Mangaluru: Karnataka BJP leader K S Eshwarappa, while addressing a public gathering in Mangaluru sparked a new controversy. On Monday, he said loudspeakers used for ‘Azaan’ (Muslim call for prayer) disturb people, especially students who study for examinations and patients in hospitals.
“Wherever I go this (Azaan) is a headache for me. No doubt this will end soon as there is a SC judgement. PM Modi asked to respect all religions, but I must ask can Allah hear only if you scream on a microphone?” said the former state minister.
Eshwarappa went on to say, “Hindus also pray in temples. We have more faith than them and it’s Bharat mata who protects religions. But if you say that Allah listens only if you pray using a microphone, I must question if he is deaf. This issue must be resolved.”
Justifying his statements, he said, “Exams are going on in Karnataka right now, students and parents are complaining that due to Azaan & loudspeaker, students are unable to study properly. This is not a good thing.”
Eshwarappa’s comments come as Karnataka prepares to go to the polls.
