Mangaluru: Remnants of old temple crop up - Malali mosque renovation stalled temporarily


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Apr 23: After deputy commissioner Dr Rajendra K V instructed to maintain status quo and stop the works related to renovation of mosque at Malali as a controversy of siting of remnants of olden Hindu temple on land of mosque cropped up, city police commissioner N Shashikumar said that, as a precaution police security is put up near the mosque till the issue is resolved.

Mohammed Mamu, president of the Mosque said, “This mosque has a history of 900 years. Outer portion of the mosque was demolished for renovation. The inside look of the mosque is portrayed as a temple in social media. That created confusion. Revenue officials have taken all documents pertaining to the mosque and have assured to resolve the matter within a week.”

Sharan Pumpwell, divisional secretary of VHP said that they are suspecting that some old Hindu temple was demolished in order to build the mosque. He has asked for inspection of the site by archaeologists.

Third civil and JMFC court also passed an interim stay order on all works pertaining to renovation at Malali mosque. The court held inquiry on the petition filed by Dhananjaya, resident of Ganjimath. The court also instructed not to create any damage to the part of building that resembles temple. It has also prohibited entry of members of mosque committee and other followers of the religion from entering the building.

Meanwhile, Munir Katipalla, president, state unit of DYFI, said, “What business Sharan Pumpwell, who is creating chaos not to allow Muslims to do business during temple fairs, has inside the mosque? In fact, Sharan Pumpwell and his team should have been arrested for having entered the mosque illegally in a bid to disturb the communal harmony. It is really condemnable that police commissioner and deputy commissioner are bending to the law breakers and maintaining silence in front of majority religious fundamentalism, which has political backing at present.”

    Don't fight and waste your precious time . Acts7:48 says God almighty doesn't dwell in temples made by human hands. Again Isaiah 66:1 also says Heaven is my throne and earth is my foot stool What kind of a house you can build for me? If you understand this much you will not run after buildings for God Again during and after Jesus time prophets and apostles never stayed under buildings. They went ends of the earth by preaching good news and later died martyrdom.

    This is old Dravidian architecture which used to be followed including in Masjids of Tulunadu and Kerala not limited to Hindu temple alone...Just google images of old Masjids of Kerala and also Bunder masjid which has 1000 years history.. Just because Muslims now stopped building in that style doesn't make it not Masjid...Sanghis doesn't claim authorship over any architecture...

    No one can be sure what happened 900 years ago... not fair to accuse and stop myslins from renovating the mosque now... if we have tske retributions for centuries old incidents, most of the Indians need to be held accountable... tribals living in forest areas are actually first righteous owners of the land... what we do now? We all leave our property and go where??

    Well, one political party and some organizations have decided to live in the past and make profit out of chaos. Because there is nothing to boast about present.

    It's an Indo-Islamic structure built with wood. These are the same resemblance of India's first masjid in Kerala or some oldest Masjid of Mangalore. Those days there weren't Muslim wood sculptures and this wood work was done by Hindus who also did the similar design for Temples. Very old Masjids interiors are all made up of wood with extraordinary design. This doesn't mean there was any temple before. Some hate mongers will always create issue from nothing. Irrespective of few knowing the history they create nuisance on earth. The irony is a Goonda who is always behind Muslims entered the premises with DCand giving lecturer to halt the work and this DC listening to a goonda passed an order to halt.
