A large number of security forces were deployed in Karnataka’s Idgah on Tuesday

Karnataka High Court allows Ganesh Puja at Idgah in Hubli city. There was controversy about it. The Karnataka Waqf Board stated that this Idgah is owned by Muslims and no other religion can work on it.

But in its order, the Karnataka High Court said that this property is not registered as Waqf.

The court upheld the Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC) order allowing Hindu organizations to celebrate the Ganesh festival on the Idgah grounds.

Justice Ashok S Kinagi of the Karnataka High Court said in his order, “There is no dispute that this property belongs to the Municipal Corporation.”
