Udupi/Kallinapur, Oct 16, 2012 : There was communal tension prevailed near Nejar , Kallianpur in the early hours of the day on Thursday, 16th October between the two communities.

It is learnt that one community offered prayers at a disputed site here at Nejar today early morning and from the other side of the communities objected this. Some of the leaders of one of the group immediately gathered at the Kallianpur Grama Panchayat office and demanded justice. The timely arrival of Udupi District Police and the necessary security arrangements under the leadership of Dr. Prabhudeva Mane D.S.P. Udupi Dist and other top police officials  the situation is under control but not yet solved.

There is still tension at Santhekatte, Nejar and other nearby areas. But District police has keeping a strict watch on the incident and patrolling the affected areas and so far no arrest have been reported following the incident.

The reason for the tension is the Eid prayers offered by the Muslim community at the disputed under construction mosque building for which the Hindu activist have secured a stay order from the court eight years back.

As per the Muslim community the mosque is coming up in an own personal purchased land to cater the growing needs of their community which cannot accommodate all such events in the small mosque nearby.

The demonstrators threatened to stage  further protest and block the kemmannu main road if further prayers are offered in the afternoon and in the evening in this disputed building. More details are awaited...

Kemmannu incident is a family feud and about a member taking revenge on the others. Unfortunately the residents (mostly woman, left alone by the gulf working husbands) were terrified and helpless. Sometimes everyone looks helpless against money and muscle power. Hope the aggressor understand the value of humanity and allow the people use the foot path used by many families.

@Resident Kemmannu. There are many incidents all over Kemmannu blocking the pathways by land owners preventing others access. There are many incidents in kemmannu. A few months back a clash between man and women reported in news papers. Imagine once in 1950s there was no road in Kemmannu the land was generously donated for the road by some of the land owners of Mount rosary because the land from Santhe Katte to Kemmannu via Nejar Hampankatte and Gudyam widely belonged to Late Jhon Prabhu, Gibba souz, Rebello familys and some other locals inheritances of Varga Patta and Mulageni they have opened up a road for the initial bullock cart in early 19th century later by 1940s the red bus Manjunath with wooden benches commuted the people from Kemmannu. fencing is bad, Giving a way for the neighbors is just you have the right to enter the heaven......

People are subconscious, They are tend to pray but in other word they prey on others. God is everywhere we should find God in others Jossey you see how these fools say New Life and go out of the pavithr sabha once first directly appointed disciple Peter and Vatican? now everywhere the turmoil because people do not love one another instead in the name of praising they just hold hands of others wife and sing and dance...

Jossey the place is restricted due to stay order, respect the law of the land first then religion. I think those who took action also wrong and those who went for the prayers also wrong. Law of the country should take charge. When there is a stay order the place is no good to use.

@ Jossy, no use of giving any wake-up call to these people. For your information, there was also some tension in Kemmannu(behind church) yesterday for installing fenced barricades just to close the foot path once their ancestors walked, residents panicked, thonse Panchayat members, local political leaders and elders arrived to find a solution and the results unknown and sad to note that the incident was not reported by this website.

These guys can do Rave Parties and Nanga Nach in St. Mary’s Island but minorities cannot pray. Santhekatte/kallianpur/kemmannu guys please wake up before it is too late.....
