Bengaluru: Karnataka BJP MLA made controversial comments. He made sensitive religious comments and once again opened a controversy and debate on the prayer of Azaan. Why should Azan prayers be performed over loudspeakers? Can Allah be heard only if it is done in loudspeakers? Does that mean Allah is deaf?’ He asked that and sparked a controversy.

Senior BJP leader and former minister KS Eshwarappa made these controversial comments. While addressing the people in a meeting, the Azan prayer from a nearby mosque was heard over the loudspeaker. He said, ‘Wherever I go… this (Azaan prayer) keeps giving me a headache’. ‘Supreme Court’s verdict is to be issued. If not today, then tomorrow… the day will soon come when the end card will fall for the Azaan prayers’, he said.

It didn’t stop there. Does Allah hear prayers only if loudspeakers are used? BJP leader asked. ‘Young women and girls offer their prayers and bhajans in temples. We are also religious. But, we don’t use loudspeakers. If you need loudspeakers to pray…does that mean Allah has ears to hear?’

Eshwarappa, who has also served as Deputy CM of Karnataka, is no stranger to controversies. In the past, the 18th century ruler of Mysore, Tipu Sultan, was mentioned in the name of Tipu Sultan, and he was a Muslim goon.

Eshwarappa resigned as a minister after a contractor committed suicide in Karnataka. In his suicide letter, the contractor stated that he was fully responsible for his suicide.
