New Delhi, 19th May. The Madras High Court has rejected a petition filed by Muslims seeking a ban on Hindu festivals and processions.

Idolatry is a sin for us. We will not encourage it. This is a territory dominated by us.

However, the court rejected the petition and strongly criticized the intolerance shown against Hindus.

The Muslims demanded that Hindu festivals be banned in areas where they were in the majority.

The court asked if Hindus have thought like this since independence and wondered what your situation would be like.

Kalathoor is a Hindu minority town in the Perambalur district. The Muslim community often protested against the procession and the uprisings from the Hindu temples.

According to PTI, Muslims in the area have been opposing the Hindu march since 2012. Islamic fundamentalists refer to Hindu festivals as the ‘Celebration of Sin’.

Since the Muslim community dominates a particular area, another religious community cannot be prevented from celebrating festivals or marching in the streets of that area.

Festivals that have been held together for decades cannot be banned because of the intolerance of a particular religious sect.

If religious intolerance is allowed, it is not good for a secular country. The court ruled that intolerance of any kind should be abandoned by the Muslim community and should not lead to conflicts and riots with religious narrow-mindedness.

The court observed that Muslims were trying to establish their dominance by making such demands.
