Azaan ban in Karnataka

Days after the right wing group’s campaign for banning hijab and meat in BJP-ruled Karnataka, right-wing organizations led by Bajrang Dal and Sri Ram Sena are now demanding to ban Azaan, the Islamic call to prayer.

Some Hindu groups are planning to broadcast Om Namah Shivaya, Jai Shri Ram, Hanuman Chalisa and other devotional prayers during azaan. Sri Ram Sena has already submitted a request to authorities for stopping the use of loudspeakers at 5 am. The administration of Belagavi district and the pollution control board did not take any action on it, the outfit chief Pramod Muthalik said.

Senior BJP minister KS Eshwarappa said the community has for long been following the tradition of using loudspeakers to call for prayer, but it is disturbing students, children and patients. This is not a competition for us to play Hanuman Chalisa loudly. He has no objections to Muslims offering prayer, but if prayers are offered at temples and churches also through loudspeakers in a similar way, it will lead to conflict between communities, he said.

The state government has directed police to boost security arrangements keeping the sensitivity of the issue.

Bajrang Dal member Bharath Shetty said the campaign against loudspeakers in mosques has been started in Bengaluru and would be subsequently conducted across the state. While a BJP leader in Maharashtra has offered free loudspeakers to play the Hanuman Chalisa in public places. Anyone who needs a loudspeaker to install it in a temple can ask for free! All Hindus should have one voice! Jai Shri Ram! Har Har Mahadev! Mohit Kamboj, a billionaire bullion trader and among the richest BJP leaders, tweeted.

Such developments in Karnataka and Maharashtra come after the BJP and the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) intensify a call to ban loudspeakers playing the Azaan from mosques.

Criticizing Thackeray’s statement on azaan, Maharashtra Home Minister Walse Patil said there are several real issues such as petrol price hike, inflation, unemployment and the poor economic condition of the country to talk about but attempts are being to create tension between communities. Instead of thinking about welfare, education and development, there is an attempt to create conflict between two communities and make the country’s politics unstable. This can lead to the country getting weakened, after which we will not be able to live in harmony, Walse Patil said.
