U T Khader slams BJP govt for demolition of temple

Mangaluru, Sept 15: The demolition of Hindu temples in Karnataka has once again proved that the destruction is the culture of Bharatiya Janata Party, said former minister and incumbent Mangaluru MLA U T Khader. 

Addressing the press in Mangaluru, the Congress leader said: “BJP has a long history of demolition and destruction. Destruction is the part and parcel of BJP culture.”

"The demolition of the temple was sponsored by the BJP- led government. Without the government’s approval, such a sensitive issue cannot be undertaken," he said.

MLC and District Congress Committee President Harish Kumar said that the true colour of the BJP government was revealed by the demolition of temples in the state.

“For demolishing a temple in Mysuru, the government is now pointing its finger at the DC and Tahsildar. Without the government’s permission, will an officer take a step to demolish a temple?” he sought to know.

"When several directions of the Supreme Court are not being implemented, why was the direction of the demolition implemented in a hurry? There was direction from the Supreme Court during the UPA government as well. Only the BJP government can demolish a temple. The Congress never indulged in such acts," he added.

"The protest by the Hindutva organisations against the demolition of the temple was just an eyewash. The BJP government failed to convince the Supreme Court of the need for saving religious structures. The demolished temple should be rebuilt," he said.

Mangaluru, Oct 22: The city police have arrested a man, who allegedly attempted to burgle a temple and damaged idols at Baikampady Industrial Area on the outskirts of the city. 

The arrested has been identified as Rohitashwa, a resident of Kulai area in Mangaluru. He was working in Baikampady as a labourer for the few years. 

The theft and desecration at the Hindu temple had come to light on October 17. This had led to mild communal tension in the region with saffron activists resorting to social media campaign to hold Muslims responsible for the incident. 

It is learnt that saffron outfits had also planned to stage a protest. However, the arrest of the accused in the case has forced them to drop the plan.  

According to the police, Rohitashwa had planned to steal gold, jewelry, and cash from the donation box. “When he could not get any of these, he resorted to damaging the idols placed inside the temple” Mangaluru Police Commissioner, N Shashi Kumar said.

The accused was produced before the court, which sent him to judicial custody.
