Balapur Ganesh

From 1980 to 1982, the Balapur Ganesh immersion festival ended peacefully but in the year 1983, it has undergone some communal disputes creating fear in the minds of the people of Hyderabad regarding religious festivals.

Not wanting to break the tradition of the festival, the Ganesh Mandap was setup by the Ganesh Utsav Samithi in 1984, following the curfew in 1983. But this time around, the Hyderabad Police provided the village with huge security force with numbers reaching to 400 in number (Speacial ops – Rapid Action Force). And every year, this seems to be increasing proportionately as the number of people visiting the village is increasing.
