Mandya: Thousands of Hanuman Maladharis gathered in front of Jamia Masjid in Srirangapattana in the District on Sunday December 4 urging to allow them to offer Pooja in Jamia Mosque claiming that it was Anjaneya Temple. There was a tense atmosphere for some time. In the wake of Hanuman Jayanti, Hanuman Maladharis tried to besiege the mosque.

The Hanuma Sankeertana Yatra started at Anjaneyaswamy Temple in Ganjam. Thousands of Hanuman Maladharis with saffron flags marched with chants of Jai Shriram, Jai Hanuman. However, when the Yatra comes near the Jamia Masjid, Hanuman Maladharis, sat on the road stating that the mosque land is our’s and that we want to build a temple. The Temple of Anjaneya was demolished and the mosque has been built, they claimed.

The police who were in large numbers forced the Hindu workers to continue their yatra towards the venue. The Hindu Leader Ullas said that the Masjid area belongs to the Hanuman Temple. We have decided to construct Anjaneya Temple at Mudalabagilu, he said and added that thousands of Hindu workers participated in Yatra after Hindu workers created awareness by visiting door to door in villages.

The District Administration banned the sale of liquor from December 4, 6.00 am to December 5, 6.00 am. The Police under the leadership of Mandya SP N. Yetish made tight security with 7 deputy SPs, 15 police inspectors, 9 DAR and 6 KSRP platoons, a total of more than 1500 policemen.

In November, the Bajranga Sene filed a writ petition in State High Court requesting it to order for conducting survey of the mosque which was originally a Temple. The petitioner contended that during the tenure of 18th-century ruler Tipu Sultan the temple was forcibly converted into a mosque. But it was clearly mentioned in the Mysore Gazetteer that the Moodalabagilu Anjaneya Temple was converted into a mosque. The petitioner also said that the mosque has clear signs of Hindu scriptures, and pictures of animals on the walls.
