Puttur: Row over Mosque President’s Car Parked on Temple Ground

Puttur: Tension prevailed after a car belonging to Ummer Shalimar, president of a mosque in Kokkada, was found parked on the Sankranti ground belonging to Shri Vaidyanatheshwara Vishnumurty temple on Thursday.

Crowds from two communities began gathering. Nellyadi and Uppinangady police arrived on the spot. A few Hindu activists alleged that Ummer had come with his supporters and had threatened Shashikant.

Temple trustee Satyanarayana Bhat filed a complaint saying that the sanctity of the temple had been defiled by Ummer by parking his car there.

The police dispersed the crowds and took the car and Ummer to the police station for investigations.

  1. What a joke, a religious person! Quote ” Temple trustee Satyanarayana Bhat filed a complaint saying that the sanctity of the temple had been defiled by Ummer by parking his car there.” Unquote…..
    If this is the calibre of the so called learned priest, we Indians, who call ourselves, “secular” “tolerant” blah blah blah , need to introspect and see where all this communal hatred will lead our country to.
    Many a time I see our fellow Mangaloreans adding fuel to the fire by hate tinged comments, why this only in DK a district known for its intellectuals???? Or is it the Politicians who brain wash our rational thinking ???
    We lost a noted write in Dr. Kalluri, who fearlessly expressed his views, it is left to an individual to wear the cap if it fits him, sadly we have a heard mentality and the irony is people worship cows. God help us.

  2. Dear Benne Vaasu,
    I’ve a feeling that there is more to this story than reported here. Many of these incidents escalate after repeated disputes and confrontations. There could be a political angle to this story as well. Remember, all the ‘church attack’ propaganda after Modiji came to power? I agree that communal fights need to stop as they tend to destabilize our society. However, all parties and groups need to share these sentiments. We can’t blame one group when other groups continue with their bad behavior.

    • Original R.Paimaam of USA claims “However, all parties and groups need to share these sentiments. We can’t blame one group when other groups continue with their bad behavior.”

      BUT, THE GROUP YOU ADHORE HAS ITS VICTORY AND CONTINUED HOPES ON FUTURE STRANGLEHOLD ON THE COUNTRY, ON THESE VERY SAME “SENTIMENTS” AND THE OTHER GROUP WHICH OPPOSED DIVISIVE POLITICS, IS PENALISED FOR BEING EQUANIMOUS!

      YOU EQUATE THE WRONGDOER AND THE WRONGED, AS YOUR ADOPTIVE “MOTHERLAND” – THE USA, DID TO VICTIM INDIA AND THE WRONGDOER PAKISTAN, FOR THE LAST SIXTY YEARS.

      BOTH, YOU AND THE USA, POSE TO BE OVERSMART!!!
