Ganeshotsav will not be held at Idgah ground in Bengaluru: SC
Earlier today, the Supreme Court had ordered status quo with respect to the Idgah land at Chamarajpet, over 400 km away, saying the High Court will decide on the ownership of the 2.5-acre land. At the same time, there will be no Ganeshotsav ceremony and Namaz will not be held 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.
During the hearing, Justice Indira Banerjee said, “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.
