Bengaluru, May 9: The Hanuman Chalisa campaign against Azaan today reverberated across Karnataka as activists of Sri Ram Sene in Belagavi began chanting Hanuman Chalisa at 5 am from temples. 

According to the police, the incidents were reported in places including Bengaluru, Mysuru, Mandya, Belgaum, Dharwad and Kalaburagi. Some of the Sri Ram Sene activists were briefly detained by cops. 

Muthalik, who was in Mysuru, played the Hanuman Chalisa and other devotional hymns at a temple. “It is not a symbolic protest or just for a day. This will continue till the government initiates action against loudspeakers installed at mosques,” he said.

“We have launched the campaign against the state government and members of the Muslim community who are not following the Supreme Court order. In future, we will file a contempt case against all deputy commissioners for failing to implement the Supreme Court’s order,” Muthalik told media persons.

Along the lines of a similar call by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, Muthalik had on Sunday exhorted Sene activists to play Hanuman Chalisa and Suprabhata hymn from loudspeakers across temples in Karnataka from Monday if the BJP-led state government failed to act against loudspeakers installed in mosques.

Muthalik claimed several right-wing organisations have extended support to Sri Rama Sene. According to him, the organisation has contacted more than 1,000 temples across the state already.

Why do news channels give so much publicity for this? These people don't believe in God. They are just destroying peace and harmony in society.

Will they continue do chant Hunman chalisa or do other pooja 5 times to counter azan, offer special prayer once a week and fasting during Ramadan etc?

Azaan started over 1400 years ago and since the invention of microphone it is being used for azaan. Azaan will continue till the end of this world.

Our faith in Almighty is very strong and we are always praying every day for our country's betterment. May Almighty protect citizens of India from evil forces

Bengaluru, May 11: In yet another setback to the ruling BJP, the resignation by senior IPS officer P Ravindranath protesting his transfer, has taken a political turn.

Former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Wednesday alleged that the ruling BJP and Opposition Congress have come together to finish off an upright Dalit IPS officer.

The senior IPS officer had been transferred within 10 days of issuance of notice to a retired IPS officer, who is facing an allegation of submission of a fake caste certificate. "This episode clearly shows that the ruling BJP is working under whose instructions," he charged without taking the name of Opposition leader Siddaramaiah.

Ravindranath had issued a notice to retired IPS officer Kempaiah, regarding allegations of submission of false caste certificate at the time of joining UPSC services. Kempaiah, worked as the advisor of the Home Department to former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah during his tenure as the CM.

P. Ravindranath, known as an upright officer, working as the DGP of Karnataka Police Training Academy had submitted his resignation recently.

The move by the ruling BJP government to transfer him from the post at a crucial juncture of inquiry of Kempaiah led to suspicions.

Kumaraswamy further stated that there was an internal understanding between the ruling BJP and the Congress. This is a conspiracy to finish off an honest Dalit IPS officer, he charged.

Kumaraswamy while stressing that his resignation should not be accepted, stated that he had submitted resignation in the backdrop of the state government obstructing his duty and then transferring him.

"Ravindranath was trying to catch those who had submitted fake caste certificates and gotten into public service, committing a fraud to the government and society.

"What is the necessity for the BJP to support a retired IPS officer close to Opposition leader. Is it a sort of paying back for helping the BJP to attain power?" Kumaraswamy asked.

Kumaraswamy underlined that the development is a great threat to honest officers in the state.

The JD(S) has all along been making the allegation that Siddaramaiah helped the BJP to attain power by ensuring the collapse of JD(S) and the Congress coalition government in Karnataka. However, Siddaramaiah has vehemently denied this.

Ravindranath resigned Tuesday alleging harassment and caste vendetta. In his resignation letter, he wrote, "I am pained to observe the opacity shown by Karnataka Chief Secretary P. Ravikumar when I requested him to issue government order to set up protection cell as per rules of SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Rules 1995.

"I am prematurely transferred without any public interest just to harass me since I have taken legal action against people involved in the fake caste certificate issue."
