Mangaluru, Nov 26: Hindu Jagarana Vedike (HJV) has urged Dakshina Kannada district deputy commissioner Dr Rajendra K V, to respect the sentiments of the Hindu community and withdraw the complaint lodged against Jagadish Karanth, who is involved with the sacred duty of serving the interests of Hindutwa.
Speaking at a press meet here on Thursday November 25, provincial secretary of the Vedike, Radhakrishna Adhyantaya, felt that registration of case against the regional organizing secretary of the Vedike, Jagadish Karanth, is an attempt to muffle the voices of those fighting for the protection of the holiness of Karinjeshwara temple.
Mining activities conducted around Karinjeshwara temple have been interfering with the sanctity of the temple. Hindu Jagarana Vedike has been fighting against such things since long. As various complaints and petitions filed with various government departments failed to evoke any action aimed at providing justice, the Vedike had organized rally and people's awareness meeting, he clarified.
He accused the police officials from Bantwal of planning to bring down the Bhagava flag hoisted in the said temple. He asserted that a protest will be carried out against this effort too.
