Police flag march over Idgah Maidan

Congress MLA Zameer Ahmed Khan told the media that no prayers would be allowed at the ground but the national flag will be hoisted there on August 15.

Bengaluru: Karnataka Police on Friday carried out a flag march in the city’s disputed Idgah Maidan after some Hindu groups expressed a desire to hold a Ganesh prayers during Vinayak Chaturthi.
The tension surfaced after Revenue Minister R Ashoka declared that the disputed Idgah Maidan was owned by the Revenue Department. This claim is in variance to what is claimed by the Waqf Board.
Congress MLA Zameer Ahmed Khan told the media that no prayers would be allowed at the ground but the national flag will be hoisted there on August 15.
Vishwa Sanatan Parishad President S Bhaskaran said it was unbecoming of Khan to make such a statement.
The police have filed a case against Bhaskaran on charges of promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language and others.
