Just visited the Adi Shankaracharya's establishment (Sharada Peetham) at Sringeri, Karnataka. What surprised me, & even shocked me was the fact that at the free meal (Prasadam) served there,

I saw some women wearing full #Burqa , with a band of their children & their men eating the Prasadam.

Mind you, Adi Shankaracharya represents core #Hinduism and people visiting the place are staunch #Hindus .

Obviously, the meal cooked was not at all #Halal and yet these #Burqa - wearing females and their families had no problem eating their meal there.

Needless to say, no one objected to them partaking the meal and they were served as happily as anyone else.

Rules framed in 2004. Created issue only in 31 Dec 2021: Yashpal, school management at #Udupi. No #Hijab worn in classrooms. In earlier school also the girls were not wearing #Hijab. Uniform Rules were in place. PTA, management, Principal together in forming rules. @IndiaToday
Dec 31 girls came wearing #Hijab. Before that no Hijab worn. We have pictures. No #Hijab worn in class. Issue created by vested interests. Some started wearing Hijab & became like activists. 965 students. 90 Muslims. Only 6 Muslim students created issues: Yashpal to @nabilajamal
Because of 6 students, 959 students are facing a problem. School has rules. We have told the 6 protesting students there will be no compromise on rules in Government rules in a Government school: Yaspal. #Udupi is an education hub. #NoHijabRule stays. They can go to any school.

🪡 Much of the outrage on the #HijabRow asks the naive question: “Why is it happening in #Karnataka?”

Answer: “Why are you surprised?”

The startup state was an early-stage investor in #Hindutva. Its reputation as a #Hindutva laboratory precedes #Gujarat and #UttarPradesh.
2️⃣ #BJP’s political quest for the Babri Masjid only began in the late 1980s. In #Karnataka, the ground to reclaim Baba Budangiri, a Sufi shrine in #Chikamagalur district, had been laid a decade before #Ayodhya became common parlance, in 1978.

3️⃣ In 1990, when L.K. Advani’s ‘Rath Yatra’ passed through #Karnataka, seven people died in Bidar in communal riots. But 600 km away, in and around #Bangalore, at least another 33 people died in clashes in 5 locations. It was not an accident.

#Udupi Another #Hijab row breaks out at Government college in #Kundapura. Management under the new state guidelines has asked girl students not to come college wearing hijab. Girl students refused. Then several #Hindu boys came to college wearing #saffronshawls (1/2) #karnataka
A meeting was also conducted by management along with local MlA with parents of the students. A parent of the girl student can be heard saying we didn't discriminate. We sent our students during all the #hindu festivals. Why is that you are discriminating with out students (2/2)
#Update:#HijabisOurRight Principal of the #Kundapura college didn't allow #Muslim girl students wearing #Hijab inside campus.Students argued- is it fair to do this two months before the exams? Why are you ruining your future? These rules should have been made earlier. Why now?

Why Tulu should be included in 8th schedule of Indian Constitution?

#Udupi – An Idol to Rekindle Memories

In the south west coast of India, in the town of Udupi, #Krishna continues to give us a glimpse of His childhood form through an idol that He had gifted to Rukmini, His wife more than 5100 years ago.
As legends tell, inorder to satisfy His mother Devaki’s desire to relive the moments of His childhood, #Krishna had an idol sculpted out of Saligrama stone by Vishwakarma, the architect. This idol was later given to Rukmini.
After #Krishna’s and Rukmini’s times, this idol in Dwaraka got buried & covered in the sand of that region called Gopichandan.

A thread about #Udupi Pejavara Matha's Vishvesha Tirtha Swamy Ji:

1) ~800 yrs ago, Madhwacharya started a unique parampara in Udupi - 8 mathas & a paryaya system. Each Swamy would worship Udupi Krishna for 2 years. Then the next.

Till now 300 Swamy's have followed this system.
2) Pejavara is 1 of Udupi's 8 mathas. Vishvesha Tirtha was very lucky to get 5 Paryaya chances. First after Vyasa Raya!

He had been a Sanyasi for 82 years!!!

Incidentally, he was given Sanyasa deeksha at Hampi, the capital of the richest kingdom on the planet 500 years ago.
Udupi Pejavara Sri's social consciousness was awesome.

Be of Latur's earthquake victims in Maharashtra, earthquake victims in Gujarat, flood or drought victims in Karnataka  or Nagapattinam's Tsunami victims in Tamil Nadu, he rushed to help people everywhere.
