Mangaluru: Muslim outfit opposes government's unilateral decision on temple opening


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, May 27: The state government has decided to allow opening of temples from June 1 onwards subject to following certain rules and restrictions.

Referring to the decision, Muslim Central Committee president, K S Mohammed Masood, criticized the decision of the government on opening of temples, which he termed as unilateral.

"The government is not justified in taking a decision on opening of temples alone. Why temples alone? The government should also allow mosques and churches to begin functioning. It should allow prayer centres of all religions to open," he stated.


K S Mohammed Masood

Masood reminded the government that during the Ramzan, the Muslims were inside their houses instead of visiting mosques. He termed the government's decision to allow the prayer centres of a particular religion to open from June 1 as unjustified. He advised the government not to play politics in such a sensitive issue, and provide equal opportunities to all the religions.

    It is just that Government of the day is just concerned about consolidating its revenue streams and in this case, coming through the Muzrai department and hence had temple in mind, while our well meaning honourable CM meant all places of worship.
    I really want to see if the priests will allow fumigation and sanitization if some untoward cases come up.

    What is the hurry to open places of worship in such hurry?
    Haven't we suffered enough from flaunting the lock down rules already?
    Do we need more people to suffer from sickness and poverty?

    Probably this guy has not read the news paper and understood the contents. Government has passed an ordinance stating that all temples,churches,Masjids and all religious centres will be opened effective from June 1st,2020.Then why this man has come on live and giving wrong,provocative,sensitive information and misguiding the people.He doesn't have any other work,simply coming on line and giving wrong information about the subject issue in order to get mileage it seems.Even if concerned minister has ordered the opening of temples,which is coming under his jurisdiction in view of generating income,nothing wrong in it.Whereas churches,masjids coming under other department should assure and ensure the opening of their religious centres.In this particular case,government has not committed any mistake or blunder by ordering the opening of only temples.It has passed an ordinance to open all temples,churches,masjids.Government has done right thing,not erred anywhere.People are creating problem just to spoil the relationship between other community people.Before passing any statement,one should understand correctly what the order means.

    I support Hazrath Masood ji.

    I wish that the govt. implements the rule of law in an unbiased manner.

    Personally, I would like to permanently close down all temples, mosques ,churches &c , that do not conduct their practices in private only , by ab - using loudspeakers and firecracker bombs; thereby violating the secular fabric of the Constitution and statutory and common laws by disturbing and offending the senses of all sane people in the neighbourhood who do not voluntarily wish to participate in the jamboree.

    After centuries, nature has proved to all people in the world that these places of entertainment only make the entertainers and their producers and directors rich; they are of not much use in practice.

    Keep only temples of science open. Allow the age of reason, rationality, logic , empirical proofs to questions, common decency and civility - prevail and dawn upon us.

    What "good" you are talking about that the govt is doing? If you think opening the religious places is good, then who is stopping you from going where you want. People who are concerned about others, give their advise. It’s upto you to accept it or not. Some people advised against public gathering which is dangerous especially when the situation is going out of control. You say shame on the people who criticise the govt. I would say shame on you for not understanding the situation in India and advising to following govt orders. If you want to commit suicide, do it, don’t advise others to do it.

    Religious places are sources for huge revenue for those authorities who run them. One needs to watch those videos of temple workers filling the money in bags collected from the devotees. Just like liquor shops who were permitted to re-open to avoid losing anymore revenue, the government is now deciding to open the temples. It’s suicidal. The government hardly cares if this step would backfire them. I’m sure the people with vested interest have put tremendous pressure on the government to open the temples. Are they also going to permit all the religious places belonging to other communities?
    If the government permits or not, people should avoid visiting these places as it’s very likely people to get infected. Considering the ever increasing number of infected people, my advise is to keep away from visiting these places. God is not blind or deaf that he cannot see or hear the prayers submitted from your home. Stay healthy and safe and protect your family.

    Mohit, at least you are proud of you Cheddy. Anyway, for government, irrespective of religion, everyone is equal. So, this argument of opening only temples (if it is true) holds some validity.
    Anyway, for people like you, nothing is valid other than Gau mutra. . As you claimed about congress, you have no problem when buying the MLAs to snatch power, paying then crores but they are untouchables (even their buses) otherwise.
    When paying crores to those MLAs is not corruption either for people like you.

    there are cases who got affected even after a month . so we are not sure who has got infection and who has not. so its better to close all the worship places for further some time to avoid further chaos

    Religious places in Karnataka could open on June 1 if Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has his way. The Chief Minister said he has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting that Karnataka be allowed to reopen temples, mosques, churches and other religious places.
    "We have to get a lot of permissions before opening up, so let's wait and see. If we get permission, places of worship can open by June 1," Mr Yediyurappa said on Wednesday.

    As far as I know, temples will not be open for public from June.. It will be open only to offer pujas to their respective deities by the temple priests which will be live streamed online for the devotees to watch. I feel there is a misunderstanding by the muslim community. All we have to do is wait and watch and then react than react beforehand which may result in communal tension.

    Temples are opened because all the Hundi collections can be used by the government. It is not out of any love for devotees. So there is no need to oppose it because other places of worship anyway do not contribute to the revenue but draw salary from the govt. So fail to understand this heartburn.

Otherwise it wont make any sense..apart from just preach.

    What cordial relationship are you talking about? people opposed the opening of kerala border even for genuinely sick patients during this crisis so I fail to understand what we mean by cordial relationship. There is nothing wrong in opening the temples that come under the Muzrai department as the state needs money to fight covid. The government needs money to do tests, needs money to treat patients and all of these dont come without a cost. Liquor shops were opened to generate revenue to the state. Anything that generates revenue for the state should be allowed to function as that is the need of the hour.
