New Delhi: There will be no Ganeshotsav celebrations at Idgah ground in Bengaluru. The Supreme Court has directed to maintain the status quo in this matter. This decision of three judges came after a hearing of about two hours. Justice Indira Banerjee said during the hearing, “Give us some forgiveness from Lord Ganesha.” The Supreme Court said that the order to maintain the status quo would be applicable to both the parties.

Earlier, a three-judge bench started hearing on the issue of celebrating Ganeshotsav at Idgah ground. Arguing on behalf of the Waqf Board, Kapil Sibal said that we have this property for 200 years and no other community has ever performed any religious ceremony here. Sibal said, “The Supreme Court has given a verdict in our favor and no one has challenged it before and now in 2022 it is being said that it is disputed.

The apex court said that the issue raised in the plea may be taken up in the high court and ordered status quo as of today with regards to the land in question, meaning the ground cannot be used for the festival.

A three-judge bench was hearing a plea by the Karnataka Waqf Board challenging the Karnataka High Court’s order which allowed the use of Idgah Maidan for Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations.

On August 26, the high court had permitted the state government to consider and pass appropriate orders on the applications received by the Deputy Commissioner of Bengaluru seeking the use of Idgah Maidan at Chamarajpet.
