Speak up against fundamentalism: CM

No religion in the world tolerates and encourages terrorism. Peace lovers and those with religious sense should speak out against fundamentalism, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said here on Sunday.

Speaking on the sidelines of participation at Eid Milad organised by Eid-e-Milad central committee at YMCA Grounds, he said: “All religions preach peace and no religion propagates terrorism. Terrorism will not do any good to the society. Fundamentalists of all religions are dangerous to the society. It is not good to poison the society in the name of God and religion,” he added.

Siddaramaiah said every individual has the right to choose the religion he/ she wants to follow. “Congress government is working by keeping in mind secularism,” he said.

The event marked by processions and prayers was attended by more than 10,000 people. They marched from Mysore Road and covered Cottonpet, Neelasandra, Malleswaram, City Market, Shivajinagar, Tilaknagar, Bismillanagar, Banashankari, Bommanahalli, Siddapur, Hegadenagar and converged at the YMCA Grounds.
Thousands of people attended the procession held by Markazi Meelad-o-Seerat Committee and marched from Bilal Masjid, Tannery Road till Madina Masjid Grounds, New Bamboo Bazaar.

It is an auspicious day for all of us.” All Karnataka Meelaed-o-Juloos-e-Rahmatul Aalameen Committee too observed the event by flagging off a procession at Tannery Road.
