The Supreme Court (SC) halted the Karnataka High Court and state government's decision to allow Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations at Bengaluru's Idgah Maidan tomorrow. It ordered the maintenance of 'status quo' in the matter. The Karnataka Waqf Board had approached the Supreme Court against Karnataka High Court's decision and said that no such festivals have been held there "for 200 years".
