Muslim vendors pushcarts vandalised in Karnataka - DOTO

Muslim vendors pushcarts vandalised in Karnataka

Sri Ram Sene members wearing saffron shawls vandalised at least four pushcarts belonging to Muslims near the Sri Nuggikeri Hanumantha temple on 9 April 2022. They threw hundreds of watermelons and coconuts on the road. Nabisab, a watermelon seller, told the media, “About 8-10 people came and I was all alone. They did not even speak properly but vandalised the entire store. I had bought six quintals of watermelon and only one quintal was sold.” Locals said the right-wing activists had protested demanding removal of Muslim traders in front of the temple and submitted a memorandum. The activists barged in while the temple authorities were busy inside. The incident comes after right-wing activists launched a campaign against allowing Muslim vendors near temples. The BJP government has cited a 2022 rule issued under the Karnataka Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments Act, 1997, to support the bar on non-Hindus.
