Calcutta HC lifts Bengal ban on Durga idol immersion

Calcutta HC lifts Bengal ban on Durga idol immersion

Rajeev Kumar, the commissioner of Kolkata Police, said at least 2,600 community puja organisers have already obtained permission from the administration for immersion.

The home secretary said that to seek permission for immersion of the Durga idols, puja organisers were required to follow a standard protocol. "The safety aspects involved with the procession and immersion will be of utmost important, based on which final call will be taken on whether to accept or reject the application", he said.

"Yesterday, most of the media reported wrongly information that the High Court revoked the state government's decision on banning immersion on Muharram day".

The state government's restrictions on Durga idol immersion after 10 pm and ban on immersions on Muharram day had triggered a furore, with the BJP accusing Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of playing the "politics of appeasement". VHP on Sashtra PujanIn another jolt to state government, Vishwa Hindu Parishad has got permission from Calcutta High Court for "Sashtra pujan".

"We are not going to move Supreme Court because the Calcutta High Court order is actually in our favour". The authorities are anxious that people from outside may try to foment trouble.

The Calcutta High Court on Thursday lifted all the restrictions on Durga Puja immersion imposed by the West Bengal government, allowing it till 12 a.m. on all days including on "Ashura", the tenth day of the Islamic month of Muharram.

"Let them live in harmony". The court had allowed immersions on all days including Muharram. According to police sources, police will have the right to turn down any application if it feels that the immersion procession might lead to law and order problems.

The decision has been taken by the CM in a high-level meeting at state Secretariat Nabbana. Place facts with logic.

The court had said before Thursday on the matter that the government cannot interfere in the faith of the people. "You are exercising extreme power without any concrete logic".
