“The procession will begin at Milad Park near St Joseph’s Cathedral (St Philomena Church) and culminate at the premises of Kote Anjaneyaswamy Temple. The rally will be held through Ashoka Road. Leaders of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Vishwa Hindu Parishat (VHP) and Popular Front of India (PFI) will attend the rally. Mayor M J Ravi Kumar and religious leaders will attend,” he said.
“No microphones will be used in the rally. There will not be any speech. The rally will hold only one banner, ‘We are humans, we are one.’ Religious leaders will hold oath of humanity, solidarity at the end of the rally,” he added.
“We are all saddened by the communal violence in South Canara. Our peace should not be violated for political gains. Religion is to develop human relationships and not to harm it. To achieve this, we are organising the rally,” Urs said.
