Sullia: Clash of groups at Subramanya - locals take out procession, organize bandh


Daijiworld Media Network - Sullia (SP)

Sullia, Oct 25: Two groups, one led by taluk secretary of Hindu Jagarana Vedike, Guruprasad Panja, and the other by Chaithra Kundapur, fought at temple town, Subramanya, on the evening of Wednesday October 24. In this incident, Guruprasad Panja, who was injured, was admitted into hospital. Condemning the incident, citizens of Subramanya took out a procession on Wednesday. Businessmen of the town have given call for a bandh at Subramanya on Thursday October 25.

Guruprasad, who sustained serious injuries in his head, was admitted into the government hospital here. Subramanya police, who took into custody Chaithra Kundapur and seven others, have been interrogating them.


Guruprasad



Chaithra, during the period she took part in a programme held at Subramanya in the recent past, had passed some controversial remarks about the 'Sarpa Samskara', a ritualistic procedure performed at Subramanya temple. Her remarks had given rise to a protracted debate in social websites, it is said.

On Wednesday, Chaithra Kundapur, Sullia taluk Hindu Jagarana Vedike secretary, Guruprasad and Ashith Kallaje, a youngster from Panja, had telephonic discussions on this issue between them. As an extension of these discussions, the groups fought near Kashikatte at Subramanya, it is being claimed.

The police had to resort to light lathi charge to disperse the crowd that had gathered near Kashikatte. While Chaithra and her seven supporters were taken into custody by the police, Guruprasad, who was bleeding in the head, was taken to the government hospital by some others. Till late night, no official complaint about this incident was registered in Subramanya police station. Subramanya station house officer said that Chaithra Kundapur and seven persons from Kundapur, said to be her supporters, have been taken into custody for questioning. He said that after verifying the genuineness of the incident based on statements of both the parties being recorded, further action would be initiated.

Although this incident happened very near the police station, the police had failed reached the spot immediately. It is said that in the light caning by the police, some people including the priest of a local shrine were injured.

The merchants and locals have given call for bandh at Subramanya on Thursday in protest against the people who acted like goons, which is not in tune with the sanctity of this temple town.

    Support hindu cultures being a Hindu, it not keep the mouth shut if you can't respect the cultures of others. Somebody from Kundapur tyring to disrespect the cultures of Sullia is not acceptable.

    I being a christian have the obligation to give respect to temples, their cultures and celebration too. Let's not abuse Hinduism here. It has a long heritage. Discuss or debate this matter as being respectful vs disrespectful and being calm and peace in the society vs creation of violence by creating gangs.

    These illiterates never understand Hinduism. They are fighting with other religions so far. now they fight with each other.

    Hinduism is not a special-class religion. It is equal to all other religions be it Islam, Baha'i Faith, Christianity, Buddhism or any other faith. Respect others and their point of view.

    In Hindu religion Swamiji who has renounced for the sake of God should be highly respected
    Here Swamiji has been sidelined and Temple Commitee has taken full control of temple
    Temple should be handed over fully to Sri Subramanya Mutt
    Regarding Chitra Kundapura s speech I feel it's only fault finding by Temple Commitee people
    In any case no one should resort to Violence of any kind
    When Chitra Kundapura spoke loudly about other religions all people clapped when she spoke about Hindu s Mara Mari why ?
    After all she is a woman and should have been treated with respect and her supporters also should have acted peacefully

    Actually temple committee should not interfere in mutts matters..
    In some other media it is given as, they have broken water connection to mutt, which should be immediately restored...
    Also people have freedom to go anywhere temple or mutt to carry religious matters...
    And temple should not charge extra for these rituals...
    Some of the points to be noted...
