Will enforce SC order on loudspeakers : Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai

Bengaluru (Karnataka) – As members of a pro-Hindu organisation played devotional songs from temples early Monday morning to protest against the use of loudspeakers at mosques for Azaan, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said the Supreme Court’s order on the use of loudspeakers in public places applies to everyone and it will be implemented in a strict, but cordial, manner. No one should take law into their own hands. We saw what happened in other States, stated CM Bommai to the Muslim leaders of the Congress. The Congress leaders had met the CM regarding to the agitation by some Hindu organisations.

(Would these Muslim leaders tell the public why did they not try to implement the Supreme Court’s order regarding the loudspeakers on mosques ? When by taking cognisance of the Court’s order, the public began agitating these Congress Muslim leaders are at the forefront to oppose them. It shows how much respect they have for the Court. – Editor) The CM held a meeting of the senior officials of the Home and Law Departments and gave them some directives.

Editorial viewpoint

The public feels that such an action should not be taken only when someone starts an agitation, but it should have been implemented when the Court passes the order.
