Mangalore, 25th November 2022: After receiving threats to the Kadri Manjunath Temple, the management has sought additional security from the police. An unknown organisation – Islamic Resistance Council (IRC) – has threatened to attack the temple.

The group IRC, which took responsibility for the auto blast in Mangaluru, said it aimed to blast the temple, but the operation could not succeed. Following this, Jayamma, the chief executive officer of the Kadri Manjunatha temple, lodged a complaint with the Kadri police in the Dakshina district. The police gave this information on Friday.

The chief executive officer (CEO) of the temple has asked the police to act in the right direction regarding the threat received from the IRC and to take appropriate legal action in the matter. The CEO has said in the complaint that thousands of devotees come to the temple to offer prayers, so there is a need to take the threat seriously. The unknown Islamic organization also claimed responsibility for the Mangaluru auto blast case on Thursday and warned of more such attacks in the future.

IRC said, “The attempt by our brothers to attack the Qadri temple has failed. This attack did not succeed. State and central agencies are trying to arrest our brothers. However, we have successfully come out of their clutches. In future, there will be more such attacks. Mangaluru has become a stronghold of saffron terrorists. Our attempt has failed so far, but we are preparing for an attack in future, and by the attack, we will give a reply to state and central agencies.”

The Islamic organization has also warned ADGP (Law and Order) Alok Kumar. Alok Kumar is personally probing the Mangaluru blast case. Here, the investigating agency has intensified the search for Abdul Meena in the Mangaluru blast case. It is believed that he is the main hand behind this blast.
