December 18, 2019

Five members of a school management near Bantwal in Dakshina Kannada district have been booked for the alleged enactment of the Babri mosque demolition by the students at its annual sports day. Puducherry Lt. Governor Kiran Bedi and Union minister for chemical and fertilisers D. V. Sadananda Gowda were among the dignitaries who attended the event on Sunday.

The case has been registered against RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat and four others who run the Sri Rama Vidya Kendra in Kalladka, some 30 kms from the coastal city of Mangaluru, under sections 295(A) and 298 (hurting religious sentiments) of the IPC.

The police action came on a complaint by a Popular Front of India leader Aboobacker Siddique, who lives in the same area.

“We have booked five persons of the school management following a complaint by a PFI activist. We have not arrested anyone because investigations are ongoing. There is a half-a-minute video based on which the complaint has been lodged. We are gathering evidences,” said superintendent of police, Dakshina Kannada district, B. M. Laxmi Prasad.

“The mosque was demolished by the Kar Sevaks with whatever equipment they had in their hands. With Hanuman like energy, the Babri Masjid was demolished,” said the commentator during the show.

Soon slogans like “Bolo Sri Ramachandra Ki Jai,” “Bolo Bharat Mata Ki Jai” and “Jai Hanuman” followed at the event.

Then, the students are seen jumping and waving Saffron flags. The poster is then torn into pieces. 

Meanwhile, Kiran Bedi who attended the show praised the students’ performance. She said they should get a chance to showcase their talent at the Republic Day celebrations in New Delhi. She posted a video of the event on twitter, captioning, “Another one the school children made was of the proposed Shri Ram Mandir at #Ayodhya. All such formations enabled the school ensure all of its 3800+ Students participate in the annual festival of the school, Sri Rama Vidya Kendra, Kalladka Village, near Mangalore.”
