Mangaluru Jan 11: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) regional secretary Sharan Pumpwell on Tuesday January 11, accused Muslim leaders of showing double standards in the case of a youth mocking Hindu deity Koragajja hurting the sentiments of Hindus.
Addressing media he said, “Hindus are deeply hurt with the rising incidents of desecration of Hindu religious places. We demand the arrest of the culprits. These incidents should not be repeated. Hence we offered mass prayers in temples all over Dakshina Kannada and Udupi district.
“The district administration failed to detain the culprit after the video went viral. Muslim leaders condemn the act saying that it is against the religion, but on the other hand they are visiting the residence of the accused and giving moral support. We suspect the involvement of invisible hands in the offence.
“We challenge the Muslim leaders to bring an order to expel the accused from their masjid limits for defaming Koragajja deity
“We also demand the leaders of Hindu religious places to prohibit public from clicking photos and shooting videos in the religious places. We have to bring control over posting photos and videos of our Gods on the social media in a derogatory manner,” he said.
District president Gopal Kutthar, secretary Shivanand Mendon and regional convenor Bujanga Kulal were present.
