Yet Another Deceitful Agenda: Teeming Up of Mosques Under Various Guises

published on July 14, 2012

Kalpetta: There are widespread reports of Muslim places of worship mushrooming in Kerala, in spite of prohibitory regulations regarding the construction of places of worship. According to stipulated rules framed in 1996, the Central Ministry has declared that prior sanction from district collector is essential when it comes to setting up places of worship. However, the regulatory policy has been forsaken most conveniently by the members of the Muslim community. They are now resorting to a construction spree of mosques in every nook and corner of Kerala districts, the worst hit being Malappuram district, the place being a Muslim bastion.

However, places with lesser population of the Muslim community do not lag behind in any way. Take the instance of Wayanad District: the Meenangadi Panchayat has for itself 5 mosques. They have been built under different names. Permission is secured from the Panchayat under the guise of building residential quarters, resorts, home stays, hotels public restaurants etc. And what finally comes up is a mosque, where full-fledged worship takes place!!

Reports state very clearly when the construction work was at its zenith: during the 5 year tenure of the recent LDF government. Many panchayats have given sanction for the construction work, inspite of complete knowledge that what ultimately is going to come up is a mosque! Even though the proposal that is submitted is always a cover-up, it is quite easy to discern from the lay-out of the plan that the building is a mosque. But nothing stops the sanction and approval!

Mosques are teeming in Kerala under various belief groups like Sunni, Mujahid, JamaAte Islami AP, EK Sunnis etc. All this makes it quite evident that the elected members of the Panchayat and bigwigs of the minority community are in constant league when it comes to this spree in the construction of religious edifices. It is now being pointed out that these rampant constructions will inevitably lead to communal disharmony in future.
