Creation of illegal place for prayer by the religious fanatics at Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna Railway Station in Bengaluru

Pro-Hindu organisations demand action against those who permit this illegal place for prayer

 Editorial comments

  • It is a shame that we have to demand action against those who allow illegal places for prayer !
  • Is there a single instance of Hindus ever creating a place for prayer the premises of a railway station ? Would the Railway administration allow Hindus to do so ?
  • When there is a BJP Government at the Centre, Hindus do not expect the creation of illegal prayer places on lands under its jurisdiction.

Bengaluru – On platform number 5 of Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna Railway Station of South-West Railways, it is exposed that the restroom meant for Coolies has been turned into a prayer room. The pro-Hindu groups have opposed this. In this regard, a statement was given to the executive officer of the railway station on behalf of Bajrang Dal, Rashtra Rakshan Dal, Hindu Mahasabha, Vishva Hindu Parishad and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. The statement said, even though there are many Mosques outside the railway station, allowing a prayer room on a train station platform is a conspiracy. By making it a place of worship today, it is likely to be converted into a mosque tomorrow. Therefore, action should be taken against those who allowed an illegal place for prayer. It has been warned that if this does not happen, there will be intense agitation.

How appropriate it is to allow places of prayer of other religions on the platform of a railway station ? Shri Mohan Gowda, Spokesperson, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti

On this, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti Spokesperson Shri Mohan Gowda said, currently Bengaluru has become a shelter of terrorists. In 2018, the National Investigation Agency had arrested a terrorist named Adil Asadullah who was originally from Bengal, from Bangalore Cantonment Station. In 2019, CBI officers arrested a terrorist named Mohammad Akram from the Majestic area. Police arrested a member of a Jamaat-Ul-Mujahidin originally from Bangladesh in 2020 who had taken shelter in a Mosque at Cotton Pet Bengaluru. Despite this, how appropriate is allowing a place for prayer for other religions on a railway platform ? Promptly, legal action should be taken against those who allowed this, and the permission should be revoked. It is said that this should end immediately.
