Ganesh celebrations at Hubballi Idgah: Muslim body challenges HC order in Supreme Court

Bengaluru: Anjuman-e-Islam has approached the Supreme Court and submitted a plea questioning the Karnataka HC’s orders allowing Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations at Hubballi’s Idgah ground. 

A day after Karnataka High Court allowed festivities, Hindu leaders on Wednesday morning installed a Ganesh idol in Hubballi’s Idgah ground.

In two separate courtroom battles on Tuesday, the Supreme Court ordering a freeze in the case said no to Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations at the Idgah grounds in Bengaluru while the Dharwad bench of the Karnataka High Court late at night turned down a petition filed after the Supreme Court order and allowed the celebrations at the Idgah maidan in Hubbali.

Indian Express reported that in the latest development, the Anjuman Islam has approached the Supreme Court, questioning the Karnataka HC’s orders allowing festivities at Hubballi’s Idgah ground. 

The local civic body decided to hold Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations on the Eidgah grounds in Hubbali on Tuesday.
