Bangalore, Sep 27 (UNI) The Karnataka government will set up a state-level 'religious harmony committee' in the wake of increasing incidence of communal violence in the state.

Talking to newspersons here today, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa said the committee would have the Home Minister, Legislative Assembly Speaker, Legislative Council Chairman and police officials as its members.

The committee's objective would be to promote harmony among various religious communities in the state. Such committees would be set up at district-level too, he added.

To a question on fresh attacks on places of worship of the minority community in the city and Mangalore, he said he held a review meeting with police officials today and instructed them to beef up security in sensitive areas.

Reffering to the bomb blasts in New Delhi, he alleged that the Centre's ''soft stand'' on anti-nationals and terrorists was the main reason for the recurrence of such incidents.
