After Hijab its business row at temple premises

For representation purpose only

Bangalore, March 23: Even as the Hijab row is green in the minds of people, another tug of war between the two communities is likely to be sparked off over the issue of doing business near temples.

The issue which kicked off at Coastal Karnataka and Shivamogga had spread to Bengaluru too.

Traders from Muslim community were not allowed to carryout business on Wednesday at historical Anjaneya Temple at Upparpet. Activists from Hindu outfit ensured that the footwear shops were shut down.

Nearly 30 members from a Hindu outfit demanded that people from other faith should not be allowed at the temple premises to make business. Authorities of Muzrai, police and temple management assured to resolve the issue.

A member of temple authority said that the issue will be resolved in the next 30 days. Of the 8 shops at the temple premises two were leased to Muslim community. Since the issue is going out of control they will not be allowed to make business, the authorities assured.

In an interesting development on Wednesday, the Maari Gudi temple management at Kapu town in Udupi district of coastal Karnataka has decided not to allow ‘people from other faith’ to do business on its land during the annual temple festival on the request of certain pro-Hindu organisations.

The organisations said the Muslims had supported a bandh against the High Court verdict on the hijab issue, which showed their disregard for the law of the land and the judicial system in India.
