The Hindu workers dropped the plan of taking procession to Jamia mosque and chant Hanuman Chalisa following  prohibitory orders on certain roads, the activists installed the makeshift idol of Lord Hanuman at Banni Mantapa near Kiranguru Circle  on Mysuru – Bengaluru National Highway chanted Hanuman Chalisa till evening.

They also shouted slogans in favour of Srirama and against Tipu Sultan vociferously demanding to return Jamia Masjid that was once Moodalabagila Anjaneya Swamy Temple. They took severe exception to the functioning of a Madrasa at the Masjid, alleging that the pillars of the Masjid with the carvings of various Gods are being defaced in the meantime. The activists who vouched on abiding by the law of the land, also raised slogans and waved saffron flags.

KSRP and DAR platoons made tight police security, cordoned off the area around Banni Mantapa to restrain the activists from going beyond the barricades.

Speaking to mediapersons Hindu Leader Puneet Kerehalli alleged that the officers did not give the information about the disputed mosque and running of Madarasa illegally  in archaeological  site.
