As non-Hindu traders and vendors had been denied permission to carry on business during annual temple fairs in many parts of Karnataka, BJP legislator Anil Benake has said that everyone can ply their trade and it is for the people to decide where to buy what.
Benake, BJP MLA from Belagavi north has cited the Constitution to prove his statement saying that there is no question of imposing any restrictions during the temple fair, so they will not do so.
“We will not allow it (imposition of restrictions),” Benake told the media.
Benake further added that “Everyone has the opportunity to carry out their activities, but people have to become clever. People have to decide where to buy what.”
Initially, banners had been placed during the annual Kaup Marigudi festival in Udupi district restricting entry of non-Hindu vendors and traders. Later, similar banners were displayed at Padubidri temple festival and a few other temples in Dakshina Kannada district as well.
Some Hindu activists have also submitted memoranda to officials in different parts of the Karnataka citing the Karnataka Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments Act, 1997.
