Upananda Brahmachari | Kochi | HENB | Oct 13, 2018:: Mass protests are growing in Kerala day by day against Supreme Court’s Sabarimala verdict in Kerala. There was huge protest in Pandalam where thousands of women condemned the verdict of Supreme Court+. In Delhi, the Ayyappa devotees lodged their protest through a protest rally in Jantar Mantar. Social Media platforms are being flooded with the comments and criticism against the ‘ill conceived’ verdict of Supreme Court against the age old customs in Sabaramimala restricting entry of women of 10 -50 age group. Even then the Administration, Judiciary and Legislation in India are taking no importance of the issue denying the sentiment of millions of devotees in protest, only to appease a few in the courts who have no respect for Hindu customs nor they are the devotees of Lord Ayyappa.
Now, thousands of Lord Ayyappa devotees on Saturday took the streets in Kochi+ against the implementation of the Supreme Court verdict allowing women of all age groups into Sabarimala Temple, even as a fake ‘women rights’ activist Trupti Desai announced plans to visit the hill shrine soon.
Shiv Sena’s Kerala unit warned that its women activists will commit suicide+ if any young woman tries to enter the shrine while thousands of Lord Ayyappa devotees marched in Kochi to protest the Supreme Court verdict allowing ‘women of all age groups’ into the temple.
The Communist Party of India (Marxist)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) government, which decided to implement ruling, held a meeting here to evaluate the preparations carried out for pilgrims arriving at the temple which will open for monthly poojas on October 17 evening.
Though the government has not reacted to Desai’s planned trip to the temple yet, it has evoke sharp reactions from Ayyappa devotees and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which is campaigning against the entry of women into the hill shrine.
Padalam royal family member, Sasikumar Varma criticised Desai and urged the social activist to refrain from making any “provocative’ move.
He also asked the Left government to take steps to prevent any law and order situation.
Desai, the ‘Bhumata Brigade’ leader, said in Mumbai that she along with a group of women would visit the temple “shortly” to offer prayers.
“We will visit Sabarimala shortly. The ongoing agitation by devotees is the violation of the Supreme Court verdict. I appeal the agitating devotees to welcome those women who come for worship at the hill shrine,” she told Malayalam TV channels.
“I want to ask the Congress and the BJP whether they are against the the fundamental rights of women. The parties should also explain their stand on this,” Desai said.
But, there was huge prortest in Mumbai suburbs. On Saturday, Ayyappa devotees protested against Supreme Court Sabarimala verdict in Mumbai+. The protesters took a vow to teach a lesson to Desai in Mumbai, if she enters into Sabarimala.
The protesters in Kerala went all out to resist any probable aggression of Rights activists in Sabarimala. Holding placards bearing pictures of Lord Ayyappa and chanting his hymns, the protesters marched through the busy roads of Kochi, the state’s commercial hub, after launching the stir from the famed Shiva temple there.
On Friday, Chennai also witnessed the same determination of the Malayali Hindu women to abide by Sabarimala traditions+, without exception.
Members of the Pandalam royal family, who claim a strong bond with Lord Ayappa, took part in a ‘Namajapa Yakjam’ protest in Kochi on October 12.
The faithful, a large number of them women, urged both the Central and the state governments to intervene in the matter to protect the sanctity of the centuries-old rituals and traditions of the hill shrine.
Meanwhile, the ‘Long March’ led by BJP-headed National Democratic Alliance (NDA) reached Kollam district on Saturday.
Party state president, P S Sreedharan Pillai, who lead the rally, said Desai was visiting Sabarimala as she perceived it to be a challenge rather than a pilgrimage.
“It is a dangerous approach. She should desist from visiting the shrine and should not make Sabarimala a tension zone,” he said.
“I do not know whether she is a devotee or not. But she is coming to add fuel to the fire,” Pillai added.
Claiming that the NDA rally in Kerala was getting tremendous support from all sections of people, the leader said the march would reach the state capital on October 15.
It was because of the success of the NDA long march that the ruling CPI(M)-led LDF was forced to launch counter campaigns and family get-togethers to explain the Left government’s stand on the Sabarimala issue, Pillai added.
Hindu Activist Rahul Easwar, who already announced hunger strike at Sabarimala during the five-day monthly pooja period, said they would stop Trupti Desai if she attempts to visit the Lord Ayyappa Temple.
In a tweet, Padma Pillai, a ‘Ready to Wait’ leader significantly indicated a worsening suituation, if Govt would allow a few insensible rights activist and to crush down the public agitation to ‘Save Sabarimala’ from a ‘draconian Supreme Court Verdict’.
Padma twitted: “On 17th Oct, Hindus will try to protect
#Sabarimala from desecration. Kerala Govt on Subramanian Swamy’s advice, may shoot us. PM please keep your condolence tweet ready for that too“.
GOVTS IN CENTER AND KERALA MUST NOT OVERLOOK THE SABARIMALA WALL WRITING.
The law and order situation in Kerala is becoming more vulnerable in the context of upcoming monthly Pooja of Lord Ayyappa on and from 17 Oct and the entry of some ‘fake women activists’ in Sabarimala Shrine during that period. Such conflicts in Sabarimala may cause bloodbath and deaths.
Supreme Court and the Central Govt led by BJP and the State Govt led by CPIM all will be responsible for any disaster in Sabarimala.
The Parliament must pass an ordinance to Protect the Sabarimala rituals.
Passing an Ordinance in favour of the Hindu sentiments in Kerala to save age old Sabarimala rituals will certainly benefit the BJP. Otherwise, it will be an another story of BJP double standard while the State unit of BJP is Protesting the Sabarimala Verdict and the Central BJP is supporting the same.
Passing an Ordinance in Parliament to Protect the Sabarimala rituals, is the only way to prevent a huge bloodbath, suicide and casualties in Kerala.
