PRAKASH Vs. DISTRICT COLLECTOR
HIGH COURT OF MADRAS (FROM: MADURAI)
Click here to view full judgement.
(1.)Heard both sides.
(2.)Lord Vinayaka symbolizes luck. He is worshipped by Hindus who believe that He will remove all obstacles. It was the great patriot Sri. Bal Gangadhar Tilak who organized Ganesh Chaturthi Processions. They have helped to unify the society by cutting across caste differences. The right to organize Vinayakar Chaturthi processions is not the subject matter of this writ petition and I therefore refrain from going into the issue.
(3.)Tomorrow the nation observes Vishwakarma jayanthi. Vishwakarma is particularly worshipped by artisans and workers. Vishwakarma is the supreme architect. It is ironic that the petitioner who is a Rajasthani artisan engaged in making Vinayaka idols is encountering difficulties at the hands of the authorities.
