Why was there a conflict within Owaisi’s party on Tipu Jayanti? Two split in AIMIM over Hubli Idgah ground


On Tipu Jayanti, there was a fight inside Owaisi’s party.

In Karnataka, there has been a dispute among the leaders of Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi’s party AIMIM over the celebration of Tipu Sultan Jayanti. Whereas, surprisingly, the BJP-ruled Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC) has also given permission to celebrate Tipu Sultan Jayanti at Idgah Maidan in Hubli. But, on the contrary, differences between Owaisi’s leaders about celebrating it came to the fore. Vijay Guntral, joint secretary of AIMIM’s Dharwad district, had given its permission from the corporation and started its preparations. However, the party’s district president and member of Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation Nazir Ahmed Honyal opposed organizing the program at Idgah ground. He has also talked about informing the big leaders of the party about this.

According to Guntral, “First a meeting was held within the party and it was decided that it should be celebrated. All the party members attended the meeting. I had given the memorandum on letterhead after talking to Nazir Ahmed and others. On the contrary, Honyal said that ‘if my party had asked for permission, it would have been on my letterhead, because I am the district president of Dharwad. The Idgah ground has been used by our ancestors for Nawaz since years. Despite this, the court ordered that the flag would be flown twice and prayers would be offered twice. Ganesh Chaturthi was held here. Tipu Jayanti can also be celebrated in our homes. Our ancestors never celebrated Tipu Jayanti at the Idgah ground. Vijay Guntral’s decision is his own, not the party’s.

On Wednesday itself, HDMC has given permission to Owaisi’s party to celebrate Tipu Jayanti at Idgah ground in Hubli. For this, the organizers have to deposit Rs 10,000 with the corporation. Apart from AIMIM, some other organizations have also sought permission from the corporation to celebrate the birth anniversary of Mysore ruler Tipu Sultan at Idgah ground next month. ANI quoted Mayor Iresh Anchatagiri as saying, “The Hubballi Dharwad Municipal Corporation has given permission to celebrate Tipu Jayanti and birth anniversaries of national heroes and religious leaders on the basis of certain conditions. Fees will have to be deposited in the corporation, the officials will have to take proper permission.

Karnataka Home Minister Araga Gyanendra also told the news agency, ‘This matter is related to Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation and Mayor, Karnataka Chief Minister will look into it.’ In August this year, the Karnataka High Court had also allowed the celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi at the Idgah ground. This was the first time that any festival of Hindus was celebrated in this disputed ground.

Brief History of Hubli Idgah Ground

Brief History of Hubli Idgah Ground

Till last August, Nawaz was recited by local Muslims only twice a year on the occasions of Ramzan and Bakrid at the Hubli Idgah ground. According to some old reports, till the decades before independence, various types of fairs were also held in this ground and meetings of political parties were also held. But, gradually this ground was used for Nawaz only twice a year. But, due to the order of the Karnataka High Court, from this year, Hindu festivals have also started being organized there and the rest have also started getting permission.
