Mangaluru, Sept 24: Thousands of Muslims thronged the house of Ibrahim Musliyar Bekal at Montepadavu on the outskirts of the city to catch a final glimpse of their spiritual guru.

Bekal Ustad, who was the Qadhi of Udupi, Chikkamagaluru, Hassan and Shivamogga amalgam Jama’at breathed his last earlier today at a private hospital in Mangaluru after months of illness.

His mortal remains were kept at Montepadavu for public viewing. In spite of fear of covid-19, thousands of people from different parts of coastal Karnataka reached the remote village within hours.

Leaders from various political parties, social and religious organisations were also among those who paid their last respect to the departed soul. A pall of gloom has descended on Muslim colonies across coastal Karnataka.

There were hundreds of volunteers in Montepadavu to prevent chaos among mourners. Police have also tightened the security arrangements.

Bengaluru, Sept 26: Hardliner BJP leader and Member of Parliament from Bengaluru South Tejasvi Surya has been appointed new president of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), party's youth wing.

Surya will replace another BJP MP Poonam Mahajan as the president of the BJYM.

The 29-year-old lawmaker won the 2019 Lok Sabha election by defeating Congress' B K Hariprasad by over 3 lakh votes.

Surya was an active member of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and was even the general secretary of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM).

The BJYM, like the BJP has a similar structure, with a President, Vice Presidents, General Secretaries, Secretaries and Executive members, with the National Executive being the highest decision making body of the BJYM. At the state level, a similar structure is in place.

Many prominent BJP leaders including Kalraj Mishra, Rajnath Singh and Shivraj Singh Chouhan have been the national presidents of the BJYM in past.
