Karnataka police have reportedly filed an FIR against a Hindu activist as he threatened to destroy the Eidgah tower situated in Eidgah Maidan.

Story so far: The president of Vishwa Sanatan Parishad, Bhaskaran has run into trouble with the Chamarajpet police under the charges of attempting to create communal discord in society.

  • Recently, the BBMP declared that the controversial site now falls under the ownership of the Revenue Department.
  • Local Congress MLA Zameer Ahmad Khan stated that the national flag would be hoisted at the site to mark the 75th Independence Day. However, permission for the celebration of the Ganesha festival will not be granted.

  • Further, he threatened to gather a large number of people from Hindu organizations across the country to demolish the Eidgah qibla wall.
