Hubli Eid-gah: Anjuman exudes compliance, Sangh welcomes the ruling

Hubli: Commissioner of the Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation P.S. Vastrad hoisted the national flag at the Eid-gah Maidan here on Tuesday amid tight security.


Though the Police Department anticipated trouble in the wake of the decision of Anjuman-e-Islam not to participate in the Republic Day function at the Eid-dgah Maidan, the event was totally peaceful.


Former Minister Jabbar Khan Honnalli, former Mayor Firdous Konnur, councillor Hazrat Ali Doddamani and some Muslim leaders participated in the flag hoisting ceremony at the Eid-gah Maidan.


Commissioner Vastrad hoisted the national flag and addressed the gathering with which the celebrations concluded.


In the wake of the Supreme Court verdict on the maidan issue and the decision of the State Government asking the HDMC Commissioner to hoist the tricolour, the police had made elaborate security arrangements.


Members of some Hindu organisations, however, objected to the tight security around the Eid-gah Maidan and parts of the city.


The police did not allow bursting of crackers on the maidan, but allowed it in front of the Rayanna’s statue. Once the crowd started dispersing, the police removed the barricades and vehicles started plying as usual.


Anjuman Chairman warns leaders

Though Honnalli and a few others had condemned the call given by the Anjuman-e-Islam to refrain from the celebrations at the Idgah Maidan, Chairman of Anjuman E Islam Yusuf Savanur today warned the Muslim leaders who attended flag hoisting celebration at Eid-gah Maidan of of dire consequences.


He said, the leaders by attending the flag-hoisting celebrations violated the directions of the institution.


Talking to newspersons in Hubli after the flag hoisting ceremony at Eid-gah maidan, he said action would be initiated against them after a meeting of the Board of Directors.


The Anjuman Institution had boycotted the flag hoisting at Eid-gah Maidan to protest against the celebrations by the Corporation. The members of the institution pleaded that it was their prerogative to hoist the flag at the Maidan as they had been doing so for 15 years. However, the Supreme Court had in its recent judgment given permission to Anjuman E Islam to hold prayers twice a year only.
