Bengaluru: In the breaking development, The Karnataka High Court has given nod to celebrate the two-day Ganesh festival at the grounds of Hubli Idgah. The High Court gave this order while delivering the verdict late on Tuesday (10.45 pm). The High Court rejected the application of Anjuman Islam and allowed the celebration of Ganesh festival with certain conditions. Let us tell you that there was a lot of controversy going on in the grounds of Idgah regarding Ganesh Puja. Earlier also the Karnataka High Court had given permission for the festival here.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused permission to hold Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations at the Idgah ground in Bengaluru and ordered status quo to be maintained by both the parties at that place. The top court said that in the last 200 years, no such celebrations of Ganesh Chaturthi have been organized at the Idgah ground. He asked the parties in the case to approach the Karnataka High Court for redressal of the dispute.
The Karnataka HC started the hearing at 10 PM on Tuesday. Earlier, the Supreme Court on Tuesday passed an urgent order according to which no Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations can be held at the Idgah Maidan. The state was insisting on giving permissions to set up pandals for the Hindu festival, and the High Court, too, said it could do so.
However, the Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday halted the Karnataka High Court and state government’s decision to allow Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations at Bengaluru’s Idgah Maidan on Wednesday and ordered the maintenance of ‘status quo’ in the matter.
