3. It is pertinent to mention here that due to past conduct and antecedent of Mr. Prabin Togodia the Christian Minority community of the state has suffered irreparable loss. More than 100 educational Institutions & Christian shops and thousands of Christian houses were burnt and ransacked. More than Hundred churches and prayer halls were torched, Hundreds of vehicles were damaged in the communally sensitive state during the riot. The place of worships were desecrated, women raped and Christian priests were subjected to inhuman torture. Christians were burnt alive. 50,000 people were displaced. Many villagers had to hide in the forests to save their lives. The law and order situation in the state was completely paralyzed.
4. It is worthwhile to mention here that the Karnataka Police has banned entry of Mr. Togodia into the city from 5.2.2015 to 11.2.2015 because Mr.Togadia’s previous visits to the State had triggered communal violence. Challenging the said ban by police Commissioner, a writ petition was filed before the Hon’ble Karnataka High Court by the VHP. The Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka dismissed the interim prayer of RSS and upheld the ban imposed by city Police Commissioner on his entry into the city to attend a religious convention scheduled to be held on 8th Feb 2015.
