Mob Entering Madrasa Heritage in Karnataka on Dussehra, performing Puja

The crowd shouted “Jai Shri Ram” and other slogans, standing on the stairs of the madrasa.


A crowd taking part in a procession for Dussehra is said to have broken into a heritage madrasa in the Bidar district of Karnataka. They chant slogans and even perform puja in one corner of the building. A police case has been registered against nine people, but no arrests have been made. Islamic organizations have promised to protest if no arrests are made tomorrow.

Built in the 1460s, Mahmud Gawan Madrasa in Bidar belongs to the Archaeological Department of India. Heritage architectural works are also on the list of national monuments.

Police said the mob broke the madrasa lock on Wednesday night.

They shouted the slogans “Jai Shri Ram” and “Hindu Dharam Jai”, stood on the stairs of madrassa, before moving to a corner to perform a puja. Video from the place going viral online shows a huge crowd standing on the stairs, trying to get inside the building.

A local policeman said a case has been registered against nine people, but no one has been arrested yet.

Several Muslim organizations from Bidar condemned the incident and organized protests, demanding the arrest of the perpetrators. They have warned that a large protest will be held after Friday prayers if the accused are not arrested.

Asaduddin Owaisi, head of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, criticized the state’s ruling BJP over the incident, alleging that it promoted such incidents to “lost Muslims” memory”.

Critics have accused the BJP of turning parts of the state into a conduit for community experiments. The allegations began after the hijab controversy, and spiked when Hindu groups insisted on banning Muslim traders from temple fairs.

In August, Ganesh Chaturthi is held at Hubballi’s Idgah courtyard.
