Belagavi (Karnataka) – It has recently come to light that Hindu sadhus have been ridiculed for advertising the biryani of Niyaz Hotel owned by a religious fanatic here. Vishva Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal, and other devout Hindu organisations strongly objected to it and submitted a memorandum to the Superintendent of Police of Belagavi, asking for strict action against the hotel. Police have closed down various branches of the hotel in the city to prevent any untoward incidents and the Police force has been deployed outside the hotel.

- Niaz Hotel of Belagavi has circulated posters of its non-vegetarian biryani through social media. A Hindu Saint is seen asking his devotees to give him biryani instead of ‘Balidaan’ (sacrifice). The poster also contained the caption “Guruji after tasting Niyaaz”.
- The caption to the post on social media said, “Our Biryani to all other Biryanis – Aham Brahmasmi (I am Brahman)”. By writing in this way, the great verse of Hindus has been mocked.
- The news has been published on the English website of Dainik Lokmat that the management of the Niyaz hotel has removed the posters hurting the feelings of Hindus and apologised to the Hindus. (The apology sought after hurting the feelings of Hindus has no meaning. Hindus demand action against the concerned officials of the hotel. – Editor)
