Government has nothing to do with campaign against Wakf Board: Karnataka CM Bommai


Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Saturday that the state government had nothing to do with an ongoing campaign to ban the Wakf Board. Sri Rama Sene leader Pramod Muthalik has, in a new campaign on various platforms, demanded the banning of the Wakf Board and the laws that govern it.

Reacting to the request, Bommai said, “People practice their respective traditions. The government is run according to the laws. The government has nothing to do with these campaigns. All are equal in the eyes of the government. Maintaining law and order in the state is our goal. The Chief Minister made the statement to Bidar on Saturday.

The state has recently witnessed several faith-based campaigns, including a boycott of halal meat and a ban on Muslim traders at local temple fairs.

Reacting to AICC Secretary General Randeep Surjewala’s tweet on the bitcoin issue, Bommai said, “I answered the question in the Legislative Assembly itself. If he has information about the problem, let him submit it instead of tweeting. It does not mean anything.

The Congress leader posed a series of questions to Bommai and Karnataka Interior Minister Araga Jnanendra on Twitter on Friday about a post by Congressman Priyank Kharge that suggested the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) based in the United States was in New Delhi to investigate the bitcoin scam that came to light in Karnataka.
