Ganesha idol installed at Hubbali-Dharwad Eidgah Maidan after Karnataka HC clears the festival

New Delhi: With the Karnataka High Court upheld an order of the Dharwad municipal commissioner allowing the Ganesh Chaturthi festival to be held at the Hubballi Idgah maidan, organizers have installed Ganesha idol at Hubbali-Dharwad Eidgah Maidan early in the morning today.

Hearing the issue, Justice Ashok S Kinagi held that the property belonged to the Dharwad municipality and Anjuman-e-Islam was only a lease holder for a period of 999 years at a fee of Re 1 per year.

The municipal commissioner’s order was challenged in the court by Anjuman-e-Islam. He had claimed that the property in question was protected under the Places of Worship Act, 1991, which says no religious place of worship can be converted.
