Ramadan: Right-wing groups press for ban on masjids’ loudspeakers in Karnataka

Bengaluru, India, April 04 (KMS): After the anti-halal meat drive, right wing outfits led by Bajrang Dal and Sriram Sena have now called for a ban on loudspeakers in masjids,.

Backing the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray, they warned that they would play Bhajans at 5:00am as a protest against Azaan from loudspeakers at masjids.

“Why are loudspeakers in mosques played at such high volume? If this is not stopped, there will be speakers outside masajids playing Hanuman Chalisa at higher volume,” he had warned while addressing a Gudi Padwa rally at Shivaji Park in Mumbai.

In a video message, Sriram Sena convener, Pramod Muthalik said the Hindu outfits have been demanding that the loudspeakers on Masjids should be banned and the Supreme Court’s order on noise pollution implemented.

The government has to instruct the masajid managements not to use loudspeakers, Muthalik said. He also said that the Supreme Court prohibited usage of loudspeakers from 10:00pm to 6:00am every day.
