Mangalore, May 25: A Hindutva outfit has called for a strict ban on dawn Adhan (Fajr prayer call from Masjids) across India. Hindutva activists including a swamiji, staged a protest in front of the office of Deputy Commissioner in Mangalore to pressurize the authorities concerned to strictly impose ban on Adhan during early morning.

The protest was held on Sunday morning under the banner of Rashtriya Hindu Andolan and Hindu Janjagruti Samiti.

Addressing the gathered, Sanatan Sanstha activist Vijayalakshmi said that even though India has granted religious freedom for all the people, followers of one religion should not misuse this freedom to disturb the followers of other religions in the society.

Vivek Pai, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti activist said that the right to sleep peacefully also comes under the ambit of fundamental rights of every Indian citizen. “The use of loudspeakers should not be permitted from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. The Supreme Court also had directed to impose ban on playing loud music or making any type of noise between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. However, this ban has not been applied to the early morning Adhan,” he said adding that in some places Muslims deliberately cause noise pollution through loudspeakers in the early morning.

Ramesh Nayak, Rashtriya Hindu Andolan activist said that many Masjids are located in the area of schools, colleges, hostels and hospitals. Loudspeakers used by such Masjids will always cause problems for students and patients, he added.

Sri Ram Sena leader Kumar Malemar and Hindu Yuva Sena leader Nagesh Bajalekari were also present among others in the protest.
