advice on the Ram Mandir work. “We have suggested names of Krishnaraj Tantri and Gundibail Subrahmanya Bhat from this area.”

Swamiji said that the drive to raise funds for the construction of Ram Mandir will begin from January 15. Volunteers will visit houses to raise funds. The preparations for launching the fund drive has begun. The Trust has decided to increase the plinth area of the temple. It may take three-and-a-half years to complete the work on the Mandir once the work begins, he said. “Ram Mandir is not only a construction of the temple, but also a revival of the culture of the land,” he underlined.
