Bengaluru (Karnataka) – Sri Ram Sena had begun its agitation in Karnataka on 9th May, to oppose the loudspeakers on mosques. Hanuman Chalisa was played at 5 a.m. in around 1,000 temples in the State. The agitation was held in Districts Vijaypur, Mysuru, Belagavi, etc. in the State. Shri Pramod Muthalik, the founder of Sri Ram Sena had invited more than 1,000 temples in the State to play Hanuman Chalisa on the loudspeakers in their temples. They had warned the Government to remove the loudspeakers from mosques by 8th May; but the Government failed to do so, hence, they started the agitation. To avoid any untoward incidents due to the tension in the said areas, additional Police were deployed. Along with this, precautionary order of ‘Alert’ was also given to the Police. All Police stations also were kept on alert.

Show courage like Yogi Adityanath, the CM of UP – Shri Pramod Muthalik
While talking to the media, Shri Pramod Muthalik said that the CM of the State Basavaraj Bommai and the Home Minister Araga Jnanendra should show courage like the CM Yogi Adityanath of UP. How CM Yogi made Muslims remove the illegal loudspeakers from the mosques. He also has instructed to keep the volume of the loudspeakers to reach only the premises, not causing any disturbance to outsiders. People here are enraged because no action is being taken against the mosques despite the order of the Court. The Government has warned us that Police will take action against the agitators. We are not going to be affected by this. The Government cannot impose ‘Dadagiri’ on us. The Government should remember that the people have elected them. We are not against Azaan and namaz. We are against the use of loudspeakers for these.
