‘Azaan gives headache’ Karnataka BJP leader’s controversial statement

by Ana Lopez

Karnataka Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) senior leader K.S. Eshwarappa has once again made a controversial statement regarding the azaan given by mosques before offering prayers. Eshwarappa’s statement is likely to rekindle the Azan controversy.
Former Deputy Chief Minister K.S. As Eshwarappa was addressing a public meeting, the Adhan was heard from a nearby mosque. Regarding this he said, “Wherever I go, Azan gives me a headache. The order of the Supreme Court is about to come. If not today, tomorrow, the Azan will surely stop….”
He raised the question whether Allah will hear your prayer only when a loudspeaker is used for the Azan. Even in temples, girls and women pray, sing bhajans. We are also religious, but we don’t use loudspeakers.
KS Eshwarappa has had a long history with controversies. Earlier too, he had created a controversy by calling the 18th century ruler of Mysore, Tipu Sultan, a ‘Muslim thug’. Last year, Eshwarappa had to resign from the post of minister following the suicide of a contractor. The contractor blamed Eshwarappa for his death in his last messages and hence his name was included in the police case.
