Regulate Public Ganesha Utsav in Karnataka

This petition had 118 supporters

Dear Friends,

I face humiliation as a Hindu when there is an indecent film songs, Disco music ,other indecent songs & programmes being conducted in the Holy Ganesh utsav &  Visarjan during August-September season month of every year in Karnataka . Also making Ganesha idols in a filmy way which doesn't inculcate Bhakti to us. This is not the case of Karnataka but may be happening in other parts of India as well . We appreciate people getting associated & conducting Ganesh Utsav in the Public domain , but don't make it as a mockery to the ritual of Hinduism.

Celebrating Ganesh Utsav was started during 1893 by Shri Bal Gangadhar Tilak to make an opportunity for Indians to associate themselves in the Public Domain which was done difficult by the British Rule during Freedom Movement. Shri Bal Gangadhar Tilak championed it as a means to circumvent the colonial British government ban on Hindu gatherings through its anti-public assembly legislation in 1892.

As the festival started with good reason during 1893 , but see the fate nowadays where people are making it worse by preparing Ganesha in a filmy way & celebrating Ganesh Utsav & its immersion procession by playing  indecent film songs , Disco songs & other indecent events which i don't want to mention. 

Hence I want the State Government of Karnataka to ban this kind of indecent Ganesha Idols for Ganesh Utsav & playing indecent songs & events during Ganesh Visarjan & to set up  REGULATORY AUTHORITY FOR PUBLIC GANESHA FESTIVAL  to have a standard norms for a decent Ganesha Festival in the public domain.  I request everyone to support the  petition & upheld the spirit & fervour of PUBLIC GANESH UTSAV in the public domain.
